Global Noize - "A Prayer For The Planet" EPK (2011)

Press Release :
Keyboardist extraordinaire Jason Miles has worked with everyone from Miles Davis and Luther Vandross to Ivan Lins, and turntable guru DJ Logic has collaborated with such diverse artists as Phish, Vernon Reid, ?uestlove and Don Byron. The timeless innovators join forces with sensuous Indian vocalist Falu as GLOBAL NOIZE and release their sophomore album, A PRAYER FOR THE PLANET on August 23, 2011 via Lightyear/EMI. The album will release June 11, 2011 in Europe on Art of Groove Records/MIG.

A Prayer For The Planet is Global Noize's declaration on the state of our world in the 21st century. Featuring appearances by Karl Denson, Mocean Worker, Jeff Coffin, Oz Noy, Jay Rodriguez, Mailka Zarra, Lica Cecata and more, Jason Miles, DJ Logic & Faliu have crafted a truly imaginative and compelling album without sacrificing the global groove, melody and innovation that made up the first Global Noize CD.

Bombay, singer Falu (aka Falguni Shah) is widely recognized for a rare ability to seamlessly blend a signature modern inventive rock style with a formidable Indian classically-shaped vocal talent.

In her early years she was trained rigorously in the Jaipur musical tradition, honing her talent for up to 16 hours a day at times. She has performed as a soloist with Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Project and onstage at prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and the White House

GLOBAL NOIZE, which DJ Logic describes as "a hip and eclectic musical journey crossing all boundaries," is an organic, free-spirited sonic brew of some of the best elements of jazz, funk, electronica and world fusion – it is music without borders.

Many great world-class musicians and artists have performed with Global Noize: Fred Wesley, Eric Krasno, Billy Martin, Cyro Baptista, Jeff Coffin, Ian Neville, Bernie Worrell, Me'shell Ndgeocello, Oteil Burbridge, Karl Denson, John Popper, Adam Deitch, George Porter Jr., and Christian Scott to name a few.

The group has performed at a number of venues and festivals from Aspen Jazz and Monterey Jazz Festival to Berks Jazz Festival and New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

Global Noize performed an exemplary set at the Jacksonville Jazz Festival last week and will be at the Belleayre Music Festival on July 30 in Highmount, NY and The Falcon in Marlboro on July 31. More dates will be added shortly along with a full tour in late summer through fall.

"a vibe that's a freewheeling swirl of jazz, funk, electronica, world fusion and blues that's grounded at times, trippy and sensual most of the time, and -- on the wings of the ethereal vocals of Falu -- truly transcendent and spiritual." - ALL MUSIC GUIDE

"It's abundantly clear that the brilliant minds behind Global Noize care little for so-called cultural boundaries, and they make no apologies for it." - GLOBAL RHYTHM MAGAZINE

"Innovative, genre-crunching" - BILLBOARD

"DJ Logic and Jason Miles haven't merely epitomized the term, ‘world-music' with their brainchild Global Noize, but rather redefined what that vague musical classification can encompass." - JAMBASE

"a mind-bending, funky and melodic futuristic look as the world through music… Global Noize offers a musical vision of a world you'd be happy to inhabit." - JAZZTIMES

Biography :
Keyboardist extraordinaire Jason Miles, who has worked with everyone from Miles Davis and Luther Vandross to Ivan Lins, and turntable guru DJ Logic, who has collaborated with such diverse artists as Phish, Vernon Reid, ?uestlove and Don Byron, join forces on Global Noize, to create free-wheeling tracks that take listeners on a wide-ranging journey on their first CD, with innovative guests such as Me'Shell NdegéOcello, Billy Martin (Medeski, Marin & Wood), Vernon Reid (Living Color), John Popper (Blues Traveler), Cyro Baptista, Karl Denson and Christian Scott.

Global Noize is a project that has long been brewing in Miles' mind but the idea was solidified when he got a call from his friend DJ Logic to join him for a performance at the Blue Note in NY. "On that day I had a horrible root canal and was mourning the loss of a close relative. I thought that this could be just the tonic I needed to pick myself up," recalls Miles. The night was exactly what Miles had hoped and from this experience he knew that he and Logic had a special connection. The duo later worked together in Morocco at The Casablanca Jazz Festival and had the opportunity to venture off to Marrakech. Miles shares, "We went through life-altering experiences. It was so new to us - mysterious, crazy and another view of the world. We both knew we had to make this project happen. The picture on the CD over of the both of us with the camel in the desert says it all!"

Global Noize, which DJ Logic describes as "a hip and eclectic musical journey crossing all boundaries," is an organic, free-spirited sonic brew of some of the best elements of jazz, funk, electronica and world fusion – it is music without borders. Miles says, "We started with Cyro Baptista and Billy Martin jamming in the studio and built up the tracks from there. Logic and I pooled our musical resources and had some of the best cutting-edge artists play on the record." From the album's opening track, "A Jam 4 Joe" (dedicated to the late piano/keyboard wizard Joe Zawinul) to its concluding statements on "What I Know," Global Noize takes listeners on a mind-bending, global adventure featuring all original compositions.

In 2011, Global Noize will have a new album release. It's called A Prayer For The Planet. It reflects the feeling the group has on the state of our planet in the 21st century. It features some of the great cutting edge artists of our time and further explores the Global Groove that was created on the first Global Noize album. From Falu's sensuous vocals on the title track and her amazing control of her voice on "Charismalove" and "Wanna B With You" to the fantastic performances of Karl Denson, Jeff Coffin, Oz Noy, Mocean Worker, Mailka Zarra, Lica Cecata and others, this is a true album for the 21st century. Jason Miles and DJ Logic have crafted a truly imaginative and compelling album without sacrificing the groove, melody and innovation that was brought to the first Global Noize CD. It is accompanied by an amazing image - (see poster in the Photos section).

A Prayer For The Planet will be released in Europe in late April on BHM/Art of Groove records, followed by a release in the United States and other countries.

The Group now has Indian vocal diva Falu as a full-time member. Many great world-class musicians and artists have performed with Global Noize. Fred Wesley, Eric Krasno, Billy Martin, Cyro Baptista, Jeff Coffin, Ian Neville, Oteil Burbridge, Karl Denson, Adam Deitch, George Porter Jr., and Christian Scott are just a few. The group has played in many great venues and festivals—Aspen Jazz, Monterey Jazz Festival, Berks Jazz Festival, and Jazz Fest New Orleans, to name just a few. Global Noize makes it easy for artists and musicians from wherever they perform to participate in their performance. It is one of the goals of the group to perform in countries all over the world and have local and national artists perform with them as special guests.
