Standards: Our Way

by Central Virginia Jazz Orchestra

We wanted to create an album containing great arrangements of popular old standards, mostly of songs written in the 1920's thru the 1940's. Several of these tunes feature our vocalists; many of the others showcase our instrumentalists and great ensemble!

Album Notes
This album was a result of a local newspaper editorial in the spring of 2013, praising the CVJO for its exciting performance. A local jazz lover and entrepreneur heard the album and offered to underwrite our next CD. The result was "Standards - Our Way," released on September 1, 2014.

This album displays the band at its best yet, with tight ensemble playing and exciting, expressive soloing. The following review appeared in the Richmond, VA, Times-Dispatch on September 1, 2014:

"The ensemble (CVJO) with ranks among the region's premier performing arts groups, has released a new CD. The title, "Standards - Our Way," describes the content. The tracks summon sensations that of all music forms jazz most ably imparts. A rundown of the tunes alerts listeners of the pleasures to come: "Fascinating Rhythm," "Falling in Love with Love," "Sweet Georgia Brown," "Stormy Weather" and similarly seductive others. The orchestra's players do justice to the composition of the genre's greats.

Jazz evokes memories. Numbers heard for the first time return fans to midnights long ago. Jazz is the musical equivalent of genuine deja vu. The recording enjoyed the backing of W. E. Singleton, the benefactor not only of Virginia Commonwealth University's jazz program but also of jazz generally. He shares his passion.

We love this CD. As soon as it ends, we hit the replay button."
