Michael Blake's New Work Contrasts in Individualism (Chamber Music America's 2013 New Jazz Works: Commissioning and Ensemble Development program funded through the generosity of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation) examines the impact of two tenor sax giants: Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young. The work delves into the heart of swing by reinterpreting the stylistic innovations of Hawkins and Young that gave birth to bop, cool and modern jazz by peering at their concepts through a contemporary lens. Michael will be releasing a CD of this music in late October on Sunnyside Records entitled Tiddy Boom.
