George Lewis & PMJO - Live in Rome '10

Lewis confirms of having a great talent as a composer for large
ensemble with these pieces composed from 1976 to 2009.
Thanks also to a week of rehearsal with the PMJO, the final result is,
in my opinion, remarkable.

Very nice, thank you! Lewis is an amazing composer as well as trombonist (everyone has his Black Saint albums, right? Homage to Charles Parker is one of the greatest albums ever and available for next to nothing on Amazon MP3). So far this sounds kind of like The Shadowgraph Series meets the Usual Turmoil.
