Romances

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
The University of Miami Concert Jazz Band premieres an extended work, "Three Romances," by Maria Schneider, on this compilation, which includes recordings by earlier editions of the band. The University of Miami is in the top-tier of jazz education programs in the U.S., having turned out notable alumni including Bobby Watson and Pat Metheny, but the focus of this recording is equally on the band's tight ensembles as well as individual solos. Horace Silver's "Gregory's Here" is not one of his better-known pieces; this arrangement is far smoother with less of a pronounced Latin feeling than the composer's original sextet recording.

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
The University of Miami Concert Jazz Band premieres an extended work, "Three Romances," by Maria Schneider, on this compilation, which includes recordings by earlier editions of the band. The University of Miami is in the top-tier of jazz education programs in the U.S., having turned out notable alumni including Bobby Watson and Pat Metheny, but the focus of this recording is equally on the band's tight ensembles as well as individual solos. Horace Silver's "Gregory's Here" is not one of his better-known pieces; this arrangement is far smoother with less of a pronounced Latin feeling than the composer's original sextet recording. The extended chart of Bronislaw Kaper's "Invitation" showcases trumpeter Rob Smith and tenor saxophonist Todd Del Giudice, who are backed by a colorful blend of brass and reeds. Pianist Clay Perry contributed two originals, including the perky "Squiggle" and the haunting ballad "Divisi." But the main focus is on Schneider's suite, beginning with the seductive, Brazilian-flavored "Choro Dancado." The delicate "Pas de Deux" was inspired by the composer's favorite ballerina, while "Danca Illusoria" is actually a foxtrot cast in a Brazilian setting. This is a fine effort by the University of Miami Concert Jazz Band that is easily recommended.
