The “little big band” of 8-12 pieces provides a nice pallet of tonal colors as exemplified by people like Gil Evans, Gerry Mulligan, Phil Woods, et al. How nice to see that tradition carried forward and updated to the 21st century by Oliver Groenewald whose rich arrangements are played with obvious relish by this outstanding group of musicians.
