Bassist Martin Wind and his quartet are back with an album that pays tribute to the great jazz composer/pianist Bill Evans. The quartet includes Scott Robinson on tenor sax, Bill Cunliffe on piano and Joe LaBarbera on drums. LaBarbera also played in a trio with Evans.
The album, Turn Out the Stars — Music Written or Inspired by Bill Evans, sees the quartet working with the Italian Orchestra Filarmonica Marchigiana and also places Wind not only in the role of bassist, but also orchestral arranger.
Wind talks about how the album came together, and what it was like arranging orchestral work:
