The Andy Ballantyne Large Ensembleâs much-anticipated debut recording âThe Sum of the Partsâ brings together top-flight Canadian jazz musicians performing innovative compositions and arrangements by saxophonist Andy Ballantyne. While the music is firmly rooted in the jazz tradition, the stylistic range is wide and includes elements of mainstream and free jazz, African and Latin rhythmic styles, rock-based feels in odd time signatures and breakbeat/jungle grooves.

ABLE is:

Andy Ballantyne, Tara Davidson, Kelly Jefferson, Peter Lutek: saxophones.
Kevin Turcotte, Jason Logue: trumpets.
William Carn, Rob Somerville: trombones.
David Braid: piano
Michael McClennan: bass
Daniel Barnes: Drums

This âwhoâs whoâ of Canadian Jazz represents the cream of the current generation of musicians on the Toronto scene. Collectively they have garnered numerous Juno Awards and nominations, National Jazz Awards, etc.

I'm very focused on bringing a high level of compositional craft to the aspects of the music that are under my control as a composer: specifically thematic development, orchestration and formal structure. The final and all-important challenge is to build a framework in which improvisation can thrive. I try to create a musical environment in which the soloist(s) can feel free to explore and be spontaneous. In this respect I have been strongly influenced by the work of Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus, as well as more contemporary composers like Dave Holland, Maria Schneider and Jim McNeely.
