"Symbiosis" - Ogerman's potent melding of contemporary classical and jazz with NY Philharmonic players, top jazz musicians, and the Bill Evans Trio. Classic Evans in an unusual setting.
Bill Evans was the leader of one of most influential trios in jazz history, and invaluable contributor to the model explorations on Miles Davis' Kind of Blue. Miles said it best: "Bill had this quiet fire that I loved on piano. The way he approached it, the sound he got was like crystal notes or sparkling water cascading down from some clear waterfall." Claus Ogerman is one of the most prolific 20th century arranger-composers, at home in every style (rock, pop, jazz, classical).
