descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Jason Ajemian's music conjures a fever dream of multiple musical universes. The bassist-composer has acquired a high profile during his years in Chicago and New York, performing with Marc Ribot's Sun Ship, Matt Bauder's Day In Pictures, Matana Robert's CoinCoin, Rob Mazurek's Exploding Star Orchestra and Chicago Underground Trio.

Folklords is the sound of an outstanding group of New York improvisors (Kid Bliss, Owen Stewart-Robertson and Jason Nazary) performing six conceptual, visual and sonic landscapes. Meditative Mingus ballads, imaginary conversations between Sun Ra and Thelonious Monk, poetic takes on pop culture, and an elegy for Malachi Rischter are transmitted via Ajemian's unique notational methodology. FOLKLORDS defies genre with an adhesiveness that expands on the creative music tradition through a social/cultural lens of now."-Delmark
