    I read this on wonmusic.com :
    "On September 4-10 Kurt recorded an all-new album with a Portuguese Big Band called Orchestra de Jazz de Matosinhos. They have made arrangements of some of Kurt's compositions, and have previously made excellent recordings with Chris Cheek and Lee Konitz among others. We hope to release this album in early 2010, and will do live dates in the summer of 2010 as well."
    Anybody has more information ?
    New compositions on it ?

    Thanks a lot for your answers.
    So it will be the first time turns will be published, and in a Big Band formation ! All great tunes in any case ! Kurt Rosenwinkel in a big band context, can't wait to hear it !

    Would love to hear some teasers from this album, but I guess that could take a while. Man, what a monster "Turns" must "turn" into in a big band setting? I can already imagine the sounds of the chords arranged for horns in this one. Hope anyone wasnt hurt playing the head of song though. You might never recover from that...

    best,

    The official release date is set for September 7, 2010 Redbeard. I don't think I am hyping if I tell everyone that this album is going to blow your minds!

    Thanks for the news, Anders. My mind could use a good blow.

    hahaha! That sounds like a line spoken in Miami, say, 1979?

    YES! I am counting the days now! My favorite of Kurt's compositions are on this record. A Big Band Dream of the Old!!!!! It reminds me of the first time I heard Kurt in October 2005 when I bought Enemies of Energy, every fall I think of that album and fall in love again.

    I am shaking in my seat upon hearing the news of this....Ive heard kurts playing in a big band setting....bootlegged....its power.

    Our Secret World is probably what im most excited about hearing, I think when i was learing it on piano I listened to it 400 times a day with my friend transcribing the lead on trumpet straight into my ear....so to hear this tune with an actual horn section should be nuts...

    Question: Does anyone know if this will be released in the same way The Remedy was released?

    P.S... It would be amazing to have Mark Turner on this album.
