Format: Audio CD
Can I please have some more stars to award to this album? Orchestra + inspired arrangements + the genius of Eddie Daniels = a fabulous musical experience.
The transitions between the classical and jazz idioms in each selection are smooth, and as usual, Eddie makes it sound easy - one of the marks of a true virtuoso. The opening track, "Solfeggietto/Metamorphosis," sets the tone for the whole album, and Eddie's technical execution is mind-blowing for anyone familiar with clarinet playing. The next four tracks have the string orchestra setting a beautiful backdrop for Eddie's inventive solos. For some of Eddie's best slow, sultry playing, check out "Siciliano" and "Aja's Theme." The closing three tracks constitute the impressive, modern-sounding "Concerto for Jazz Clarinet and Orchestra," which adds brass to the string orchestra heard on the previous tracks.
This 1986 album has become hard to get, and as I write this, Amazon is showing just one CD copy available from an alternate vendor at the ridiculous price of $54.95. This album is a landmark of jazz-classical fusion and a must for fans of Eddie Daniels (or clarinet in general), so I hope we see this reissued soon at an affordable price.

Eddie Daniels es uno de los más grandes clarinetistas de nuestros tiempos. Músico reconocido en todo el mundo por su gran flexibilidad interpretativa en el lenguaje clásico y del jazz. En esta producción ambiciosa, Daniel da muestra de su maravilloso talento y virtuosismo a lo largo de los seis temas del cd. Sobretodo en el Solfeggietto, el derroche de virtuosismo es simplemente espectacular.
Los arreglistas Jorge Calandrelli, Nan Schuartz y Torrie Zito nos hacen fantasear con el acompañamiento de la Philharmonia Orchestra nada menos.
Es muy resaltante apreciar el interesantísimo Concerto for Jazz Clarinet y Orchestra de Calandrelli que se impone como uno de los más bellos conciertos modernos escritos para este instrumento. Maravillosa composición y orquestación.
Es un cd simplemente hermoso, de un alto nivel interpretativo.
