Maria Schneider Orchestra: The Thompson Fields

Read "The Thompson Fields" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

At the time Maria Schneider released Evanescence (Enja, 1994), big band jazz--especially in the US--was overly predictable and indecisively hanging on like ballroom music in a ghost town.

And it's quite possible that the consensus opinion there would be that virtually no one working today can compare favorably to those ...

Maria Schneider Orchestra: The Thompson Fields

Read "The Thompson Fields" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Composer and band leader Maria Schneider has only a single peer... Carla Bley. Both women are direct descendants of Duke Ellington and the spiritual children of Hector Berlioz. They are not masters of a single instrument, but of collections of instruments and their achievement is realized from directing those instruments in a given direction dictated by ...
