Coming up in July, the composer and arranger Vince Mendoza shares with us his latest album “Freedom over everything” – played by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra and featuring a wide range of artists like Black Thought from The Roots, Derrick Hodge, Joshua Redman, Julia Bullock, Jan Hasenöhrl and Antonio Sánchez.
The album combines a classical and a jazz approach to composing. Says Vince Mendoza: “I am keen to make use of the orchestra to tell my story, but I always seek to retain my Jazz sensibilities, especially with rhythm and colors. On the other hand, an improvisor’s commentary on a written part can give a most immediate human spirit to an idea.”
An exciting project to be released July 2nd via Modern Recordings.
While waiting, get a taste of the great range of productions that Vince Mendoza was involved in:
