Jazz odyssey tribute to Paul Klee!
Puzzling that this release is classified as "classical"; this is instead jazz of the highest order and is thoroughly recommended. True, it is ambitious, and this is perhaps why it is classified as classical, featuring the Swiss Jazz Orchestra and Camerata Bern; but it is Stockhausen's (and Henzi's) compositions and improvisations that impress. Some soloists in the Swiss Jazz Orchestra also make some mean appearances, including the lead saxophonist and guitarist (no idea who they are - personnel info please, eMusic???). Indeed, the latter makes some passages sound reminiscent of the Mahavishnu Orchestra. Download, download, download!
