Intense, full and exuberant. Whole album is a joy.

About the track

"Blues for Peace" is a Jazz Orchestra work that asks just that. It moves from a riff driven funk-rock, to an extended blues form in 9/8 rhythm, before returning to its opening feel, and a reflective conclusion. "Like several of my pieces, this is in the long tradition of taking the basic blues sensibility and stretching out the form in one way or another," Ehrlich says. "It didn't really work as part of the original `Rundowns,' but orchestrating it made all of the difference. The nine beats are counted 'Taki-Taki-Taki-Gamela' to use the helpful phrases Karl Berger teaches. "Blues for Peace" features Jerome Harris: guitar; Ray Anderson: trombone; Uri Caine: piano; Jason Robinson: tenor sax; Matt Wilson: drums.
