A Jazzy Taste
of Mystical Egypt...
Egypt, an outgrowth of
the popular San Francisco
improvisational jazz quartet Tabula
is widely considered to have pioneered a new jazz-based hybrid of
Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Intuitive Music.
Their first album, Tales Of Kings, released in May of 2000, is
recognized as a ground-breaker of the genre.
EGYPT - UNEARTHED
second album, Unearthed,
is due for release in early 2020. It is a collection of twelve
pieces compiled from previously undiscovered tracks recorded during the
same time period as Tales Of Kings. The
CD will first be available on CD Baby, but will soon appear on iTunes,
Amazon Music, etc.
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
Have a listen...
Passage To Djibouti
"A fresh morning... New movement,
of the Lotus PLAY
"Many come by day
But the night...
Night of the Lotus
Those who know her
Taste the sweetness"
Egypt's selections are "first takes" of spontaneously improvised Intuitive Music, captured
live in binaural stereo. 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. The broad foundation
of melodic drum and percussion music created by Steven Miller's Shendai
Ceremonial Drums allows saxophone soloist Harrison Goldberg
freedom to weave an artful musical offering in real time. The result..? You are invited to listen for yourself.

exotic artistic excursion!
