A joyous big band work that celebrates a message of unconditional love through the prism of Euro-American jazz.
Liner Notes by Fred Bouchard
Fritz and Helen Savari-Renold have assembled a truly unique international cast here to express their profound, moving suite on the Deity’s great effort to restore peace and union with mankind. This majestic, joyous work celebrates a message of unconditional love through the prism of Euro-American jazz. The score reflects myriad jazz influences (Ellington pastel harmonies, Afro-Cuban rhythms, Kenton power bursts) and with deft grace and logic blends them with earlier traditions (Stravinsky chords, Lisztian piano interludes, sinuous Eastern modes). As a cube is a solid resulting from a series of right angles, Fritz and Helen assemble the pre essence of jazz and classical worlds into a seamless, elegant and mystical structure. The performance is dynamic, the conception organic, and the score rich in detail and nuance. Listen, learn and enjoy!
