DOWNBEAT 4 1/2 stars: ‘’…The band continues to display ensemble and solo maturity on superb arrangements…equally impressive is how trombonist-composer McGuinness uses compositional variety to tell a story…brass and reed sections expertly working off each other
deftly utilizes what came before to show what is possible in the present.’’
Critically acclaimed, (2008) Grammy Finalist, band leader, arranger, composer and trombonist, Pete McGuinness has become the dynamic performer that you'd expect to ‘’rise’’ out of NYC - Here he brings back together sixteen incredible NYC jazz musicians for a soaring large ensemble recording with many original creations...a MUST for any large jazz ensemble (or jazz for that matter) fan!
Like the image of a flock of birds seen on the cover of this CD, the members of McGuinness’ group act as a wonderful and graceful unit for this - his 2nd large ensemble recording. This big band showcasing his exceptional writing and playing talents is the culmination of over twenty years within the exclusive, competitive jazz atmosphere of New York. The Pete McGuinness Jazz Orchestra, born in September 2006, features some of the finest players NYC has to offer.
