O’s Notes: This is classic, jazz performed by Calefax, a Dutch reed quintet featuring five musicians: Oliver Boekhoorn (oboe), Bart de Kater (cl), Raaf Hekkema (sax), Jelte Althuis (b-cl) and Alban Wesly (bassoon). They give us a delightful performance with arrangements of American classics. Highlights include the “Rhapsody In Blue”, and “Excursions” suites, “Satin Doll”, and “Overjoyed”. An American Rhapsody is a musical road trip with an excellent map (liner notes) across the United States that will resonate with many, reflecting our rich diversity in music cultures.
