Electronic music was once thought of as subversively avant-garde. But jazz soon took the modernism of electronics down a less self-destructive and more communicative road. Saxophonist and composer JD Allen explores the possibilities of electronics+jazz with new works that exhibit a wide musical spectrum. Here you may find modal, blues-infused melodies juxtaposed against startling and provocative electronic effects. There can be a slim line between being a traditionalist troglodyte and being a radical visionary. On his latest recording, JD Allen has demonstrated that there is a musically satisfying and emotionally fulfilling middle ground.
