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".
Built on Herbie Hancock's fusion classic Chameleon; Holmquist re-composed it and put it in a minimalist setting a' la Steve Reich. Holmquist changed both chords and melody and put it to a large extent in 5/4 with solos for tenors and guitar. Fun, challenging, interesting and exciting!

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

Instrumentation

Standard Big Band (5/5/4/4)
