Notes & Reviews:

Although it's right there in the name, it's not entirely clear whether composer/leader Kyle Saulnier's Awakening Orchestra is in fact an orchestra, a big band or something entirely and wildly different. Encompassing broad swaths of musical style in both original and recontextualized and re-imagined compositions, the Awakening Orchestra delves deep into traditions from classical to jazz to indie rock on their debut album.

Notes & Reviews:
