Overview: Blurring the lines between fusion, contemporary jazz and chamber music, Metaphor was born out of a desire to reflect the present day. In a world where the music media has split everything into cut and dry categories, we refuse to be confined to a certain style or genre of music. "Temporary Suspension", Metaphor's debut album, features a myriad of musical offerings including african music, hip-hop, afro-cuban, straight-ahead and rock.
Formed in the fall of 2005, Metaphor began with a very specific sound world and concept in mind: a contemporary jazz instrumentation with a focus on melody and lyricism. Rather than performing pieces that are merely vehicles for improvisation, the emphasis is on the compositions themselves. Special attention is given to every detail of the music: pacing, dynamics, contrast and narrative. This presentation helps to create an environment in which there are no barriers between artist and audience. Artist Site
