After recent commissions from the opera companies of Los Angeles, St. Louis and Seattle, composer & pianist Jack Perla decided here to step out in an entirely different direction, gathering top Bay-area and NY jazz, R&B, and indie-rock musicians to perform 14 of his modern, genre-bending songs, expressing the many life changes of his past few years. Beginning in New York with his group Music Without Walls, with violinist Mark Feldman and woodwindist Marty Ehrlich, and later in his present home-base of San Francisco, Perla has steadily forged a reputation for his cross-fertilization of jazz and classical music. His operas and instrumental compositions have been widely performed, and he's toured the U.S., Europe and Japan performing jazz and world music. •"...a composer of great vision." - East Bay Express.
