JAMU is a jammin’ septet in two movements. The second movement is nothing more than a series of melodic and rhythmic grooves over an insistent vamp upon which the players can improvise. It was a joy to write music for Classical Jam with their unique approach to the normally staid realm of classical music.
Live premiere performance on Jan 17th, 2015 at Tenri Cultural Institute, NYC. Classical Jam, with Yumi Kurosawa, koto, and the composer on shakuhachi.
