Randy Brecker!

Dick Oatts!

Outstanding!

Extraordinary composer’s large ensemble tunes come to life with a special collaboration with two of best jazz musicians to surface, Legendary Randy Brecker & Dick Oatts! In the ‘works’ for many years, “Big Band Minimalism” is an attempt to merge minimalist based compositional techniques a’ la Steve Reich and John Adams with concepts from the modern jazz big band tradition. Big Results!!

On his third recording with Summit and MAMA, Mats Holmquist’s “Big Band Minimalism”, exemplifies quality, REAL writing for Large Jazz Ensemble…’breaking’ it down with a finely tuned big band and Randy Brecker and Dick Oatts, the results are impressive.
