ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Passion and humor, excitement and romantic tenderness, energy and relaxation, forward moving propulsion and thoughtful contemplation, dramatic variations in dynamics, organized ensembles and spontaneous solo passages….these are the elements we seek to provide in balanced proportion and organized form in order to communicate effectively in the language of jazz.

This band has been formed in order to maintain and build on the tradition of the best American music - a tradition exemplified by the masterpieces of Armstrong, Ellington, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, The Modern Jazz Quartet, Gil Evans and Bill Evans, among others. Bill Evans has made the most profound impression on Chuck Israels' musical life. The principles that make Bill’s music function as it does are expanded and amplified into a repertoire for this orchestra.

Chuck Israels is a composer/arranger/bassist who has worked with Billie Holiday, Benny Goodman, Coleman Hawkins, Stan Getz, Herbie Hancock, J.J. Johnson, John Coltrane, Bud Powell and many others. He is best known for his work with the Bill Evans Trio from 1961 through 1966 and for his pioneering accomplishments in Jazz Repertory as Director of the National Jazz Ensemble from 1973 to 1981.

Among Chuck's many recordings as a bassist, some outstanding ones include: Coltrane Time, with John Coltrane; My Point of View, with Herbie Hancock; Getz au Go-Go, with Stan Getz; and many recordings with the Bill Evans Trio, including The Town Hall Concert; The Second Trio; Trio '65; Live at the Trident; Time Remembered; and Live at Shelley's Manne Hole.
