Album Description

From his own big band albums, to his Grammy-nominated ‘Symphony No. 1,’ or his hundreds of credits in film, TV, and writing for some of the world's biggest artists, composer/arranger Chris Walden has never shied away from monumental musical challenges. With ‘Missa Iubileum Aurem,’ Walden was commissioned by trombonist and Napa Valley entrepreneur Ted Hall, in celebration of his 50th Wedding Anniversary, to find an original approach to melding jazz with the awe-inspiring tradition of the liturgical Mass. Recruiting "cantors" Kurt Elling and Tierney Sutton, along with the Los Angeles and Bay Area artists of the LMR Jazz Orchestra, and organist Simon Berry with St. Dominic’s Schola Cantorum choir, Walden has created a soaring masterpiece. Ted Hall's 55-year dedication to connecting 2000 years of liturgical music with jazz began as trombonist with the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Band at The Village Vanguard. Performing on the 1969 national PBS broadcast of The Requiem Mass for Robert Kennedy led to Hall’s first uncompleted work in 1970, followed by a Dmitri Matheny-penned New Millennium Mass, ‘Spiritu Sancto’ - performed at San Francisco's St. Dominic’s Catholic Church, midnight, December 31, 1999 - and ultimately, this ‘Missa Iubileum Aurem,’ celebrating love and the promise of eternal spiritual life, as a singular, joyous Golden Jubilee experience.
