Practitioners of a boisterous blend of jazz and metal, Daniel Rosenboom’s Burning Ghosts are a true mirror focused on American social inequalities. The frequent comparisons with the rock band Rage Against the Machine have exacerbated the calling and political and vindicatory positioning of a collective which, in recent years, has set the Los Angeles underground scene alight. The urgency of the music, in constant response to the present, can be felt in every second of Reclamation – an album launched in 2017 by John Zorn’s Tzadik. Music with a short fuse on a constant razor’s edge.

Making their London debut, Burning Ghosts is a politically motivated quartet at the forefront of the jazz-metal underground featuring four of the most acclaimed musicians in the LA experimental music scene. Playing scorching instrumentals that touch on heavy metal and jazz, the music is uncompromising and intense, filled with precise rhythmic complexity and textural power. Their 2017 release Reclamation on John Zorn’s Tzadik was an internationally-acclaimed, incendiary blockbuster, and their fiery sound has thrilled audiences in Europe and across the US.

”One of the best bands to emerge from L.A. in years.” –Downtown Music Gallery (NYC)

"The middle ground between Bitches Brew and Bloodlet." —Observer

"Boxes be damned, classifying this as jazz- rock or jazz-metal is a waste of energy. It is simply what it is, which is great music... Marvelous." –Jazz In Europe

"Progressive anger can blast down some ugly walls, and Burning Ghosts' new recording shows how to do it without saying a word (or firing a shot)... This hard-jammin' quartet has jelled. Last year's debut raged with energy, but a span of seasoning and an appropriate alignment with John Zorn's avantist Tzadik label (Naked City, Secret Chiefs 3) have left the Ghosts focused and ready to dominate... Touched with Aylerlike churn and serene Coltranian confidence, "Reclamation" harks back to a time when revolution sprang directly from phonograph grooves into the hearts of millions. If you're wishing for this decade's most potent way of declaring "We're not gonna take it," look no further." —MetalJazz.com

How do you connect jazz, metal, modular synths, and contemporary classical music? Easy. Just show up at Art Share LA on June 6 at 8 PM. Equal Sound’s concert series continues with trumpeter Dan Rosenboom’s Burning Ghosts, a searing activist jazz metal outfit from the LA underground. The ghosts are joined by cellist Ashley Walters performing music by Wadada Leo Smith and Morton Feldman, with an opening set from pianist/composer/synth wizard Philip Rankin’s ØCOASTensemble. This is a show you have to hear to believe.

Burning Ghosts is a politically motivated quartet at the forefront of the jazz-metal underground featuring four of the most acclaimed musicians in the LA experimental music scene. Playing scorching instrumentals that touch on heavy metal and jazz, the music is uncompromising and intense, filled with precise rhythmic complexity and textural power.

Daniel Rosenboom - Bb Trumpet & C Cornet

Aaron McLendon - Drums

Cellist Ashley Walters has been described as performing "with the kind of brilliance that beckons a major new performer on the new music scene" (Mark Swed, L.A. Times). She has been praised for her "imposing talents" (Sequenza 21) and "impressive" (Pitchfork) and "beautiful playing" (All About Jazz). Walters maintains a uniquely diverse career, performing music that blurs the boundaries between classical, avant-garde, and jazz, breaking new ground in repertoire with microtonality, extended techniques, alternative tunings, and improvisation.

ØCOASTensemble combines modular synthesizers and keyboards with acoustic drums and bass into compositions that speaks to the heart and the spectrum of human emotions.
