Bobby Selvaggio’s newest recording “Quantum Man” contains some of his most interesting, adventurous playing and writing to date. This session captures Bobby’s sound on the alto at its best and with the addition of strings and voice to the traditional quartet setting Bobby has created music that is colorful, very textural and above all, full of melody.
The music, all original compositions and arrangements show a wide range of styles, including traditional swing, straight-eighth, latin, rock/pop, funk, and drum & bass. This release features his new Transcendental Orchestra project, which is a Jazz Quartet, String Quintet, vocals, and percussion and electronics.
