Arguelles, Julian - Momenta

SKU 21-SRCD29-2
"Momenta is Argüelles’ return to a big band setting, and is the culmination of composing, rehearsing and performing with the Frankfurt Radio Big Band. Recorded live in concert, Momenta is a collection of new arrangements of Argüelles compositions, both old and new, plus two new compositions specifically for this project. Argüelles is a highly versatile musician. His ever-changing formats have produced acclaimed recordings and tours with trio, quartet, octet and solo, yet his relationship with big bands is a long-standing one. As a teenager he was a member of the European Youth Jazz Orchestra, later becoming a founding member of the mid 80’s maverick ensemble, Loose Tubes. He has worked with large groups led by Django Bates, and Chris McGregor’s Brotherhood of Breath, and has been with Kenny Wheeler’s Big Band for 20 years. In addition, Argüelles has written for, amongst others, the Hamburg Radio Big band, Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, and the Royal Academy of Music Jazz Orchestra. And although he feels this project is an extension of his earlier arrangements, he admits that “the more I write music for large ensembles, the more it sounds how I had hoped!”
