Orchestre National De Jazz - Dancing On Your Head(s) CD

SKU 15-ADC 5881
The ONJazz is the French National Jazz Orchestra – which varies in size, but is always a big band - who have a revolving cast of artistic directors.
Since they have a revolving cast of directors, the only thing that you can count on is that they will present great players playing frighteningly good, stunningly complex music of electric jazz. That’s a pretty good and safe bet for going in blind, even if you don’t know them.

“A work as impressive as it is majestic.”-Jazz News

“Very good album recorded live in Germany. There are plenty of compositions by Ornette Coleman in a fairly electric version.”

“A tribute to the great figure of jazz Ornette Coleman. Driven by the desire to share the incredible power of collective jubilation that the music of the American saxophonist has, and to present his work in a new light, Frédéric Maurin entrusted the arrangements of this program to Fred Pallem, for whom Ornette Coleman also occupies an essential place in her secret garden.
Carried by an electric orchestra articulated around a powerful section of blowers and a sharp rhythm which skilfully combines various profiles, between freed soloists and seasoned musicians at the desks, Dancing in Your Head(s) revisits pieces borrowed from different periods. creators of Ornette Coleman, but also to other artists from the galaxy he spawned Julius Hemphill, Eric Dolphy and Tim Berne, who are just as free and innovative. A completely new reinterpretation of this repertoire favoring groove, celebration and trance.”
