a new beginning
a new beginning - reflects Noren's desire to share his joy of music, bring together different musical cultures, and create new soundscapes
World, flamenco, fusion—all those terms apply to Noren Schmitt’s performances on A New Beginning.
Noren is a versatile multi-instrumentalist who can play any of a dozen string, percussion and keyboard instruments to get just the flavors he wants for each composition. He’s joined by Kenny Jackson on keys and saxophones and by Schawkie Roth and Dierdra Claiborne on flutes.
The result is a sonic travelogue—Granada, Marbella, Sevilla, Brazil, Côte d’Azure. You can put this album on and let it track. Listen and concentrate, or move about doing this and that. The music will follow you and you’ll be glad it did.
