This is excellent "big band" music for jazz and classical instruments. If the social opinion of Blacks and Black jazz composers had not been so low at the time of its release, we would be thinking of James P. Johnson's when we think of Ellington and Gershwin. I am not saying these compositions are as good. I am saying they are excellent.
Classical musicians can now swing and this jazz/classical recording swings.
Mingus once said that big band music should never repeat the same phrasing over and over. Each line should have something slightly new. In these compositions every line has something slightly different from any other line.
When I think of what Johnson could have done if his jazz/classical compositions had been supported I am very sad. When I hear this cd, I am very happy that Marin Alsop and others sought out and resurrected this music. It well worth buying.

Excellent delivery, arriving well before expected date. A great CD which shows just what JP Johnson could do beyond the stride piano for which most people remember him. Well done Marin Alsop for championing this partially forgotten jazz-man's work. Worth buying for the great opening track alone. JM

What a find! Thanks to the family. And thanks again to conductor Alsop for her tireless efforts to bring the joy of American concert music of all genres to the public!
