Today, 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.”
Also, we’re excited to release »Median« by Nils Petter Molvaer. It’s the second single of his upcoming album »Stitches«. Listen here: nilspettermolvaer.lnk.to/Median
