ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Eleven Eleven Orchestra is a Jazz Fusion trio comprised of Dann Glenn, Baba Elefante, and Ronnie Ciago. Dann's longtime friend, Jazz bass legend Jeff Berlin, makes a very special guest apperance on the opening track, "Duality To Oneness."

True Jazz is completely improvised, while Fusion is a melding of different styles; quite often rock music. 11:11 Orchestra personifies these words to the letter, with seven no-holds-barred performances.

Dann Glenn has spent the past three decades pushing the envelop in terms of artistic expression. His gift for orchestral composition has been rivaled only by his penchant for Jazz Fusion improvisation. Somehow, he has been able to live in both worlds quite comfortably; the consummate Gemini. DG walks the walk, in his quest to use little or no linear thinking when creating his Art. No one really knows what to expect when Dann Glenn plugs in...but for the fact that it will be a superlative performance, of original ideas and jaw-dropping playing.

On the opening track "Duality To Oneness," DG's lifelong friend and legend of the electric bass, Jeff Berlin, turns in what might be his greatest recorded rubato performance. Always breaking new musical ground, Mr. Berlin once again sheds new light, on what it is to experience the fretted electric bass at the highest level.

Also a longtime friend of Dann's, fretless wonder Baba Elefante plays brilliantly while drenching the low end with his eloquent use of time and note choice, and soaring like an eagle with his masterful and passionate solos. Baba's deep commitment to Jazz shines brightly on this record, and he plays like no other.

Renowned drummer Ronnie Ciago met Dann through their common friendships with Baba Elefante, and the late-great Jaco Pastorius, resulting in a wonderful musical alliance of kindred spirits. Ronnie started playing drums at the tender age of five and never looked back. Growing up in New York he had the opportunity to study under Narada Michael Walden, Carmine Appice, Jim Chapin, Peter Haywood and Al Miller. Ronnie's career has put him in the drum chair, for too many artists to mention in full. Some of the greats he has recorded and toured with are Bill Ward (Black Sabbath), Brand X, Mick Taylor (The Rolling Stones), Rickie Lee Jones, Riverdogs, Reeves Gabrels (David Bowie) and Patrick Moraz.

This maiden voyage for the Eleven Eleven Orchestra promises to be the first...of many more yet to come.

Eleven Eleven
Music is a major part of my life, and I cannot imagine life without great music. I play, but not very well. But I listen very well! Eleven Eleven just makes me feel good (and after 11 (yes 11) hours at work today, this is no minor accomplishment). Not really a surprise, as Dann's music always finds a home in my iPod. But when he surrounds himself with other major talent, the result is even better. Open your paypal wallet and drop some coin on this one...you will not be disappointed These are true masters playing amazing stuff. Thanks guys!!!

This has to be some of the finest jazz fusion I've heard in a long while!! When I saw the personnel on this album I HAD to have it. Dann Glenn's guitar playing is on fire, such a unique approach to guitar and so refreshing to hear outlandish phrasing and rhythm playing to die for!! Baba Elefante and Ronnie Ciago create grooves that kill and if that's not enough there is a Glenn / Berlin track! Download it!!

Dann Glenn Does It Again
Once again, Dann Glenn unleashes his creativity with reckless abandon. Whether it be writing novels, composing music, or performing music, nothing Dann does is like anything else, nor is it like the way anyone else does it. All that needs to be said is this is a musical collection of the highest quality performed by musicians of the highest caliber. This is unusual music that demands to be noticed, and it will keep your interest!

Eleven Eleven-
Dann Glenn has been leaving his mark on the universe for some time now. Anything he does, whether it's a novel or a musical project, is steeped in style , grace and class. On this outing, he pays tribute to those musicians that have inspired him by taking the inspiration he has derived from them, and turning it into something completely his own. Trying to describe music and art in words always falls short and seems inadequate. I urge you to check out what Dann and his stellar cast have done on these tracks and see what kind of words and emotions it stirs up in you.
on this stellar musical venture entitled Eleven Eleven Orchestra and see what emotions
