ANCIENT STAR, the debut album from cellist, composer, & vocalist Jody Redhage and her ensemble Fire in July, is a collection of 14 of Redhage’s original art songs. Produced by Ben Wittman and featuring an ensemble of voice, cello, clarinets, trombones, vibraphone, piano, and percussion, “Ancient Star” reflects the 21st century trend of straddling genres, melding the detail and finesse of chamber music with the energy and drive of pop, rock, and jazz improvisation. On “Ancient Star” Redhage proves she has found her perfect collaborators: her ensemble is a group of multi-skilled, talented and sensitive chamber musicians who can also shedd with the best.
