New World Jazz Composers Octet

The music is a kaleidoscope: shifting effortlessly from the intimacy of a piano trio to the shouting horns of a big band. The music conjures a range of feelings, from Jobim's melodic and harmonic warmth, to the spontaneity and excitement of Charles Mingus' groups, to the harmonic pastels of Herbie Hancock's explorations of the late 60's.

Amazing U Presents: Don White's Comedy Workshop
