VISIONS OF NAR
Jeremy Rose, composer/saxophones
Zela Margossian, composer/piano
Visions of Nar brings together two of the most progressive new voices in Australian jazz today, pianist Zela Margossian and saxophonist Jeremy Rose.
A kaleidoscopic ride through folk tunes, jazz and fresh compositions with a nod to the fiery Armenian goddess of water, sea and rain, Nar; this musical journey sends a message of hope and celebration of new beginnings. Perfect as the world slowly awakens after a long, lonely winter.
Jeremy Rose has been described as “one of the most creative and restless musicians in the Australian jazz scene” (Australianjazz.net). His career spans a dozen original releases with collaborative and solo projects across the world including The Earshift Orchestra, the Jeremy Rose Quartet and The Vampires. Born in Beirut, of Armenian heritage, Zela Margossian is a pianist and composer who blends her cultural influences organically into her music, a beguiling fusion of folk, jazz and classical, carrying influences from traditional Armenian music, which she performs with her band, Zela Margossian Quintet.
The duo perform works supported by the ABC Fresh Start fund, for 25 new compositions in these challenging times of COVID-19 and due for recording and release in 2021. Read more about the project here: https://www.australianmusiccentre.com.au/article/visions-of-nar-hymns-of-new-hope
