Brookmeyer, Bob and the Newart Orchestra
Challenge, 2002, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: BigBand
O’s Notes: Bob’s NewArt Orchestra seeks to thrill and they do on Waltzing With Zoe, a collection of eight well developed tracks. Whether it’s the shrill voice of the trumpets/flugelhorns ascending to climax or the deep underlying foundation set by baritone sax and trombones, each of the musicians is playing their heart out. Thanks to Challenge Records for an excellent recording that allows the listener to resolve the beauty!
