Yes, you read that correctly. This is a choral CD, with music written by famous jazzer Dave Brubeck, who happens to be adept in classical music. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, since even his jazz writing is heavily influenced by classical counterpoint and more. The Pacific Mozart Ensemble with the Quartet San Francisco has worked to edit these works and perform them for all to hear on the Dorian Sono Luminus label. These are enjoyable works, mostly traditional in style, though Brubeck does insert extended, crunched harmonies, not unlike jazz, in key moments. The performers have given these works serious thought and work.
