Track 7 from Diversion
CD: Ambiances Magnétiques (2003) AM 119

Diversion is the second album from Noma, an ensemble formed and directed by trombonist Tom Walsh. It was recorded live at La Sala Rossa in December 2002 and at the Music Gallery in Toronto in 2000.

Noma is a gigantic laboratory. In the left corner: a guitar, a bass, and a drum set. In the right corner: a guitar, a bass, and a drum set. In the middle of the ring: Walsh, his trombone and his sampler. Noma driving its own hybrid design, brings us on a wild rollercoaster ride down the radio dial of style. Highlighting the group’s superb musicianship with stop-on-a-dime arrangements, Walsh & Company have evolved a repertoire and playing vocabulary unmatched in modern music.

Taken from the best moments of performances in Toronto and Montréal between 2000 and 2002, Diversion provides an opportunity to discover the virtuosity of Noma and its composer and leader Tom Walsh.
