About Ingrid Laubrock Orchestra
I chose the musicians of this octet when I was commissioned to write for the New Jazz Meeting 2011, a prestigious SWR radio production that has existed for over 40 years.
We had ten days to rehearse, record and tour the music I had written, a situation that is becoming more and more rare and it was a wonderful experience.
A lot of the music is pretty through composed. I always wanted to play with Drew Gress and loved Ted Reichman’s playing every time I heard him. Ben Davis, Tom Arthurs and Liam Noble are all great musicians and old friends I worked with for years while living in the UK.It was great to have old and new worlds come together – the outcome will be released on Intakt Records in 2012.
