Splice Originals Jazz Cuts feat. Alita Moses WAV
This pack is the first of a five-part series created over the course of five sessions in New York. Splice Originals: Jazz Cuts was recorded and composed much like an album would be executed. This installment embodies the cool jazz scene of the west coast with an added dose of Gil Evans-style orchestration. Some of the other influences were Bill Evans, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Flying Lotus, Freddie Hubbard, Stan Getz, Astrud Gilberto, and Antonio Carlos Jobim.
We also played homage to those who brought California jazz into another genre, and therefore, another era. You’ll find a heavy dose of J Dilla and Madlib-style boom-bap on the flipped side. The result is a multi-tracked orchestra, chopped and reimagined. It’s smokey jazz meets sweeping strings and horns all set to banging boom-bap beats. These sounds simultaneously evoke the nostalgia of underground clubs from the 1950s and early 2000s, taking us on a true journey through time.
In the Jazz Cut sessions, Parker McAllister was on the upright bass, Ben Wareham on saxophones and trumpet, Matt Block on trumpet, Josh Henderson on violin/viola, Mike Birnbaum on drums, and Alita Moses on lead and backup vocals. With a long love of jazz, Moses pulled inspiration from the sounds of her childhood which was filled with the music from every genre from Ella Fitzgerald to Bach, and beyond.
