Following the darcy james argue show, here’s another couple of shows with large groups, both led by maria schneider.  i had trouble deciding between the ndr big band and the parco della musica jazz orchestra, so why not both?  nothing exceeds like excess.   funny, i didn’t set out to have another big band / jazz orchestra posting, but it’s kind of nice it worked out that way.  enjoy!

bombdiggity – 2012-09

this was broadcast in two segments with considerable discussion throughout.  no applause was present. i edited to music only and added spaces to put fairly consistent distance between each track. i also ordered the tracks to provide a coherence and flow that i felt suited to the music that was provided.  the selection leaned toward the earlier era and contemplative end of his work.  one track was faded out quickly (and challenged my programming ideas regarding flow). one track was unannounced and i cannot recall the title. help with that would be appreciated (and i’ll update these notes).
