CROSS-BORDER JAZZ SERIES

Pneuma is an ancient Greek word for “breath”, “spirit” or “soul”. This quartet features four improvisers/composers: vocalist Ayelet Rose Gottlieb and clarinetists James Falzone, Francois Houle and Michael Winograd. Pneuma’s sound is kaleidoscopic – many worlds entangled –blending contemporary electro-acoustic turbulent energies with gentle gestures inspired by Klezmer and jazz-infused improvisations. Presenting a poetry infused set, their music is “a globally-informed emotional panoply” (NYC Jazz Record) inspired by the wind. They create music “where notes seem to leap off the page and into the air, there to intertwine and dance in magical forms” (World Music Report).

Pneuma made their premiere at the 2017 Vancouver International Jazz Festival. Their debut album, “Who Has Seen the Wind?” was recently released on the esteemed Canadian label, Songlines Recordings.

“A dream-like reverie of vibrantly colourful melodic meanderings…The smoky yet luminously smooth and clear tone of Ayelet’s voice accompanies a non-linear weave of percolating rhythmic and melodic fragments… Like Ayelet’s voice, the tones of the clarinets are rounded and clear, with perfect intonation… There is tremendous musicianship here… a masterpiece of a kind.”
