Under One Sun returns to the BOP STOP for a three night residency. This is world music infused jazz at its finest featuring Cleveland's own, Jamey Haddad.

Jamey Haddad met saxophone player Billy Drewes when both were music students in Boston. Nearly 45 years later, the longtime friends have made their first recording together: a collection of nine tunes written by Drewes and performed by Under One Sun, a band representing five countries and whose ages span five decades.

“As my musical journey led me from one continent to another, and as I experienced a planet crying out for understanding, this team of players cosmically came forward,” says Haddad, a longtime professor of advanced improvisation and percussion at Oberlin Conservatory. “The sheer joy of every member experiencing their bandmates’ artistry truly exemplifies the human capacity to celebrate what makes us unique.”

Many musicians attempt to find a common language or palette of colors that create musical neologisms, but it’s an endeavor more easily dreamed of than made real. Under One Sun is an example of the dream come true. The group blends seemingly disparate sounds and flavors into a rhythmic stew that makes a musical feast—music that is visceral and intellectual at once. Changing time signatures with an ease that belies the fact that this is their first studio recording, Under One Sun leaves us satisfied and looking forward to hearing its next incarnation.
