Review: Simon H. Fell

Simon H. Fell
“Composition No. 30”
(Bruce’s Fingers)

This is experimental, new music from Britain. The third release in a series, Fell is here documenting on the double-disc release a middle ground between pure improvisation and notation using good-sized ensembles. In development for 8 years, this opus features the Big Band of The Royal Northern College of Music with featured improvisers from jazz and creative music circles. The result has a jazz-like quality that will appeal to free jazz fans.
