The Capital Jazz Project and The Street Theatre present:

The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926) is a silent silhouette animation by Lotte Reineger, considered by many to be the first feature-length animated film.Combining electronic and acoustic instruments, the score will be structured around a pre-recorded score of sampled percussion. Against this, a live band will play, consisting of two electric keyboards, soprano saxophone, & trombone. The music will be through-composed, seasoned with elements of improvisation, and invoke elements of jazz, minimalism and classical music.

John Shand called it an "exceptional work that deserves many airings."

Phillip Johnston: soprano saxophone
James Greening: trombone
Alister Spence: keyboards
Casey Golden: keyboards

A combination of brand new work by Joel Forrester and Phillip Johnston, re-imagined early Micros tunes, and a couple of classics, the CD is part of Cuneiform Records' 30th Anniversary releases for May/June 2014

"Those who wonder if The Microscopic Septet still "got it" can stop worrying-and rejoice!" Clouds and Clocks
