About the Album

“Compelled" is the second movement of the title suite from acclaimed composer/arranger/pianist Mike Holober's double album "Hiding Out” with his all-star Gotham Jazz Orchestra. Commissioned by the Philadelphia Museum of Art (funded by the Pew Foundation), the piece was written while Holober was visiting Wyoming where he was inspired by the state’s natural beauty. Soloists featured on this track are Steve Cardenas on guitar and Holober on piano. Holober spent a decade hiding in plain sight as an arranger and composer with some of the world’s most renowned large ensembles (Westchester Jazz Orchestra, HR Big Band, WDR Big Band). The masterful musician returns to the helm of his own stellar big band for this breathtaking new double album on which he unveils two sweeping new suites, inspired by the grand vistas of the natural world but invigorated by the pulse of the urban jungle where the music thrives. The album also features a pair of standalone pieces. “There’s a double meaning to the title Hiding Out,” Holober says. “One is that I’ve been hiding out as a composer, arranger and sideman for other people and as an educator. But it also comes from the places where I wrote or that inspired these pieces – beautiful settings in the mountains and along the banks of beautiful rivers.”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
