ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
M13 is a Chicago-based, 13-piece ensemble, whose original compositions and arrangements by saxophonist/bandleader Aaron McEvers defy common convention and classification. Jazz may be at its core, but this is no swing band. The amalgamation of styles within their sound is varied and unapologetic.
Original compositions are somewhat programmatic, evoking a sense of storytelling through melody-driven arcs, fresh orchestration and improvisation. This recipe yields a surprisingly accessible sound, appealing to listeners with a variety of musical tastes. At times subtle and delicate, at others wonderfully aggressive, M13’s music and musicianship has set them apart, establishing a style of their own.
"Aaron and his group M13 are pushing the large ensemble repertoire forward and most importantly, showing that great music is being created outside of NYC" -Ben Wendell (Kneebody)
"The Music is fantastc! ...really compelling." -Alan Ferber (L.A. based composer/arranger)
"I really enjoyed every step of the journey — kind of like a fast pass through an art gallery, seeing so much cool stuff, thinking "I wanna go back and check that out again." -Fred Sturm, jazz composer/arranger, author of Changes Over Time: The Evolution of Jazz Arranging, and Director of Jazz & Improvisational Music at the Lawrence University Conservatory of Music.
"I really like your use of guitar. It adds a nice "Darcy James Argue vibe" to your work.. I applaud the direction you are going as well. I believe that we need more of this kind of stuff to engage the public and then perhaps being them on board with jazz in general. Your band can play an important roll in that process in Chicago as the market for our art continues to morph and develop." -Steve Wiest (Composer/Arranger, Director of the One O'Clock Jazz Band at North Texas State Univ.)
