FOR THE TIME BEING

For The Time Being – composition and arrangement: Bert Joris.

Line up: 5 saxes – 4 trombones – 4 trumpets- piano – double bass – drums and solo trumpet or solo vocal.

Recorded on The Music of Bert Joris.

For the Time Being is a spin-off of a jazz combo waltz wich the BRT (Belgian Radio & Television Broadcasting Company) commissioned me to write in 1986. I vaguely remember struggling to finish it, and being anything but satisfied with the result. Hence the title: ‘For the Time Being’. Funnily enough, it has been one of my most succesful compositions to date.
It is written (and recorded) as a vocal chart, but I recorded it as a flugelhorn feature with Brussels Jazz Orchestra in 2001 on the CD ‘Brussels Jazz Orchestra – The Music of Bert Joris’, a recording with 13 compositions and arrangements of me.  Enjoy!

NUÉES D’ORAGE

Nuées d’Orage – composition and arrangement: Bert Joris.

Line up: 5 saxes – 4 trombones – 4 trumpets – piano – double bass – drums and trumpet solo.

Recorded on  The Music of Bert Joris.

“Nuées d’orage is antipodal to Django Reinhardt’s Nuages. All the aspects of Nuages are tossed around. Tempo, chordquality, style, mood, … I changed it into a nasty thunderstorm.
When I wrote it, I put in a lot of stress and anger. That works better than therapy and it’s cheaper. Maybe it’s beneficial for your peace of mind too.
We recorded it with Brussels Jazz Orchestra in 2001 on the double CD ‘Brussels Jazz Orchestra – The Music of Bert Joris’. I play the second solo, after the piano. Here, however, it’s written according to my original idea: the lead alto is being asked for soloing and vamping at the end. Enjoy!”

WARP 9

Warp 9 – composition and arrangement: Bert Joris.

Line up: 5 saxes – 4 trombones – 4 trumpets- piano – double bass – drums.

Recorded on The Music of Bert Joris.

I adore the warm timbre that emanates from a big band playing at its most subdued. Walkin’ Tiptoe, for example, really comes into its own right when the wind sections plays so softly that the muted trumpet rises above it without extra amplification.
I recorded it with Brussels Jazz Orchestra in 2001 on the double CD ‘Brussels Jazz Orchestra – The Music of Bert Joris’. I play the melody and improvise as first soloist, Marc Godfroid plays the trombone solo.  Enjoy!
