David Chesky's “Concertos For Violin And Orchestra", “Concertos For Flute And Orchestra", and “The Girl From Guatemala" have been nominated for Best Engineered Classical Recording for the 2005 GRAMMY Awards.

This orchestral recording was recorded by Chesky engineer Barry Wolifson of Sydney, Australia. As with all Chesky releases this session was recorded with one microphone, no overdubs, no compression, and the best audiophile microphone pre-amps and cables.

We're especially pleased to be bringing in our 20th Anniversary year on this note. In celebrating our first twenty years, we will release a special 20th Anniversary disc showcasing the best of our best, as well as David's All-Time Top Ten Favorite recordings. A list of these favorites is available on www.chesky.com.

“Area 31: Recording of The Month" - Stereophile

“...deftly orchestrated and full of original ideas..." - The New York Times

“...from a jazz-infused traditional first movement through a sultry Cuban danzn to a brilliant postmodern escapade." - Gramophone

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
