Bill Noertker and his psychedelic avant-chamber jazz ensemble, Noertker’s Moxie, are back with a three-part suite, Tricycle.


In this third installment, Leonora, Noertker recounts a mythical exploration of his past as inspired by a journey to Mexico City and an encounter with the work of Leonora Carrington.  From the oscillating calliope of Metro Cosmos to the iridescent birdsong and plaintive cry of Beneath the Sinking Cathedral to the arcane processional of Avenue of the Dead, Noertker and his stalwart companions engage us with their playful, emotive, and intimate musical conversations.

 

In 2001, Bill Noertker formed Noertker’s Moxie as a vehicle for his thematic compositions. Since then he has composed over 200 pieces of music and has released thirteen CDs on the Edgetone Records label, including the soundtrack for Curious Worlds: the Art and Imagination of David Beck and the extended suites Sketches of Catalonia; The Blue Rider; and The Druidh.
