In 2015, Anna Webber and Angela Morris brought together their arsenal of skills as composers-performers-conductors to form the Webber/Morris Big Band, an ensemble of eighteen stellar New York improvisers who bring their combined artistic vision into reality. While the band's instrumentation - trumpets, trombones, saxophones, and rhythm section - may be seen as typical, the music is rooted in minimalism, noise, pop, and the sounds of today. Integrating improvisation and composed material in unorthodox ways and using extra-musical sources - such as poetry or mathematics ' here the traditional big band sound mutates into something unpredictable and exciting. The album features nine original compositions by Webber and Morris, including a piece that integrates a text from Maya Angelou. This is big band music for the here and now from a band at the top of their game.
