Description

As recorded by Mats Holmquist, Randy Brecker, Dick Oatts and Latvian Radio Big Band on the album "Big Band Minimalism" (Summit/MAMA Records 2017).
This piece is very likely one of the most original and challenging pieces ever written for big band. It is based on the idea of the minmimalist master piece A short Ride in a Fast Machine by John Adams. Starts off with a canonic riff mainly in the five clarinets. An interesting fast theme in three part canon. Fast, unusual and challenging minimalist sax soli. Solos for trumpet 5 and alto 2. Short tutti near end and an inventive and fun ending in the horns using fast eighth notes. If you want fun and exciting music and a great challenge, this is the piece!
”Mats Holmquist is one of the jazz world’s finest composers and arrangers."
Ric Bang, JazzScan
