The Pedro Giraudo Jazz Orchestra Premieres "Campo"

By Published: | 5,430 views
When Giraudo channeled the big band and folkloric spirit through careful orchestration, the music sounded vital—the careful deployment of techniques and aesthetics rather than wishy-washy nostalgia. When history served merely as a flourish—the flamenco clapping, Davis' overly excited Swing Era drum solo—the music sounded dated, out-of-touch. In this premiere performance, the Pedro Giraudo Jazz Orchestra probed for its best sound, erring occasionally, but, in the best big band tradition, making up for shortcomings with sustained punch and vigor.
