Chromaticity - an exploration of musical sound and colour - brings together the talents of saxophonist Julia Nolan, pianist Jane Hayes and violinist Joan Blackman in a recording featuring new and old compositions for both duo and trio combinations. Their first performance together was met with a standing ovation and these musicians have not looked back. The full-bodied sound of the saxophone coupled with the warmth and vibrancy of the violin and tonal and dynamic palette of the piano makes this combination aurally stimulating... the repertoire is fresh and powerful. It runs the gamut from traditional harmony to jazz inspiration, from melodic simplicity to driving rhythm.
