|Whether called Meditative Jazz, World Jazz, or World Fusion, Neon Egypt's offering is decidedly unique. Expressive, free-flowing saxophone melodies float gracefully over Taiko-like melodic drum lines, featuring the one-of-a-kind Shendai Ceremonial Drums.|
All of Neon Egypt's selections are "first takes" of spontaneously improvised intuitive music, recorded live. None of their pieces have a predetermined form or concept, a title, or even a key or time signature before play is begun - each is truly a unique product of the moment. Yet each has clear musicality, satisfying coherence and unmistakable structure. The broad foundation of melodic drum and percussion music created by Steven Miller's Shendai Ceremonial Drums allows master jazz saxophone soloist Harrison Goldberg freedom to weave an artful musical offering in real time. The result... well, you are invited to listen for yourself!
