Keyboardist extraordinaire Jason Miles has worked with everyone from Miles Davis and Luther Vandross to Ivan Lins, and turntable guru DJ Logic has collaborated with such diverse artists as Phish, Vernon Reid, ?uestlove and Don Byron. The timeless innovators join forces with sensuous Indian vocalist Falu as GLOBAL NOIZE and release their sophomore album, A PRAYER FOR THE PLANET on August 23, 2011 via Lightyear/EMI. The album will release June 11, 2011 in Europe on Art of Groove Records/MIG.
A Prayer For The Planet is Global Noize’s declaration on the state of our world in the 21st century. Featuring appearances by Karl Denson, Mocean Worker, Jeff Coffin, Oz Noy, Jay Rodriguez, Mailka Zarra, Lica Cecata and more, Jason Miles, DJ Logic & Faliu have crafted a truly imaginative and compelling album without sacrificing the global groove, melody and innovation that made up the first Global Noize CD.
Bombay, singer Falu (aka Falguni Shah) is widely recognized for a rare ability to seamlessly blend a signature modern inventive rock style with a formidable Indian classically-shaped vocal talent.
In her early years she was trained rigorously in the Jaipur musical tradition, honing her talent for up to 16 hours a day at times. She has performed as a soloist with Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Project and onstage at prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and the White House
GLOBAL NOIZE, which DJ Logic describes as "a hip and eclectic musical journey crossing all boundaries," is an organic, free-spirited sonic brew of some of the best elements of jazz, funk, electronica and world fusion – it is music without borders.
Many great world-class musicians and artists have performed with Global Noize: Fred Wesley, Eric Krasno, Billy Martin, Cyro Baptista, Jeff Coffin, Ian Neville, Bernie Worrell, Me’shell Ndgeocello, Oteil Burbridge, Karl Denson, John Popper, Adam Deitch, George Porter Jr., and Christian Scott to name a few.
The group has performed at a number of venues and festivals from Aspen Jazz and Monterey Jazz Festival to Berks Jazz Festival and New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
Global Noize performed an exemplary set at the Jacksonville Jazz Festival last week and will be at the Belleayre Music Festival on July 30 in Highmount, NY and The Falcon in Marlboro on July 31. More dates will be added shortly along with a full tour in late summer through fall.
released August 23, 2011
"a vibe that's a freewheeling swirl of jazz, funk, electronica, world fusion and blues that's grounded at times, trippy and sensual most of the time, and -- on the wings of the ethereal vocals of Falu
-- truly transcendent and spiritual."
- ALL MUSIC GUIDE
“It’s abundantly clear that the brilliant minds behind Global Noize care little for so-called cultural boundaries, and they make no apologies for it.”
- GLOBAL RHYTHM MAGAZINE
“DJ Logic and Jason Miles haven’t merely epitomized the term, ‘world-music’ with their brainchild Global Noize, but rather redefined what that vague musical classification can encompass.”
“a mind-bending, funky and melodic futuristic look as the world through music… Global Noize offers a musical vision of a world you’d be happy to inhabit.”
