Reverso – Shooting Star – Étoile Filante

Avant-jazz trombonist Ryan Keberle collaborates with fellow New Yorkers Frank Woeste (piano) and Vincent Courtois (cello) on an exploration of new jazz influenced partially by the legendary Lili Boulanger, a favorite of my great-grandmother’s.  From Ryan’s Bandcamp site:

“The music of this album is inspired in various ways by the seminal French composer, Lili Boulanger, and her astoundingly beautiful music. Lili Boulanger’s musical accomplishments have yet to receive the universal celebration they deserve and this album looks to highlight her deeply compelling and inspiring music.

Special thanks to Villa Albertine, French American Cultural Exchange Foundation, The French Ministry of Culture, and Institut Français, who generously supported the making of this album through a Villa Albertine Jazz and New Music Grant.”
