This is a recording of the ten minute piece kindly commissioned by Alan F Jones for the Organ for the Senses festival held annually at the Spreckels Pavilion in San Diego using their open air organ. The music was performed by Justin Murphy-Mancini and recorded by Alan Jones. This audio is from a rehearsal performance a few days before the public premiere on 27 May 2017.
The trio with Steve Noble (drums) and Seymour Wright (alto saxophone) will be doing a short residency in Stockholm in mid-january including this concert as part of FRIM’s series at Fylkingen. We’ll then head to Norway for concerts in Oslo and Trondheim before coming back to Stockholm for two day’s recording at Atlantis Studion.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body
