Erica Seguine/Shannon Baker Jazz Orchestra / Press

“Seguine and Baker approached big band like a live oil painting. Colors were arranged by vibrancy and emotional content, not necessarily by section (high instruments with other high instruments, for example). The co-leaders took a controlled but liberalized approach to big band, where Bach, Dave Holland and the poetry of Rainier Marie Rilke are all fair game.”

“Elegant but shapeshifting original compositions and a quirky sense of humor (and a Bach tango), a pleasant change from your usual big band fare.”
