Working with saxophonist David Binney, pianist/keyboardist Matt Mitchell, drummers Kenny Wollesen and Nate Wood, in addition to a wide-ranging and eclectic supporting cast of musicians, Nachoff creates a series of his most ambitious and wide-ranging pieces to date. Initially inspired by the lunar eclipse of 2017, the compositions incorporate aleatoric structures borrowed from the classical realm alongside electronic textures and passages of free improvisation to make the music more open and expressive. The long forms allow the outstanding band to stretch out, augmented by such exotica as a Kimball Theatre Organ, tuned percussion and tap dancer Orlando Hernández, plus the addition of brass and winds.
