Kurt Marti Suite (Origin Records) by Chris Walden
Expressing his connection to the German language & culture, Chris Walden chose lyrics
from the revered Swiss poet Kurt Marti to compose an ambitious new work for big band
and choir. Born and raised in Hamburg, Walden dedicated the piece to the city's 100-
member St John's Choir, who appear on the recording, along with his ensemble of
renowned Los Angeles studio and jazz musicians. Besides the suite, "Slings and Arrows" is
a composition by Michael Brecker, who appeared on Walden's first big band recording in
1995. "A compositional virtuoso..." - JazzTimes
