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.
