We are very pleased to announce that the recording sessions at BRC Audio Productions will begin in October. The music will be released commercially on the Artists Recording Collective label. We will produce a limited quantity of audiophile quality vinyl records. And we will release digital albums via our subscription service only.
I have at least 50 jazz masterworks that I really love for various reasons. As a composer, I hope to record my own original compositions. But, I also want to record the work of other composers I grew up listening to as a jazz artist and student of the music.
With the standards project, I selected 17 of my favorites by other composers to arrange along with 4 of my own original works to record with Christopher Burnett Quintet and five guest musicians (CbQ+5).
There are three recordings planned: Standards Vol. 1, Standards Vol. 2, and Standards Vol. 3
Here’s a MIDI mockup of my arrangement of Windows by Chick Corea that we’ll record on the first volume of standards.
I’m using the additional instruments to supplement the music, but a primary consideration is to retain the jazz quintet aesthetic and feel of the music too. My jazz ensemble has been performing this music each month for the entire year during our residency at Black Dolphin in Kansas City. Our music has developed the aesthetic of a working group, rather than an assemblage of great players getting together for a special occasion or event.
