Blue44 is a genre-bending improvisational ensemble whose music is rooted in jazz. Reflecting today's rapidly changing and unpredictable cultural and musical landscape, Blue44 mixes in elements such as spoken word, latin, world-beat and funk to create a fresh groove based sound. Ambient grooves, sometimes called Acid Jazz or Nu Jazz, with simple harmonic structures provide a deconstructed musical foundation on which musical journeys are embarked in an unpredictable, improvisational format.
While Blue44 grooved at Candelas last night, yours truly was hanging out on Boulevard St. Laurent with Al and Zak....eating crepes, drinking coffee, watching people walk by, everybody happy to feel the few warm rays of the spring sun touch their faces.
Tonight, Al and I are going to go looking for some improv - of any kind. Music, comedy, whatever.
