Aaron Aranita Segunda Vista: Second Sight

Composer arranger and saxist Aaron Aranita teams with conductor Brent Fischer for a strong big band reading of originals. The sax section features the strong team of Kirsten Edkins/ts and Tom Peterson/ts, supplying rich solos on the samba’d “Bells” and warm mooded “Sea Dreams” respectively. Carl Saunders’ trumpet sears through the exciting percussion on the exotic “Sierra Leon” while Alex Budman impresses on soprano with Brent Fischer’s hip bass line on “Segunda Vista.” The charts hint of Gil Evans with the elegiac tones.
