Jason Yarde's ACOUTASTiC BOMBASTiC
Jason Yarde celebrates the debut album of his large ensemble full of multi-instrumentalists.
ACOUTASTiC BOMBASTiC is a large ensemble featuring some of the UK's finest multi-instrumentalists and musical mavericks. Helmed by composer, arranger, producer and Musical Director Jason Yarde it was born out of a childhood dream that saw a handful of musicians exploring in a vast room full of different musical instruments.
Now a reality, the ensemble is founded on a number of long-term musical friendships. First coming together to perform 'Random Wishes and Abstract Dreams’, Yarde's Jerwood/Cheltenham International Jazz Festival commission, they have only made a select few special appearances since. Within the ranks of the ensemble lurks a Saxophone Quartet, a String Ensemble and a Choir, that can collectively groove, float, swing and potentially travel the globe from one measure to the next.
With their much-anticipated debut album imminent, they will be premiering new explorations as a 10+ piece ensemble with a host of collaborators to be revealed.
