Description:Videoarts Music 25th Anniversary
Limited-Edition Reissue Series!

To celebrate its 25th anniversay, Japan's Videoarts Music label re-released its hit jazz CDs as an attractively priced, limited edition "Hear The Music" series.

Manhattan Jazz Orchestra was created by pianist/arranger David Matthews and an accomplished Japanese producer Shigeyuki Kawashima (both GRAMMY winners) in 1989. It is one of the premier and most prolific big bands in the US, having released more than 13 CDs over the years.

Birdland, recorded in 2004, was the 11th album of the MJO, and came out in its 15th year. The program material was picked in part based on the requests by the Japanese fans. Matthews boldly and vividly re-imagines the well-known tunes and turn them into dynamic and swinging big band fares. The all-star big band, including star players Lew Soloff, Ryan Kisor, Jim Pugh and Chris Hunter, plays Matthews' intricate scores with technical perfection and provide inspired solos. Recommended for fans of the contemporary big band sound!

Produced by Shigeyuki Kawashima and David Matthews. Recorded February 2004, New York.
