Description

WHAT IS THIS MUSIC ?? 

The Miniature Orchestra sounds like a classical chamber ensemble that went over to the dark side. Clarinet, bass clarinet, French horn, violin and cello mix it up with a jazz rhythm section: piano, vibes, bass and percussion. Oh, yeah, and sometimes saxophones.

Almost all original compositions, except for a few unusual arrangements of 1950''s - 60's doo-wop classics.

Serious, deep and beautiful one moment, light-hearted and boppy a minute later. Eclectic. The approach combines jazz-flavored improvisation with extended compositional techniques

The group plays without mikes, amps, or electric instruments - pure, organic health food music.
