MUSIC REVIEW BY C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Twenty-first Century Orchestral Music. For a string orchestra named Scrape, this music is quite well behaved and well- integrated. Approaching Vyones is composed of ten short pieces, each independent of the other, yet melding well as a whole. Guitarist Bill Frisell contributes one piece, "Naomi" to the collection, while the remainder of the selections are Jim Knapp compositions. Traces of Barber and Piston can be heard among the floating harmony and gentle rhythm, with a hint of introspective Bernstein. Knapp composes very accessible modern classical music that can open the doors and minds or a new generation for orchestral music.
