"There hasn’t been a substantial recording of a large ensemble representing Oliver Nelson’s work since his passing in 1975. This project invigorates his music through re-imagination and arrangements for an ensemble of my choice and design and present it to a new audience. The selections provide a view of some of his diverse and large body of work."
