Walk All Ways

Daniel Barry

Daniel Barry, “Walk All Ways” OA2 22039 “. . . superbly crafted charts . . .fresh, imaginative approach.”

JazzTimes

Sculpting a new acoustic sound that defies categorization while voicing universal sonorities, Daniel Barry creates a fluid blend of chamber music and improvised shapes for the 21st century. Walk All Ways interweaves Western Classical music traditions with the sensuous rhythmic vitality of the Caribbean and South America, adding the spirit of free-blowing jazz to create a distinct, original all-encompassing world vision expressed through the pure language of sound. "...saucy . . . exuberant stuff. . . even recalls the madcap satire of Zappa in places". -Cadence

Music of the Spheres

Music of the Spheres

Daniel Barry

Recorded live inside an abandoned cistern on the grounds of Fort Warden in Port Townsend, WA, composer, director, and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Barry uses the cistern's otherworldly acoustic properties to propel his music beyond our normal perceptions of time and space. All four instrumental families (brass, woodwind, string, and percussion) are represented along with the human voice, providing a colorful spectrum of soundscapes that aspire to transport the listener to faraway realms.

The Music of Daniel Barry

the Jazz Police: The Music of Daniel Barry

Daniel Barry

"In the everyday world, the function of the police is to uphold and enforce laws. However, on this CD, this Police force is out to defy and break the conventions set by a fossilized and pigeon- holed market, one that tries to contain something as free and immaterial as music into pre- established neat little bins of styles and labels. If you like your jazz varied and multi-flavored, this one is for you. From the lullaby of "Sleep Baby Sleep" to the uptempo whirlwind of "Black Bean Boss," here is a wide spectrum of colors, creating an aural rainbow of moods. Daniel Barry is a great composer, and he knows how to speak the language of the big band as an arranger, avoiding easy clichÈs and focusing on the untouched possibilities of the ensemble.

Congratulations to Daniel and the Jazz Police for a work rich in every aspect - melodic, harmonic and rhythmic. Great music!"
