Balance of Opposites

Creating Coherent Beauty

This band has been formed in order to maintain and build on the tradition of the best American music - a tradition exemplified by the masterpieces of Armstrong, Ellington, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, The Modern Jazz Quartet, Gil Evans and Bill Evans, among others.

Bill Evans has made the most profound impression on my musical life. The principles that make Bill’s music function as it does are expanded and amplified into a repertoire for this orchestra.
