U.S.U. Jazz Orchestra: Europa

Read "Europa" reviewed by

Most jazz fans probably don't go chasing college ensembles around looking for the next hot CD release. Those college orchestras are learning grounds. But a well directed college group can indeed treat the ears to top level sounds. The proof is here, with Europa, by the U.S.U. (Utah State Universality) Jazz Orchestra. Under the directorship of Jon Gudmundson, the group takes on music arranged by some of Europe's finest composers and arrangers. Tunes choices are unusual--three Frank Zappa compositions, one by Tom Waits, two from the pen of rockers Radiohead, recorded live with pizazz and gutsy bravado.
