A może - w czasach, gdy nawet muzyka klubowa stylizuje się na 'nu jazz" - przypomnieć sobie o jazzowym poemacie dźwiękowym? Previte oferuje najnowsze arcydzieło gatunku. Cykl miniatur zainspirowanych obrazami magicznego surrealisty, Miro (ich reprodukcje we wkładce czynią z płyty stylowe multimedium). To olśniewająca rozwibrowaną kolorystyką i aurą wyszukanych, akustycznych brzmień big bandowa fantazja, która tyle samo zawdzięcza minimal music i exotica. Wibrafon, marimba, gongi, harfa, flugelhorn, trąbka, basklarnet w karkołomnie pięknych aranżach.

Editor's info:
An exciting new musical universe from the mind of composer/performer Bobby Previte. Filled with sweeping gestures and meticulous detail, The 23 Constellations of Joan Miró is Bobby Previte's dream project and one that he's been working on for over six years. Performed here with an all-star ensemble, Constellations is beautifully recorded and presented with a lush 36 page booklet containing color reproductions of all twenty-three of Miró's masterpieces. Previte's most original compositional achievement is also his most delightful.
“In the bigger picture, it updates the very spirit of western composition”
- Ken Smith, GRAMOPHONE magazine.
Joan Miró was one of the twentieth century’s greatest artists. The 23 “Constellation” paintings were perhaps his greatest achievement. In 1993 the composer Bobby Previte went to the Miró Retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art and saw them all, (together for only the third time in history), and was stunned.
