NOW a NEW RELEASE, January 2017!
“The Eb Lydian Augmented Project” Kadima Recordings
A year-long collaboration between Jean Claude Jones (contrabass) and Stephen Horenstein (baritone Saxophone) finally comes to fruition with this forthcoming release. Two play as an orchestra, exploring a special Japanese bass tuning and array of baritone multiphonics, creating a surprising unity between the two instruments. The release includes an extended audio CD as well as a DVD of excerpts and narrations.
The Eb Lydian Augmented Project, Steve Horenstein/JC Jones
Purchase at amazon.com and CD Baby.
Five tracks of two players like an orchestra. This extended collaborative composition by Jones and Horenstein was one year in the making. It explores the many hidden timbres of these two instruments (contra bass and baritone saxophone), built from a traditional Japanese bass tuning which naturally produces the “parent scale” (Eb Lydian Augmented) which re-occurs throughout the piece.
