Product description

The Tribute - Proteus 7

Amazon.co.uk

Broadway, jazz, ragtime, classical, sacred--Leonard Bernstein incorporated so many elements in his work that there comes a point where genre is irrelevant. Proteus 7, comprising two trumpets, tuba, percussion, woodwind and a pair of trombones, has a most appropriate name for an ensemble paying tribute to this genius. The seven jazz musicians perform their own arrangements, mostly by percussionist F Feza Zweifel, alongside original compositions. Bernstein's Mass provoked controversy with brass bands and electric guitars, yet the excerpts here are both joyfully golden and reverential. Anthony DiLorenzo brings some blistering, exhilarating trumpet to the "Mambo" from West Side Story, his own composition Mostly Influential, a fantasy on Gershwin, Prokofiev and Bernstein playing poker! Woodwind player Charles Pillow adds his own commentary with the Suite from West Side Story, three short movements which interpolate new material with the original score, especially the song "I Have a Love". The innovative, boundary-breaking spirit of Bernstein lives on in a set which should appeal to lovers of jazz and 20th-century classical music equally. Performances are tight, polished, dynamic, and the recorded sound stupendous.--Gary S. Dalkin

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bernstein riff in just the right spirit of jazzy fun 14 Sept. 2008
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I've never encountered the above Amazon reviewer boefore, but I cna only echo his enthusiasm for this jazzy riff on famous and not so famous Bernstien tunes. Proteus 7 is a modified brass quintet, and such ensembles, since they derive from music conservatories and symphony orchestras, generally feel squzre. Proteus isn't immune to a few flat-footed rhythms, but they soar above other recent Bernstein tribues in his centenary year (EMI reached into its back catalog for leaden and/or sleepy performances, including those by Leonard Slatkin that garnered good reviews in the 80s).

This is a CD of tidbits, centering on a single melody at a time. That's its only limitation, really. After half a dozen two-minute excerpts you feel that Bernstein is being put through a Cuisinart. But I'm not complaining. At the ridiculously low price of this tribute at Amazon Marketplace, anyone can afford to taste its delights. Dorian's sonics, by the way, are of demonstration quality.
