Bob Brookmeyer has had a substantial, decades-long career in jazz as a valve trombonist, composer, and arranger. In perhaps his most ambitious project to date, Brookmeyer pairs a string quartet with a jazz orchestra, for a sprawling, inspired, and imaginative adventure through Americana (drawing from traditional folk melodies in the manner of composers Copeland and Ives). Brookmeyer's focus here is less on individual soloing (except for the string quartet, of course) and more on composition as a whole.
