Description: Music by three British and two American composers which use jazz as the basis of their works (Templeton’s first little sonata even adds a drummer in its brief third movement. Wilder differs slightly in appearing to follow Gunthr Schuller’s “Third Stream” concept and you’ll find a fugato in the first movement and tonally-organized dodecaphony ints last one. Sargon’s positively drips with smoky and cloudy jazz-club atmosphere. Gianluca Campagnolo (clarinet), Francesco Scrofani Cancellieri (piano).
