Airborne – Back in the Dayz – Airborne Anthology
Airborne, the multi-cultural contemporary jazz group from New Haven, CT USA is moving forward with their 8th CD Back in the Dayz – Airborne Anthology. This project is a wonderful collection of new material and edited and re-mastered compositions from other Airborne CD’s.
It is a testimony to jazz artists of integrity, whose inspiration and imagination capture your thoughts with music with a cause. Joyful Jazz with a Message! Airborne the proclaimed “Musical Peacemakers” of Contemporary Jazz formed in 1988 celebrates years of recordings, jazz festivals, gigs, and the whole ups and downs of being musicians. The members have toured Europe, Japan and across the USA. Airborne has many successful CD’s and has received worldwide airplay and international acclaim.
Back in the Dayz – Airborne Anthology takes you onboard a magical and musical journey to a motivating, high energy, intensely creative, yet peaceful serenity of island passion and complex urban emotion where the compassion of Airborne raises up the spirit of humility and reflects the empathy and moral obligation we as people of dignity must adhere to.
One has to admire Airborne, a veteran jazz band that has made inroads into the hearts of jazz fans across the world over the years. They are a supercharged carnival of musicians that add a much needed dose of global adventure to jazz. Airborne’s musical recipe takes a can of straight ahead jazz with Caribbean and Latino influences. Pour in a few tablespoons of jazz fusion and a heaping cup of urban street funk. Then cook all ingredients with pure technical talent till it gets boiling hot.
Inspiring compositions of depth and character we’ve come to expect from this world class jazz group! A pleasant offering to jazz lovers who reach out for new expressions! Airborne gives one hope that Contemporary Jazz is still alive! Their album is arrived at CDBaby.
