- intergalactic contemporary ensemble: i dig
(2001, cd, usa, innova recordings innova 548)
A bit over ten years ago, the Intergalactic Contemporary Ensemble did a concert at the Fineline club in Minneapolis. Known for their performances of contemporary, new music, the ensemble turned quite a few heads as their program listed exotica and lounge jazz compositions by composers such as Les Baxter, Henry Mancini and Leonard Bernstein.
"I Dig" presents a recording of the Fineline concert. If you would have seen me this morning, you would have caught me humming with Joey Altruda's 'Martini For Mancini', or whistling Rudolph Toombs 'One Mint Julep', or even nodding my head in approval of Quincy Jones' 'Soul Bossa Nova'...
This is great !!!
Below are some of the original versions.
If you're ready for the full blast ones, you'll have to check out the Intergalactic Contemporary Ensemble.
