Composition No. 30.
Bruces Fingers BF 27
The compositions and performance of British bassist Simon H. Fell on this two-CD set may be the long-awaited physical flowering of Gunther Schullers and John Lewis ideas from the 1960s. Fell may also have taken those theories even further.
In the early 1960s, Schuller, a modern composer, French hornist and head of Bostons New England Conservatory; and Lewis, pianist and music director of the Modern Jazz Quartet; conceived of Third Stream music that would combine elements of musics first and second streams of classical music and jazz. They recorded a few albums and even put together a mixed jazz and classical ensemble called Orchestra USA. MORE
