Hailing from the red hot desert of Phoenix, AZ, the Jeff Novotny JAZZPRJKT brings us what promises to be a tsunami of interesting and experimental jazz sounds for this 14-minute and some change single/EP titled "Cygnus X-1".
As a longtime Sun Ra fan, I always get excited to see a newer, what-seems-to-be weird-sounding jazz project. People just aren't making weird jazz anymore. It's a shame because nothing goes with 3:32 am insomnia trip quite like weird jazz.
I'm going to wait a few hours until it's quite late out here on the west coast, and then I'm gonna put this in my headphones and give it the listen it deserves at the time that I think will best fit it. I'm gonna report back after the jump.
