Product Description & Reviews

Musical hybrids are always a dicey venture, running the risk of the whole's being less than the sum of the parts. Discussing the incorporation of jazz in classical music (or vice versa) can involve a quagmire of definitions. Instead, it is best to judge the works individually on their musical merits. All those represented here succeed to a greater or lesser degree. This disc opens with Gershwin's Manhattan anthem, Rhapsody in Blue, among the first to mix the two genres and yet to be bettered for seamlessness. Conductor Bernstein's love and understanding of the jazz idiom imbues works by Milhaud (La Création du monde) and Copland ("Burlesque" from Music for the Theatre [sic]) with the requisite swing to make their jazz influences ring true. But it is composer Bernstein (Prelude, Fugue, and Riffs for Solo Clarinet and Jazz Ensemble, West Side Story) who blends the two genres into a brew that is less noble experiment and more ecstatic experience. Recommended. --Michael Ross

mpn: 724354240621, ean: 0724354240621,
Combining Cannonball Adderley's bluesy tone and John Coltrane's passion, alto and soprano saxophonist Stefano di Battista is one of the brightest European jazzmen to emerge from the continent in recent years. He worked with Michel Petrucciani and Elvin Jones and released A Prima Vista, his U.S. debut, on the Blue Note label. On this CD, backed by a quartet, he delivers an impassioned musical tribute to his hometown, Rome. Augmented by the brilliant string arrangements of Vince Mendoza, these

The Turtle Island String Quartet has always been known for stretching stylistic and instrumental limits. Despite several personnel changes, its adventurous spirit of exploration is intact, and the baritone violin, that extraordinary hybrid instrument introduced by Darol Anger, is now being played by David Balakrishnan. The program on this disc has a Latin American orientation, with influences of Cuba, Brazil, Mexico, and the Caribbean, as well as African rhythms and American jazz. The pieces
