Jim Gailloreto's Jazz String Quintet offers a perfect blend of classical music and jazz: structure and spontaneity. Inspired by sources as diverse as the horn quintets of Mozart and Corky Siegel's "Chamber Blues," Gailloreto interweaves his own soprano saxophone with skilled modernist writing for string quartet. Through a grant from Chamber Music America's New Works Program, Gailloreto presents here his new suite "American Complex" along with a collection of jazz standards arranged for the quintet, and two works by and featuring vocalist/pianist Patricia Barber. "No composer has shaped the structures and layered the phrases of the string quartet to so successfully accommodate full-tilt improvisation..." - Neil Tesser. •"...the intricacy, detail and innovation of Gailloreto's writing evoked the sense of a chamber orchestra." -Chicago Tribune.
