Mark Masters has arranged the music of many great composers over the years including Clifford Brown, Lee Konitz, Gary McFarland, George Gershwin, Duke Ellington and even Steely Dan. On Night Talk, Masters takes on the music of Alec Wilder. The 9 piece Mark Masters Ensemble features the great baritone saxophonist Gary Smulyan throughout on this wonderful excursion through Wilder’s songbook. Wilder once said, “I don’t believe the layman has any notion of the miraculous chain of events which occur when a jazz musician plays.” Night Talk exemplifies those events and they are truly miraculous!
