BLUE STREAK, the newest recording from Astral Project, highlights the individual virtuosity and refined collective consciousness of this unique ensemble. The many years of experience which the quartet shares are clearly evident in the superb solos, tight ensemble passages and almost telepathic interplay.
Live In New Orleans (DVD/CD)
On LIVE IN NEW ORLEANS, Astral Project rips through a 92 minute live set at Snug Harbor, New Orleans’ premier jazz bistro. The DVD contains eight originals, poetry by drummer John Vidacovich and a impassioned version of Billy Strayhorn’s “Blood Count.” While the accompanying CD contains seven of the ten cuts, all tracks are available on the DVD as MP3s and can also be downloaded on iTunes.
The Legend Of Cowboy Bill
Astral Project is an all-star band that greatly benefits from the rarity of a long, satisfying history. The result, as heard on THE LEGEND OF COWBOY BILL, is the unique quality of an identifiable group sound that also regales in the distinctive voices of each of its hugely talented musicians.
