Recorded by DANIEL SCHNYDER & The Modern Art Septet on SECRET COSMOS
Enja: ENJ-5055 / Recorded in 1987
French Horn in F
This piece incorporates some free soloing into another explicitly-notated, demanding piece of music. There are some characteristic jazz syncopations, harmonies reminiscent of jazz, and some figures that must swing, but the demands for mature jazz phrasing are less than in many of the other Schnyder septets.
SOLOS: There is a free flute/bass duet and a solo over mostly one chord with just a few changes at the end for both the soprano sax and the flute. The tempo doubles from medium swing to an uptempo, 2-feel swing for the solos.
DANIEL SCHNYDER (b. 1961). Like Gunther Schuller and David Amram, saxophonist and flutist, Daniel Schnyder, has achieved success in both the Jazz and Classical fields and many of his compositions are an effective merging of these disciplines, featuring solo improvisation and complex orchestral textures. In addition to recording his Jazz septets, Daniel has composed music for the Vienna Art Orchestra, the Atlanta Symphony, The Milwaukee Symphony, the Chicago Symphonietta and has recorded with Hubert Laws, Kenny Drew, Jr. and Victor Lewis.
