Improv 04

Variety Orchestra

Brian Woodbury




Using Woodbury’s compositions, some hipstah nerdy, ultra-eclectic,
Bill Frissel-like white folks get together, detonate jazz big band conventions, pick up the pieces, and reassemble them in striking new ways.
“Take the J Train” demonstrates thrilling chops from all but is never
show-offy. “Garbanzo Beans” is a suedo-Hispanic rollercoaster joyride. Throughout, this small big band takes Either/Orchestra and Jeff Kaiser big band innovations and inject them into somewhat more mainstream territory and thereby enliven it. It all works well for these poindexterish pomos.
A joy it is. Salut.
