Jaimie Branch Fly Or Die
“This is free jazz, in that it’s free of constraints.” –The Village Voice
Fly or Die is jazz trumpeter/composer/improviser Jaimie Branch’s vanguard NYC-by-way-of-Chicago quartet with an unorthodox instrumentation of trumpet, cello, bass, and drums. But it’s this very unorthodoxy that fuels her focused and phenomenal compositions that touch on—and then transcend—post-bop, noise-rock, and chamber jazz. Landing on best of lists everywhere, the band’s debut album is a celestial landscape of sound, and the work of a “hardscrabble imagination” (The New York Times). With Lester St Louis cello, Jason Ajemian bass, Chad Taylor (Chicago Underground Duo) drums.
