about

The title of the album, Alien of Extraordinary Abilities, comes from the category of non-immigrant visa Georgi Petrov held for the past 5 years while living in New Orleans. The album features all original music by Georgi, influenced by longstanding musical relationships with the three other musicians in his group. The music reflects Georgi’s eclectic tastes and his Bulgarian background, most prominently on the title track-odd time signatures from Bulgarian traditional dances and Turkish makam tonal groupings. Compositionally, Georgi is a strong believer in the idea of freedom in forms, and his penchant for classical harmonic sensibility shapes the overall tonal colors of the album. Georgi pays homage to a couple of his jazz heroes- Lennie Tristano and Charlie Parker- on the tracks “Coming to Terms” and “CCP”. His admiration for artists like the Bad Plus and Bill Frisell is reflected in “The Month of May” and “I am Not Alright” which prominently showcase the abilities of his bandmates to express the sentiments of the music sonically and rhythmically. Georgi is no stranger to the more electric, highly effected guitar sounds which are sporadically featured throughout the album without hindering the musical content.

Like having pancakes and bacon for dinner, this music may be a bit out of the mainstream, but it sure is good. ... more
