about

New Works is the very ambitious double album follow-up to the first Baker's Brew record, New Colors . The first album of this new record features the group creating spontaneous jazz compositions as they had done with the first record, but the second album puts the group into very new territory by performing in conjunction with surroundsound electronic compositions.

Live performances with these 4 channel electronic scores have been a very striking experience for audiences, and the group has used the best mixing techniques available to them to simulate that experience with this record. Playing this record on a large sound system is recommended as the best way to put the listener inside the sound field created by these works.

the group
Baker's Brew is a Los Angeles based experimental jazz group that comes out of the vast experience of veteran drummer Maury Baker. The group represents his long-standing ambition to combine all of his diverse experiences through total improvisation to create compositions on the spot. Baker’s Brew also includes guitarist Daniel Coffeng, Jim Goetsch on soprano sax and electronics, and Carl Royce on upright bass & electronics. The group utilizes surround sound electronic scores as part of their performances to give their audiences a truly unique experience. More info on the group at bakersbrewband.net

the release
Album I (tracks 1-7) – new jazz works / The first CD in the release features spontaneous jazz compositions from the group. While the group’s work ranges anywhere from ambient jazz to avant garde, this particular collection emphasizes a spacious sound in the tradition of Miles Davis’ “Kind Of Blue” and the ECM label.
Album II (tracks 8-15) – new electronic works / The second CD features the group improvising in conjunction with surround sound electronic scores created by group member Jim Goetsch. These works can best be appreciated on a large sound system in order for the listener to be inside the large sound field.
