Energetic and melodious free jazz at it’s best! Friends & Neighbors, who took their name from a record by Ornette Coleman, has reached new heights on their fifth album Earth is # from 2021. This is refreshing music, spanning ballads, hard bop and everything in between, with references to artists such as Archie Shepp, Pharoah Sanders, John Carter and Eric Dolphy.

– Friends and Neighbors expressed Ornette’s affection for the people who lived near his Prince Street loft; these guys write and play like they like each other, which results in a chemistry that’s hard to resist. – (Bill Meyer, Dusted Magazine).
