Jazz Thursday: “Journey Home” with the MSO

It’s an early post, in part because this artist deserves to have her music in the full light of day. I enjoyed Maria Schneider’s compositions at the Eastman School of Music in the 80’s. Her ability to get wonderful color from the jazz big band makes me drool. I wish I could arrange and compose like that.

Her web site is well worth exploring–lots of music in many formats is available there. She was awarded a well-deserved Grammy for her latest release, Sky Blue. I also like the tune above from her 2000 release Allegresse. Enjoy the genius.
