Elissa Goodrich & Clare Shannon - States Of Play


Album Description

States of Play, whilst brand new, has its roots in the critically acclaimed world-jazz Shannon-Goodrich Ensemble, with original compositions by 2 x APRA jazz work of the year nominated Elissa Goodrich and Clare Shannon.

States of Play’s debut CD is an original jazz project inspired by the emotional states & musical forms attributed to traditional Andalusian (Spanish) music encountered in Elissa’s and Clare’s research & work in Spain and in the crafted interplay between the quartet of performing musicians. Though not directly quoting these well-known forms, much of their music plays with the specific emotional states, modes and rhythms attributed to Andalusian music and Flamenco found within music & dance forms, including the Jota Berber, Paso Doble, Alegrias, Bulerias, and Solea.
