Not To Miss – Number 6
Not To Miss is a bi-monthly column dedicated to all things music related that might have fallen through the cracks. Holophonor/Light Magnet/World Galaxy / Alpha Pup Records The seven-piece jazz ensemble called Holophonor, all graduates of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, convey nuanced urgency with their lead single "Zirma." The unswerving and gallant forthcoming full release "Light Magnet," produced by jazz master Wayne Shorter, is a 13-track display of taste and superior dexterity. "Zirma," barely clocking in over two minutes, is an impassioned trip of percussive communication equipped with bells, vocal screams, and a melodic horn line to ride out the statement. It becomes quite clear why Don Was, legendary producer and president of Blue Note Records, recommended the band to Wayne Shorter. World Galaxy will release Holophonor's Light Magnet October 6, 2017, across digital and physical formats. Madeline
