For nearly one year I've written my own compositions and arranged these for a quite special and particular Nonet. With flute and alto flute, clarinet and bass clarinet, alto, tenor and baritone saxophone, trumpet / flugelhorn, trombone, Piano, bass and drums, this ensemble develops an impresssive sound palette, smelting together the myriad facets of contemporary jazz with a classical sound.
Personally, I'm very excited and very happy to share this project with you and I'd be happy to see your comments and suggestions.
