Collier, Graham - Winter Oranges (special)

"Recorded live in November 2000 at the Copenhagen Jazz House with the Danish Radio Jazz Orchestra, Winter Oranges was commissioned by the Danish Radio Jazz Orchestra as part of a programme of new music. The title was inspired by an old orange tree on the terrace of Collier's house in southern Spain, which provided fresh orange juice throughout the first winter he lived there."

‘It was a great pleasure to work with the Danish Radio Jazz Orchestra again after a gap of many years. Many of the musicians were new to me, but some had been in the band when I worked regularly with them in the 1960s and 70s. Present in the audience at the second concert we played together - sadly not recorded - was another member of those early bands: the great bassist Neils-Henning Ørsted Pedersen, whose untimely death in 2005 was a great shock to us all.’-Graham Collier

"Through the years Collier has consistently showed an affinity for nuance, color, and texture without sacrificing the emotional spontaneity that is at the heart of Jazz, somewhat in the vein of Gil Evans. Collier continues to hone his craft, and the results here testify to his past achievements and continued creativity."-Steven Loewy/All Music Guide
