"Molina Soleil & Aju did a brilliant album this past year with Asia Jazz Project"
-Denver Music Board, on Sacred Paths w/ Asia Jazz Project
Asia Jazz Project joined Hip-Hop/Neo-Soul duo Molina Soleil & Aju to release a unique blend of music--experimental jazz musicianship paired with male and female spoken word vocals. Titled Sacred Paths, the 55-minute project explores themes of life rituals and transformation, love and distance, environmental destruction and human spirituality. Asia Fajardo-Wright’s smooth and buoyant sax style tastefully balances the reflective and influential words of Molina & Aju.
The album also features the work of seasoned producer and magician Will Ross--an underground music renegade who has recorded and produced dozens of DIY projects, ranging from Hip-Hop to Rock to Bluegrass and now Jazz. On Sacred Paths, Ross flirts with a variety of production styles, from earthy to industrial, creating a distinct mélange of sounds that constantly teeters between concrete and metaphysical realms.
Rounding out the talent on Sacred Paths are musicians Antwon Owens and Luis Chavez on percussion and Lewis Mitchell Neeff on keys. Sacred Paths was produced and released by Wyoming-based arts collective CHiTT Productions, which has been supporting independent musicians since 2005.
