‘This is a modern piece in which the big band has stepped out of its comfort zone and is challenging not only the audience but itself as well. And this is great as it proves one thing – the Latvian Radio Big Band is capable of not only working with world-class traditional Jazz stars but also is prepared to give a musical adventure to those hungry for more innovative approaches.
The times are changing and we must change along with the times. Once a high professional standard is almost the absolute norm, a wanderlust for new musical horizons emerges in the forefront’ – such are the words of the music journalist K. Zaviļeiskis on this programme
Matīss Čudars’ original music
