ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“With the complexity of modern classical music mixed with the improvised vitality of jazz, the music Small writes is distinctly original.” ~ The Oakland Tribune

“Accomplished improvisers, and conservatory trained, the musicians (of Matt Small’s Chamber Ensemble) are all capable of exploring Small’s vision of music with one foot in the modern classical world and one foot in modern jazz. Rhythmically assertive and harmonically dense, his compositions often require the Ensemble to play with a rock band’s dynamics.” ~ Contra Costa Times
