Notes and Editorial Reviews

What comes after "fusion?" The brewing process maybe. Sean Noonan's New York includes West African, Irish, and Armenian friends, musicians and storytellers. It is no wonder that his music is equally steeped in global flavor.

Brewed by Noon is a fermentation of wandering folk music from the New York progressive jazz scene. Sean Noonan's goal is to adapt folklore into a modern jazz context, merging storytelling and folk music from the Bardic and Griot traditions. Like old wine in new bottles, his mission is to ultimately understand and preserve these ancient traditions by re-interpreting folklore from a modern perspective.

Brewed by Noon is a global village band comprised of Thierno Camara (bass/vocals,)

Innova's Being Brewed by Noon is a live CD with DVD. The audio disc includes live performances from Brewed by Noon's spring 2007 tour in New York and throughout Europe. The bonus DVD features a full documentary and extra live music video footage of Brewed by Noon's performances on the New York underground scene. Beginning in 2003, filmmaker Tom Asma compiled footage of Sean Noonan's various projects, demonstrating how he organizes, produces, composes, and rehearses his one-of-a-kind ensemble.
