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).
If minimalist Steve Reich would have written a Basie style chart is this the way it would have sounded? The piece builds and builds from a short, simple motive/riff. Lots of humour and extensive solos for ten 1 and guitar with plenty of exciting and inventive backgrounds. At the end the piece reverses and gets softer and softer to a quiet close.
”Mats Holmquist is one of the jazz world’s finest composers and arrangers."
Ric Bang, JazzScan

Instrumentation

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