Symon's New Blue Diamonds is a six-piece instrumental rock band that features the music of Symon Michael, an avant garde jazz composer who paints musical narrations and landscapes using a rock pallete rather than the traditional jazz fare.
A standard power trio (bass, guitar and drums) is augmented by a three-piece horn section consisting of two tenor saxes and a trumpet.
The overall effect is LOUD and at the same time very tasty - biting rock melodies offset by a comical wedge of horns. Unique, unpredictable, and always a lot of fun!
Historical notes about the music and the band:
A lot of this music was originally written for film and advertising when Symon worked as a composer and transcriber for The Music Workshop in S.F. After writing advertising jingles and thematic pieces for local films for a few years, one of Symon's friends suggested that he simply rescore some of the pieces for a live stage act. When it was noted that "It sounds like some damn carnival band!", the suggestion was made that the band simply dress the part and go with the festival atmosphere that the music invoked.
So, that's exactly what happened - "Symon's New Blue Diamonds" was born, and from the very start began appearing on local stages in full clown costumes and makeup. If you were in San Francisco during the early 1990's and caught one of the shows, you were priveledged to experience one of the most unique "scene" bands of the era. If not, you can still purchase the CD and relive the magic...
Currently, Symon is working on various projects, including a video shoot and the release of the brand new Symon's New Blue Diamonds album titled "One Hundred Nights Of Passion". The new album will be available in February of 2008 on CD Baby, along with some other fun stuff!
