Cosmo With Jesse Harris
The Egremont Village Inn
17 Main St, South Egremont, MA 01258, USA
Cosmo is Jesse Harris’ first full length instrumental album, but it is not his first time recording instrumental music. Two of Jesse’s previous albums, Watching The Sky and Mineral, contain two instrumentals each, and Harris also composed the score for the 2007 Ethan Hawke film, The Hottest State. “Making an album of all instrumentals is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, but I never felt I had the proper scenario to justify it, until this past Fall of ’09 when John Zorn coincidentally invited me to make an album for Tzadik. That gave me the push I needed.” Half of the album’s 12 tracks are new instrumental compositions and half are versions of previously recorded Harris songs. “I wanted the sound to be warm and mellow, with brass and organ, and of course I had to have Kenny Wollesen, my old friend, behind the drum kit and on vibes and marimba.” Other guests on Cosmo include Rob Burger, CJ Camerieri, Eivind Opsvik, Tony Scherr, and Doug Wieselman.
Blending folk, soul, Brazilian and rock music, Cosmo is instrumental pop in the classic tradition of Burt Bacharach… with Harris’ indelible stamp
