Semi-big-band sounds with some modern classical tweaks. There's a '60s-TV retro sound to some of the full-ensemble passages, and traces of modern classical ideas in the writing.|
Tracks 3-5 are based on bits of Miles Davis' "Birth of the Cool" and carry a more retro, symphonic sound (Gunther Schuller arrangements). The other tracks are closer to modern straight jazz, with the occasional strange touch in the composing (1,11) .
1- Ah, strange classically-influenced lines. Moves into straight bebop-combo stuff for the solos.
2- Mid/slow feel, relaxing swing
3- Swaying and graceful, pretty.
4- Slow symphonic intro, then a jumping swingy piece
5- Cooled-down swing, pleasant and straightforward
6- Burly, bluesy tenor sax, midtempo. Mood gets happier.
7- Perky mid/fast. Complicated, staggery intro. A couple of free-madness moments.
8- Relaxed mid/fast, a casual sound. Clarinet lead.
9- Mid/fast straight swing, some fun loose soloing
10- Fast but kept at a low-flying buzz; some cool solos
11- Midtempo dissonant swing, almost like patterns of speech
