Christopher Zuar Orchestra: Musings

Read "Musings" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Esordio discografico per il ventinovenne newyorchese Christopher Zuar, nato trombettista ma ormai dedito alla composizione e all'arrangiamento, che infatti pratica in questo lavoro che lo vede alla direzione di un'orchestra di diciassette elementi, che arrivano a diciannove in alcune tracce con l'ingresso di percussioni e voce.

Another year is almost in the books. And while there were many things to fret about in 2016, a lack of good music wasn't one of them. A quick look back at the year reminds us that jazz legends remain strong, rising stars continue to rapidly ascend, newcomers are making their presence felt, and the dearly ...

Christopher Zuar Orchestra: Musings

Read "Musings" reviewed by Budd Kopman

There is no doubt that composer Christopher Zuar's debut recording Musings is an impressive achievement.

Read "Musings" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

If you open the packaging for this album, you'll encounter a picture of Christopher Zuar that initially seems to touch on a theme of isolation.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
