Classical music is the tie that binds from the beginning of the recording to the very end. The CJP is ever-present, with unforgettable string, woodwind, percussion and brass performances. But the music Davis has selected for this recording highlights the innovation of the soloist, and it is the soloist who most brings the element of jazz to the music featured on Collective Creativity.
The best example of this can be found on "West End Blues/Weatherbird," two songs made famous by Louis Armstrong
