Near East Brass - Jerry Fielding

From the inside, book fold jacket: Jerry Fielding has poured everything into his arrangements. The music is Greek, Turkish, Iranian and Russian. Composers such as Gliere and Borodinn are represented. Broadway and the film world are here. The exotic stringed instruments are here. The brass is here. When Jerry Fielding puts them all together, a strange and tantalizing new music emerges – and the unusual rhythms seem to swing as readily as the familiar 4/4 beat as East and West are joined on an exciting musical common ground.
