Album Review

Glick, Brian – “Trophy ” – [Newsonic]

Max Level   4/23/2006   A Library, CD

Is it jazz, or modern classical, or??what…? Trophy is a 43-minute instrumental work, divided into six untitled sections. It’s sparse, strange, and interesting. My initial impression was that it was random and meandering, seemingly assembled from a box of unrelated parts. But upon more listening, I started to hear the parts fitting, and the various instrument combinations working together. I still don’t think I’ve heard all there is to hear in this. New Yorker Glick composed the work, conducts the ensemble, and plays saxophone. The group includes a couple of other saxes, oboe, bass clarinet, trumpet, contrabass, vibes, and percussion. Hearing this music is like listening to colorful bursts that leave a lot of blank canvas showing.
