ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“The composition Cuban Voyage demonstrates a deep knowledge of Cuban music and culture. Blending the rhythms and musical motifs of Cuba in a fresh and new way, the work enriches the repertoire for saxophone quartet. The piece possesses a musicality and a Cuban sense of style on level with the works of the finest composers of the island.”
Jorge Luis Almeida

From sizzling Latin jazz to sonorous saxophone quartets, Douglas Little's Cuban Voyage dances across the soundscape of the Caribbean. The recording features a range of collaborating artists from junior high orchestras to superstar pianists. Douglas Little is an outstanding saxophonist and composer. He has performed internationally and appeared on dozens of CDs. In 2002 and 2005 Little also lived in Cuba for five months. The thirteen tracks on Cuban Voyage reflect the major influence that those five months have had on Little’s work as a composer, improviser, and instrumentalist.

Besides the groundbreaking title track Cuban Voyage, a four movement suite for saxophone quartet and Cuban percussion, this CD includes collaborations with a variety of artists such as Nachito Herrera (Cubanismo), Art Hirahra (Stacy Kent, Dave Douglas), and Kevin Washington (James Carter, Reggie Workman). Also featured are the young musicians of Ramsey Junior High performing “Mi Son Cubano,” an original composition for small orchestra commissioned by the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra as part of their composer in the schools program.

Whether burning it up on a tune like “Monk’s Dream About Cuba” or play the low romantic sounds of the bass clarinet on “Tainted Tango” Douglas Little achieves great musical with this tour de force recording. Highly recommended.
