O’s Notes: Composer, arranger and conductor Mats Holmquist teams up with venerable jazz trumpeter Randy Brecker and the UMO Jazz Orchestra to make“Together.“It is an explosive album anchored by a solid rhythm section including bassist Juho Kivivuori and guitarist Mikel Ulfberg. The brass is incredibly crisp with layered harmonies that sooth the soul and powerful transitions that are packed with energy. The program touches the late eighties, early millennium and today. Holmquist reimagines two classics, “Stella By Starlight” (“My Stella”) and “All Things That You Are” (“All My Things”), rearranges three Corea tracks and adds three new originals. Sit back and enjoy it.
