DOMINATE: to exercise control
over: govern; to tower above; loom over...
To most musicians this word would seem to describe the role
played in our lives by music. Our daily relationships are
affected by constant concern for "the music."
Jazz musicians are dominated even more than others because of
peculiar patterns in the jazz society. Though jazz is the haven
for players who wish to express their individuality, composers
are left at the mercy of these players. For unlike dance bands or
symphony orchestras, where the style of the composition dictates,
jazz groups perform a work in the player's own style.
Oliver Nelson, Nat Adderley and I have collaborated in the
creation of this album in order to present the music of these
composers in the styles of the various compositions. We have
tried to compliment the trumpet and alto sound with the large
orchestra without intruding upon the virtues of either sound.
This is simply one assault upon the tyranny of style. However,
the tyrant will probably turn out to be music itself-that which
dominates us all.
