About

Called "one of the most original and compelling jazz albums in recent memory" (Montreal Gazette), Matt
Haimovitz
and Uccello's Meeting of the Spirits gets a surround-sound makeover for the PENTATONE Oxingale
series. Featuring jazz milestones re-imagined for a big band of cellos, arranged by composer David Sanford, the
2010 Grammy-nominated album was hailed by All About Jazz as "a captivating recording from start to finish ...
Haimovitz and Sanford have created a work of great beauty."

The cellos wail, slide, and swing in an all-new big band sound - joined by dazzling musical contributions from
guitar legend John McLaughlin, percussionist Matt Wilson and Jan Jarczyk on keyboards - in works by Ornette
Coleman
, Charles Mingus, John McLaughlin (Mahavishnu), Miles Davis, Billy Strayhorn and other jazz greats. NPR
says, "This agile band of players, led by such a free spirit, makes almost everything sound fresh."
