about

"Keyboard meditations seemingly composed of crystallized stardust..imagine if Miles Davis' In A Silent Way were dissolved into its molecular ingredients -Herbie Hancock's luminous tones distilled into a lavender vapor" - Dave Segal

Over the last several years, Noel Brass Jr. has been one of Seattle's most soulful and adventurous keyboardists. Tirelessly exploring subtle variations on the music of the spheres, forever striving to express the sound of a love supreme. Both in the psychedelic soul jazz unit Afrocop and as a solo performer, Brass reveals the inprovisational mastery of a musician attuned to a profound celestial wavelength. You can hear this rarefied skill all over his debut album, Broken Cloud Orchestra.

A curation period of over two years yielded amazing results. While the masters for this album sounded gorgeous upon completion, the first run of vinyl test-presses, were promptly denied. Fast forward to getting stepped on by a manufacturing behemoth and endlessly searching for the albums perfect visual accompaniment-this project was the most difficult Wax Thematique encountered thus far. And yet, here we are and now Noel's first proper solo album gets presented to the world.
