NEGATIVE PRESS PROJECT
'ETERNAL LIFE | JEFF BUCKLEY SONGS AND SOUNDS'
a (scalable) seven-piece jazz/indie-art rock–inspired original music collective from Oakland, California.
“open to all possibilities...melodious frameworks for instrumental improvisation within a focused ensemble setting. It’s jazz, it’s chamber music and it often involves the dynamic energy of rock.”
“a nice balance between [ ] song structure, and the desire of the ensemble to roam free and explore...people will, in fact, find plenty to like.”
-Bird is the Worm
“sumptuously detailed instrumental arrangements. Reverent but unintimidated, their sound is a seamless blend of chamber jazz, rock and instrumental pop.”
“lush ... weaving and soaring … lovely music ... a heartfelt and sensitive tribute... dreamlike art.”
-All About Jazz
“Instrumental arrangements that evoke [ ] spirit and vibe”
-San Francisco Chronicle
"This set gives [ ] seekers the more they seek. [ ] sounds that you wouldn't think could be found to be so possessive by certain sections of the masses, a whole lot of new jazz fans are going to be minted..."
"Versatility abounds, and they always look for new ground to explore.”
-The Bay Bridged
“They give hope for the future of creative music.”
