BIG NEIGHBORHOOD, 11:11
(Origin 82467)



Big Neighborhood continues to explore their unique blend of genre, texture & dynamics with this specially priced 2-CD set of all original music. Although thoroughly steeped in the jazz tradition, Big Neighborhood's compositions and improvising gives them a voice of their own that rewards casual and careful listeners alike.

Big Neighborhood is a thoroughly original band that is engaging and creative, pushing the listener beyond the confines of tradition. Firmly rooted in improvisational modern jazz, the band also explores territories touched on by Pat Metheny and John Scofield. The band is led by guitarist David White who spent 18 years in New York and Boston before relocating to Seattle where the group is based. "...The interplay of the musicians and the fire with which they play is beyond categorization. This is music. It transcends labels and fashion..." Cadence.
