FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION: Two-Time Grammy nominated composer/trumpeter Russell Gunn for
Jazz Instrumental Album of The Year
“The Sirius Mystery” and
Best Instrumental Composition
“Sirius B (The Unseen Absolute)”
“Russell was one of the pioneers of jazz/hiphop” – Marcus Miller
“This track, Sirius B is bananas!” – Jason Moran
“It’s utterly fantastic! Powerful, Bold!” – Alan Saxon
“This S*** is real AF!” – Mathew Stewart
Russell Gunn’s “The Sirius Mystery” is a progressive, dynamic and compelling four part Russell Gunn master work, genre bending musical odyssey blending Jazz, EDM, American Trap, African Drums, Dub Step and Charlie Parker improvisation in a four movement suite that is inspired by and based on the “mythology” of the Dogon Tribe of Mali. The title of the work takes its name from the best selling book on the subject by author Robert K. Temple and research by French anthropologist Marcel Griaule.
“The Sirius Mystery” seamlessly blends Jazz with EDM, African Drums, Southern Hip Hop, Dogon Astrology, and acutely complex Melodic Motifs. Intensely emotional and angular improvisation crown the “odd rhythm”, “drum chant”, “trap jazz” aggregation of sound and spirit composed by Russell Gunn.
