Music from the Deserts is Santa Fe-based composer, saxophonist, and video artist, Chris Jonas' latest project and album. The project explores music and video created while winter camping in the remote Sonora Desert, including Arizona's Barry Goldwater Missile Range and Trump's Border Wall. The sounds explored contain elements of a jazz-based ensemble, but is working with colors and sounds outside traditional jazz, mixing material that is quirky, delicate, polyphonic, weirdly groovy, disjointed, and melodic. The new album is being accompanied by an international tour featuring different ensembles in Santa Fe, NM, Chicago, IL, San Francisco, CA, and Tuscany, Italy.
