Reseña de álbum

From Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin to Mahler and Bartok, European classical music has been a source of inspiration to numerous jazz musicians. The 19th Century compositions of the Strauss family are the subject of All That Strauss, which documents a New Year's 2000 concert by the Vienna Art Orchestra—one of Europe's most adventurous big bands. It is quite appropriate that this Strauss tribute concert was performed in Vienna and that the orchestra has Vienna in its name; for many classical greats have lived in Austria's largest city, including Johann and Eduard Strauss.

All That Strauss won't appeal to classical purists or classical snobs, but from a jazz perspective, it's a gem.

By the turn of the century, the Lincoln Center paradigm defined the jazz big band as a finished concept — locked into the past, serving mostly...
