Product Description & Reviews
12 songs based on the story of the Black Dahlia Composer, arranger, and tenor saxophonist Bob Belden's 12-part orchestral tribute to Elizabeth Short recalls her as the "Black Dahlia," the dark-haired Hollywood actress who was killed in 1947. In this moving and moody work Belden evokes Miles Davis, Henry Mancini, Chico O'Farrill, and Shorty Rogers. Belden employs an impressive cohort, including trumpeters Tim Hagans and Lew Soloff, tenor saxman Joe Lovano, and pianists Marc Copland and Kevin Hays. In this sprawling score they move from the hyper-speed tempo of "Genesis" and the Sketches of Spain tinges of "Dream World" and "Zanzibar" to the misty Billy Strayhorn-like title track and end with "Elegy," which features a rare tenor sax solo by Belden that recalls the elliptical phrases of Wayne Shorter. With this opus Bob Belden begins this century with inspiration and imagination. --Eugene Holley, Jr.
