O’s Notes: Composer, guitarist, bassist Joshua Stamper crosses a wide range of genres spanning classical music, alternative rock, traditional & jazz formats. He teams up with Paul Arbogast (tb), Bethany Danel Brooks (p, accordion), Mike Cemprola (fl, sax, cl), Christopher McDonald (Rhodes, p) and Matt Scarano (d). The music on Soma Schema is a modern jazz with a symphonic feel, much like a cinema score, Stamper invokes moods and marries them with musical textures. “…the music is inspired by Olivier Messiaen’s time-stretching processes, chopped-and-screwed remix techniques, and the harmonic worlds of Bill Evans, Joaquín Rodrigo, and Wayne Shorter…”
