Description

As recorded by the Dick Oatts/Mats Holmquist New York Jazz Orchestra (members of the legendary Vanguard Orchestra) on the album "Tribute to Herbie +1".
This is Mats Holmquist's take on Herbie Hancock's classic, with a minimalist touch. Solos for lead alto and piano, partly in double-tempo. Several interesting tuttis. Original arrangement of a true classic.

”Mats Holmquist is one of the jazz world’s finest composers and arrangers.”
Ric Bang - JazzScan
