KENNY WERNER – No Beginning No End
(Half Note Records, VÖ: 27.08.2010)
Winner of the 2010 Guggenheim Fellowship Award, Kenny Werner’s No Beginning No End is a magnum opus with Woodwinds, Voices & Strings. His deeply personal tribute to daughter Katheryn is a triumphant work of composed and improvised music, Classical and Jazz, performed by nearly 100 musicians and highlighted by saxophonist Joe Lovano and vocalist Judi Silvano. No Beginning, No End is a milestone composition and recording, as much for its creative reach as for the emotional terrain it examines. In Werner’s own words, it is “The most important music I’ll ever write.” A career high point.
