Jassical on Edgetone Records

The "Jassical" concept is not a concept is not a combination of musical styles, but rather a cognitive paradigm. By design, this creates an expanding, evolving matrix of pitches with mysterious subliminal excitement and rich harmonic choices.
The violin and flute improvisations are 100% spontaneous. No charts, no written music, no rehearsal. The soloists have total freedom to explore their intuition. The result is spontaneous beauty. Exhilarating freedom is born of uninhibited expression. Meditative as well as contemplative.

James Freeman studied at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and CaliforniaJazz Conservatory. His minimalist composition, Mystc Mountain, was performed by the San Francisco Symphony. He has written ballet pieces, fronted original pop bands and achieved notoriety with his avant-garde ensemble, The 700 Club. After touring extensively, he now performs solo classical and jazz guitar as well as local performance of his jassical duets.
