Creating magic with experimental chordless sounds, the quartet ‘Aura’ present their debut album.
A quartet of 4 young musicians (each an emerging name in Australian Jazz and Improvised Music), ‘Aura’ present their debut recording as an ensemble.
Aura pays homage to the great chord-less jazz quartets of Ornette Coleman and Sonny Rollins, while drawing on contemporary Australian artists like Andrea Keller, The Necks and the Australian Art Orchestra.
Different musical voices and improvisatory strengths come to the fore in works by each ensemble member. This harmonious approach in combination with the individual prowess of each artist presents a definite aura of magic from this youthful band.
