Album sleeve notes available from wp.me/p3b6I0-dT

“Ornette D Clennon’s atmospheric and dissonant score live on stage, this is easily the highlight of the evening” (The Listeners)

The Stage

“…in The Listeners, Clennon’s score is variously melodic, but distraught; airs slide and are stretched with jazzy inflections or bursts of dissonance…”

The Herald

“’What has happened to all that Beauty’ took everyone’s breath away…Teaming soprano with four strings was sanctified in Schoenberg’s Second Quartet. It can rarely have been so vividly deployed since”

Spectrum (The Scotsman)

“…Hidden Song by Ornette Clennon …imaginative and beautifully prepared”

The Scotsman
