descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Composed while staring into the night sky of the MacDowell Colony in the United States during the winter of 2010-11, the music on Andromeda traces the nomadic saxophonist's inner progress, achieving its own synthesis of different jazz trends and improvisational systems. Transcending genres and cultures, Alexandra Grimal's music is both powerful and telluric, creating a unique, weaving world, tailor-made for her co-performers Todd Neufeld, Thomas Morgan and Tyshawn Sorey.

Continually striving to surpass itself, Grimal's work is one that collects and assembles but loses none of its integrity and unity in the process. An interstellar odyssey in the form of a symphony, Andromeda was recorded thanks to the support of the Chamber Music of America (CMA) / French-American Jazz Exchange (FACE) programme, supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, Cultures France and the French Music Export Office (FMEO)."-Ayler Records


Artist Biographies:

"Tyshawn Sorey (born July 8, 1980 in Newark, New Jersey) is an American musician and composer who plays drum set, percussion, trombone and piano.

Since graduating from William Paterson University, Sorey has been a sought-after musician in many different musical idioms. He is both a performer and composer, and has had works reviewed in The Wire, The New York Times, The Village Voice, Modern Drummer and Down Beat. In August 2009, Sorey was given the opportunity to curate a month of performances at the Stone, a New York performance space owned by John Zorn. He was selected as an Other Minds 17 (2012).

Sorey recently completed a Master of Arts in composition at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. In the fall of 2011, he began pursuing doctoral work in composition at Columbia University.

To date, Sorey has released four albums as a leader: That/Not (2007, Firehouse 12 Records), Koan (2009, 482 Music), Oblique (2011, Pi Recordings) and Alloy (2014, Pi Recordings). He has recorded or performed with musicians including Wadada Leo Smith, Steve Coleman, Anthony Braxton, John Zorn, Steve Lehman, Joey Baron, Muhal Richard Abrams, Pete Robbins, Vijay Iyer, Dave Douglas, Butch Morris and Sylvie Courvoisier, among many others."
