Composer Wayne Horvitz and The Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble:"At The Reception"

Composer Wayne Horvitz put together this amazing band of young men and women from Seattle's junior colleges and high schools and picked the cream of the crop to perform these 13 compositions. The playing is extraordinary with many fine solos by these young unknowns. The compositions are superb and demonstrate Mr. Horvitz' influences: Basie, Ellington, Mingus, Evans but most of all the originality of Wayne Horvitz. The band has 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, a clarinet, a soprano saxophone, an alto, tenor and baritone saxophone and piano bass and drums. A basic big band but this is not an ordinary band but and extraordinary one. The album was produced by Vancouver's Tony Reif and issued on Songlines Records and is called "At The Reception". Check out some very original music right here!
