Format: Audio CD
What drew me to these jazz band compositions by Michael Mantler, each highlighting a particular solo instrument, was the kind of talent that he had gathered. We have Nick Mason, the legendary drummer of Pink Floyd whose activity since the band's demise has been woefully small. There's Pedro Carneiro, one of the greatest living percussionists in the world of classical and modern-classical music. But the biggest surprise was pianist Majella Stockhausen, who hasn't been heard from since the 1980s premieres of her father Karlheinz Stockhausen's LICHT operas, and who announced that she would no longer perform under the Stockhausen name. Other performers, hitherto unknown to me, are saxophonist Bob Rockwell, trombonist Roswell Rudd, guitarist Bjarne Roupe, and Mantler himself on trumpet.

Now, when it comes to admiring the skills of the soloists, this can be an entertaining disc. Everywhere here is a master of their instrument and display a distinctive, recognizable tone. But I don't know really what to make of the music itself. The orchestral backdrop is the kind of limited, clunky modernism one hears in film scores. We're talking really cheesy stuff. Plus, it's unclear what the role of improvisation here is, as booklet photos show everyone playing from a traditional written score. Ultimately I'd just like to point out to a review written about Mark-Anthony Turnage's Scorched, a similar pairing of jazz soloist and orchestra.
