Airborne appears again in the spotlight with his recent, New Horizons, an original patchwork of classic pop forms and world music. Its language is constructed, revealing some bright moments.
Airborne, the well known multi-cultural contemporary jazz group from New Haven, Connecticut, has the ability to do it all well. New Horizons takes the listener into soundscapes through lyrical ways exploring the individual player's idiosyncrasies which in exchange creates color schemes available to all listeners.
These musicians can really spark a fire from their voices. They explore music styles with absolute mastery of phrasing and exploding emotions, crossing all dynamics.The music carries great intensity and energy . "Thanks God is Friday" and "We are all Children of this World" are creative tracks filled with different intonations and attacks.
"New Horizons" is a piece where interpretation, instrumentation, orchestration and multi-rhythmic creation are colliding to offer a great contribution to World Music. "A Saturday Afternoon" intermingles reeds, strings and keyboards accompanied with melodic vocals . "From Jazz To James" combines talent, originality and confidence, without a doubt carrying the test of purely spontaneous and expressive Pop but also Funk jazz sounds.
New Horizons is truly an interesting release that holds your attention from the first track to conclusion with its musical approach. Through twelve tracks, Airborne offers an eclectic vision of their music world.
