A FanFaire-Cinemedia-Aleph Records CD GIVEAWAY... 


JAZZ meets the SYMPHONY

THIS UNIQUE NEW CD
IS A TESTAMENT
to the GENIUS and VISION of
LALO SCHIFRIN

ARGENTINE-BORN COMPOSER
PIANIST & CONDUCTOR


Recorded with the CZECH NATIONAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA in Prague, July 2010 / conducted by LALO SCHIFRIN and KRYSTOF MAREK.

JAZZ and SYMPHONY - stylistically and structurally soooo different one could say, paraphrasing Rudyard Kipling's view of East and West, "JAZZ is JAZZ, and SYMPHONY is SYMPHONY, and NEVER the twain shall meet."  Obviously, this CD belies this variation of Kipling's dictum which sets strictures on music that LALO SCHIFRIN's boundless imagination would never accept. "INVOCATIONS" is the seventh recording in SCHIFRIN's series "JAZZ MEETS THE SYMPHONY" which he started back in 1993, having realized from his early experience with film scores that the differences between the two art forms may in fact be only surface-deep. In reality, SCHIFRIN, 4-time GRAMMY winner, only had to look into his own person. He is best known today for his compositions for film, but his musical persona--indeed, his genius--was shaped both by his training as a classical pianist (while a law student) in Argentina and his studies at the Paris Conservatoire (with Olivier MESSAIEN among others) and by his abiding interest in jazz. In him, the TWAIN literally did meet! Thus, it is no small wonder that his JAZZ MEETS THE SYMPHONY series has met with resounding international success. And one can only expect that his continuing explorations into the fusion of these traditionally distinct art forms will lead to new insights and thoroughly enjoyable musical experiences.


  LISTEN to some excerpts from "INVOCATIONS" - Jazz Meets the Symphony No. 7 (composed and/or arranged by LALO SCHIFRIN) with JAMES MORRISON 9trumpet, trombone, flugelhorn & piccolo trumpet), PIERRE BOUSSAGUET (bass), and TOM GORDON (drums). The music playing in the background is from Track 5 - "REVERIE".
