Video: "Kyrie" by Ike Sturm

A new recording review is in the works, to be posted in a day or two.  In the meantime, I happened across this video, a performance in Oslo, Norway, of “Kyrie,” a pretty piece from Ike Sturm’s Jazz Mass.  Sturm is the composer of the piece and the bassist in the performance, his wife Misty Ann Sturm is the lead singer, and Loren Stillman contributes a fine, spicy-toned alto sax solo. (Of course, there had to be sax content.)  Ike Sturm is another Eastman School of Music grad, and I’ve previously confessed to having a soft spot for such individuals.  But this is a lovely piece of music, at least if don’t mind mixing your jazz with a choir and strings.
