Description

As this CD reveals, Paul Whiteman created some of the most exciting experimental symphonic jazz of all time, blending influences of Spanish, Russian, Chinese and Cuban music (to name a few) and the compositions of the Gershwin Brothers, Duke Ellington, plus classical composers like Ravel, Franz Liszt and Rimsky-Korsakov.Paul Whiteman’s music is unique in the history of jazz; its ingredients, styles and influences are too diverse to be summed up in a few words – just enjoy the music! Whiteman’s lush orchestral style has influenced countless other big bands. Whiteman’s highly skilled musicians were at home playing jazz, tango, waltzes, classical airs and even opera, which is why no other popular band of the day (or today, either, for that matter) could begin to match such a wide-ranging repertoire
