Oneness within the diversity of music : a suite for jazz chamber ensemble in four movements
MetadataShow full item record
Oneness within the Diversity of Music is a four-movement suite with world music and jazz influences. The suite includes world music elements from Asian folk sources, as well as Hungarian gypsy, Hindustani, Brazilian and Argentine music. The underlying concept -- the goal of this suite, is to combine jazz language with world music elements. The musical arrangement of Oneness within the Diversity of Music integrates Asian and jazz styles. Two main styles characterize the musical arrangements throughout the suite: the Asian-influenced style, which incorporates non-harmonized linear melodic lines and multiple counter-lines in unison simultaneously, and the jazz style, with chamber strings, wind section, and piano harmonized using jazz language.
