New Release Showcase
On his fourth release, the two-CD set Nyhavn Live, composer-arranger Randy Simon has created an extensive program of memorable and fresh originals. "My approach to composing," says Simon, "is almost as if I was trying to write standards. I write tunes in longer forms than is typical in modern jazz. They have melodies that I hope can stay with listeners."
Nyhavn Live is 90 minutes of exciting modern jazz played live in concert by an ensemble of piano, trumpet, saxophone, bass and drums. All five musicians get the chance to display their considerable talents during lively and enthusiastic solos and ensemble arrangements.
