Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra Small Group: Collaboration in Jazz, Featuring the Music of Ge
July 30, 2011 at 07:30 PM
Through such tunes as "Walkin' Shoes," "Line for Lyons" and "Apple Core," this program celebrates historic horn duos—pairs that expanded the role of the "front line" in the small jazz group. In this setting, one horn might take an accompanying role, providing a melodic line or rhythmic figure as accompaniment to the other's solo. The two horns might participate in a musical conversation, passing ideas back and forth. Or, in a process that is as old as jazz itself, they might solo simultaneously, improvising in counterpoint.
