5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz Chamber Music Volume 2 May 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Autumn In Moving Pictures, by the legendary pianist Billy Childs, is the second project featuring his jazz chamber ensemble, the first being Lyric which was released in 2005. This time around, Billy's featured musicians are Carol Robbins (harp), Larry Koonse (guitar), Bob Sheppard (sax, clarinet), Scott Colley (bass), Brian Blade & Antonio Sanchez (drums) and the Ying String Quartet (Timothy, Janet, Phillip and David). Inspired by the stark beauty of the New England autumn countryside, Billy composed music as his mind saw and remembered it, and hoped that his reflections heightened our, the listeners, awareness of what we see and remember. He succeeded. When I listened to The Path Among The Trees, A Man Chasing The Horizon, Raindrop Patterns and The Red Wheelbarrow, I saw pictures and impressions in my mind. In fact, the loneliness of the red wheelbarrow and all that conveyed brought me to tears. Now that's what music should do, but rarely does. The album's three additional tracks, Bill Evans's Waltz For Debby, Prelude In E Minor and the hauntingly beautiful Pavane showcase Mr. Childs' and his fellow musicians' talent and exquisitie musical interpretations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Project! September 26, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Billy always tends to create a great fusion between classical and the jazz realms. I love listening to his new projects, because they always present something new. As a classical musician myself, I find it to be a great album to listen to because I get to hear both languages. Check it out if you're interested...because I know you'd love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves to he heard! July 5, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I heard "Prelude In E Minor" on a streaming jazz station out of Denver recently, and I knew I had to have this.

Fortunately, it can still be purchased as a download from another well-known site (Amazon, are you listening?). The balance of the album exceeded my expectations, many times over.

I agree fully with the earlier two reviewers... this is incredibly moving and organic: some of the most wondrous and beautiful modern music I've ever been lucky enough to encounter.

Perfectionist's Note: There is a rare moment or two where the strings' intonation gets a little off, but it's hard to tell if it's accidental or intentional. Frankly, most listeners would not notice, and the moments are very fleeting for those who do.

This album is going to stay in my rotation for quite some time. Highly, highly recommended.
