The composer's outline, titling, and explanations sound (ahem) fine to me. At the least he's caught an untested idea and given it an airing (sorry).

Peter, do you know of Mr Farber ? The credentials are impressive; it's encouraging that an established musician has entered this new arena . . .?

I had heard of him, but was not familiar with what he does.

I’m not sure his writing would have been innovative in 1955, let alone 2020. Spang a lang swing is what I’m hearing.

Ellington, Mingus, and later Gil Evans revolutionized the big band sound. I’m not hearing it here, but am curious how he will interpret Usonia into his swing.

Now this! 1959 Gil Evans with Miles, absolutely transcendental, and far more modern:

Thanks, Peter. (Your first link is't opening for me. I tried deleting the "playlist" part of the URL, but no go . . .)

ANYTHING with Miles Davis is transcendent! I believe their is a documentary coming up on PBS about Miles.
