Scott Healy with the Eastman Chamber Jazz Orchestra
Live at Kilbourn Hall
“…terrific large ensemble work led by composer and pianist Scott Healy. A mix of originals and covers (“Anthropology,” “Solitude,” “In Your Own Sweet Way”), with the transitions between the two groups sounding fluid and cohesive. Some nice soloing by members of the Eastman Chamber Jazz Orchestra, but it’s the best moments are those of group interplay when the energy of a song seems close to ripping its form apart just to have it all coalesce back into its original shape. -Dave Sumner, WonderingSound.com
A pristine, intense live recording of new music, previously unrecorded works, and two numbers from Scott’s Grammy-nominated 2012 release Hudson City Suite – it’s an “instant” record – one take, no fixes – just mix, master, release..maybe repeat…
