Allegresse

by Maria Schneider
 
Similar in nature to the lush, orchestral jazz work of J.J. Johnson and Gil Evans, Schneider here conducts a large group in a suite of detailed and neo-classical pieces. By turns sentimental ("Nocturne") and carefree ("Hang Gliding"), it is a largely satisfying effort.

Editorial Reviews

Entertainment Weekly - Josef Woodard
On this latest collection of her regular, beautifully calibrated ensemble, she again displays her signature sophistication in the writing, savors sensuous textures, and shows an abiding, probing intelligence.
Downbeat - John McDonough
A dreamy but highly evocative collection.
