Details:
For seven years, Landon Knoblock and Jason Furman worked in the Miami music scene, performing at weddings, clubs, and corporate gigs. They never performed jazz or creative music together, only Top 40 and Pop music. On a whim, they decided to do a recording session, shortly before Landon moved to Brooklyn. With no musical agenda, and a few hours in the studio, Landon and Jason improvised songs just for fun. This recording is the result. A mix of melody and cacophony, double bass drum and brushes, prepared piano and toy piano, this album covers a broad spectrum of moods and textures. Although the music sounds composed at times, the performances were completely improvised with minor edits to establish individual tracks. Highly artistic and purely interactive, Landon Knoblock and Jason Furman create an organic performance that resists traditional stereotypes, drawing the listener into a new realm of creative music.
