This is an interesting jazz version of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons. The great clarinetist Eddie Daniels performs with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (whose personnel and instrumentation is unidentified) plus pianist Alan Broadbent, bassist Dave Carpenter, and drummer Peter Erskine. The arrangements by Jorge Calandrelli put each of the seasons in three movements, alternating between straight classical interpretations and jazz improvising off of the melodies. Calandrelli also contributed a closing "The Fifth Season." Daniels plays brilliantly throughout, but the music comes across as a bit trivial, alternating between two very different idioms and rarely trying to mix them together. Better to get Eddie Daniels' Breakthrough album (which is a better third stream effort) instead.
