Guy writes: ‘This music is about cross-cultural jazz, a phenomenon that from about 1960 becomes pivotal in the history of improvisation. Luminaries such as John and Alice Coltrane, Ravi Shankar, Miles Davis, Shakti, Oregon, Charlie Mariano, Karnataka College of Percussion, and Joe Zawinul are notable examples. The diverse cultural influences that I have absorbed over a long time are integral to my approach to jazz. Thus, the use of South Indian gamaka and flamenco-type falsetas, for example, do not feel, nor I hope sound, like borrowed elements. Rather, they reflect a syncretic experience resulting from the music, musicians, and cultures that have inspired me, and still do. In this sense, they represent the history of my musical identity.’
Innovative master guitarist & composer, Guy Strazz, is in fine company for the launch of his new CD, Eastern Blues, with players such as Aaron, Hugh and Toby. This synergetic band will present a type of cross-cultural art-music improvisation and composition derived from Latin jazz, funk and Indian music; influences that are integral musical expression of the Strazz World Jazz sound.
