Editorial Reviews

Review

Dizzy Gillespie was actually the first major jazz artist to record with strings back in the mid '40s (before Parker). That fact is little-known because the commercial release of the project was held up by the Jerome Kern estate for more than 30 years. (It was deemed too radical a departure.) In the meantime, Gillespie did record a strings album that was released in 1950, a year after Bird's classic. His original strings recordings didn't surface until the '80s. Considering Gillespie's affection for strings, it's no coincidence that he hired a young Lalo Schifrin to join his band as pianist/arranger and immediately asked him to "write something" for his new boss. The result was "Gillespiana," a suite of five movements that Dizzy would perform live around the world for years to come. Schifrin's successful film and TV soundtracks have largely overshadowed a career that ranged from traditional- to contemporary-jazz settings, much of which involved strings. Recently, Schifrin conducted the London Symphony Orchestra for an album called Metamorphosis, the fourth release in his Grammy-winning "Jazz Meets the Symphony" series, with jazz soloists Ray Brown on bass, James Morrison on trumpet and flugelhorn, and himself on piano. Brown is featured on the Schifrin original "Invisible City." It's worth noting that he was also the featured bassist on Charlie Parker Wth Strings, some half-century earlier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable! August 12, 1998
Format:Audio CD
Lalo Shifrin is amazing! To have know him when he played piano for Dizzy and later when he scored the music for an animated feature film I marketed, allowed me to the chance to recognize the versatily of this unique artist. This album is one of the few I have heard that successfuly melds jazz into a classical venue. Not only does Lalo play brilliant jazz piano (a la Previn or Legrand), he has assembled exemplary sidemen especially the brilliant Australian cornetist/trumpeter James Morrison whose range and warmth is immediatley ear-catching. And of course superb playing is expected of (and given) by Ray Brown on bass and Jeff Hamilton on drums. Give this CD all the stars in the galaxy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning June 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If Andre Previn wrote and perfrmed a film score for a Hitchcock film, this would be it. Using a Jazz combo as core, the strings, woodwinds and brass sound impeccible and have a perfect mix. The song arrabgements are superb. I was simply blown away withthis recording, the 3rd in th series I have bought. I love Lalo's music, and have listened to him evolve over the years. This is emotional & dramatic music. If you enjoy straight ahead Jazz enveloped in a large orchestra with semi-Classical undertones, you will get off on this recording. I know I did.
