Bob Belden: "Black Dahlia" (A Suite in 12 Movements).

Bob Belden wrote this music for a 69 piece orchestra to portray the life of Elizabeth Short aka "The Black Dahlia". Her full story is on the web but the music can stand on it's own. Moody, introspective and sometimes dream, exotic and exciting. This huge project features work by trumpeters Tim Hagans and Lew Soloff, saxophonists Lawrence Feldman, Mike Migliore, Joe Lovano and Bob Belden and trombonist Conrad Herwig and contributions by several pianists, Kevin Hays, Marc Copeland and many more. A great piece of orchestral mood music at it's best tracing this story. A masterpiece of orchestration and writing. Kudos to Bob Belden!
