This Thursday, November 8, The Jazz Gallery welcomes saxophonist/composer Felipe Salles and his new large ensemble to our stage to celebrate the release of The Lullaby Project and Other Works for Large Ensemble (Tapestry). A native of São Paulo, Brazil, Salles mines the music of his youth for the music on the album—namely traditional Brazilian lullabies. Through deft compositional manipulations, Salles highlights the tunes’ dark underlying qualities, and, in the composers own words, creates “a strong aural image in the listener’s mind.”
Before coming out to the Gallery to hear these psychologically-probing works, check out the album trailer, below.
