Instru Dash Mental Records presents “Moments and Fragments” (order on Amazon here), the sophomore LP from music collective #Bloomerangs. The playlist features original music from its members, and includes International Songwriting Competition Jazz category semi-finalist tunes “In Some Shape or Form” and “S Mitchell St”.
Honoring the title of the record; the music takes the listener into a journey of multiple dimensions and moods with Jazz being the transporting vehicle. The moments range from the Free Jazz and odd signature explorations in “Catch a Clue”, to Latin inspired innuendos in “Untold”, and the calming fragments of “Mind your F”.
In harmony with the band’s intentions “Moments and Fragments” includes a diverse collection of sonic landscapes that snapshots the intent to keep pushing the genre’s stylistic lines. Grunge Jazz Etude like piece “Change of Pace” is a clear example of how far the band was willing to go to achieve that goal.
#Bloomerangs guitarist and music director Rodrigo Cotelo led the production of the record in conjunction with drummer & composer Chris Parker.
Apart from Chris Parker on Drums and Rodrigo Cotelo on Guitars, “Moments and Fragments” also features Stefan Lenthe on Bass and Clay Wulbrecht on Piano.
From the Artist: The inspiration of the release comes from working with the musicians that are part of it. At the time, they were all going to school at Jacobs School of Music of Indiana University and I was working in Bloomington when we met and started to hang out. We wanted a historical record of our time together.
