CTI, 2002, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Pop+Jazz
O’s Notes: Rite of Spring is soothing, natural and refreshing. The program is a transformation of classical music, rearranged by Don Sebesky and performed by flutist Hubert Laws and friends. The ‘friends’ include Bob James (p), Ron Carter (b) and Jack DeJohnette (d) who help make these classics palatable to a wider audience. Originally released in 1971 on CTI, this Sony Legacy reissue is a winner.
