Arild Andersen double-bass · Tommy Smith tenor saxophone Scottish National Jazz Orchestra Tommy Smith direction
Bassist Arild Andersen shines as the principal soloist in a celebration of music from ECM with specially-commissioned new big-band arrangements of well-known pieces by Dave Holland, Chick Corea, Trygve Seim, Jan Garbarek, and Keith Jarrett. The resourceful Tommy Smith adds powerful tenor solos, arranges Garbarek"s "Molde Canticle", and directs the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra. Andersen"s composition "Independency" is a 16-minute highlight, in a sensitive and powerful arrangement by Mike Gibbs. Other contributing arrangers are Makoto Ozone, Christian Jacob, Geoff Keezer and Trygve Seim/Øyvind Bræke: all of them contribute sterling work, and their arrangements are likely to enter modern jazz"s big band repertory book. Recorded live at Glasgow"s Royal Conservatory, "Celebration" is a highly attractive album for a broad listenership, and as a statement about music introduced by ECM will be of special interest to long-time followers of the label.
