Recorded by DANIEL SCHNYDER & The Modern Art Septet on SECRET COSMOS
Enja: ENJ-5055 / Recorded in 1987
French Horn in F
As in all of the Schnyder septets shown here, this
music demands a jazz musician's ability to swing and, in many cases, improvise convincingly. Furthermore, it demands a serious classical musician's ability to play exacting rhythmic figures that often involve irregular subdivisions of the beat, drastic dynamic motions, scale fragments and intervallic passages that have no immediate connection to the underlying harmony and are far removed from the jazz language. This composition begins with a complex introduction that gradually works into a recognizable 12-bar blues.
SOLOS: There are improvised solos for the flute and saxophone over standard B-flat blues changes.
DANIEL SCHNYDER (b. 1961). Like Gunther Schuller and David Amram, saxophonist and flutist, Daniel Schnyder, has achieved success in both the Jazz and Classical fields and many of his compositions are an effective merging of these disciplines, featuring solo improvisation and complex orchestral textures. In addition to recording his Jazz septets, Daniel has composed music for the Vienna Art Orchestra, the Atlanta Symphony, The Milwaukee Symphony, the Chicago Symphonietta and has recorded with Hubert Laws, Kenny Drew, Jr. and Victor Lewis.
