After all these years, Pat & Eberhard & Gary (72 at this recording; can’t wait to hear what occurs at his 75th!) et al. still make magical music together, however the amalgamation. The record is an excellent mix of voices to honor Weber, and I hope you have the chance to hear it very soon, if you haven’t done so already. As side notes: Pat’s solo on "Hommage" has a touch of "Blade Runner" to it; I’ve often thought that the inner sleeve pic on Orchestrion Project is like Pan meets Blade Runner, if that connection makes any sense. And finally, Pat says that this is the first time he’s written for big band since he was back in high school. Can you imagine the work back then? Probably blew away most music that some spend their whole lives trying to make!

Bookmark and Share I caught the North American debut at the 2015 Detroit Jazz Festival. It was a great performance with Pat, Scott, Gary and Danny Gottlieb plus the Detroit Jazz Festival Orchestra. They had an early release of the CD at the festival. Great recording.
