Notes & Reviews:

This debut album contains two world premiere recordings. The first, "Danza del Soul" for mixed sextet, is by Chris Brubeck. Chris bears one of the most distinguished names in American music as the son/collaborator of jazz musician and composer Dave Brubeck. This piece is quite theatrical and jazz-inspired; it is "soul music that goes dancing" according to Boston music critic Steven Ledbetter. The second world premiere recording is "Line Drawings" in five movements by Michael Gandolfi. He notes: "None of my pieces is tethered to a precise Picasso drawing, but they are written in the spirit of the Picasso works: concise, clear, written with a sense of immediacy and sureness of stroke, light and airy." Both pieces were performed to great acclaim at the Tanglewood Festival in August 2010.
