This might be a known release to most of you but for those who don't know it, I can seriously recommend checking out Vince Mendoza's Epiphany album. It was a mindblowing experience for me when I first listened to it, much similar fashion as Claus Ogerman was. He composes beautiful jazzy arrangements with full orchestra and the end outcome is pretty much in a realm of its own:


Any other Mendoza fans here? :)

I am, always loved his work, both as an arranger for others and as composer... first time I saw his name was on a Peter Erskine record, "Motion Poet" many years ago. His work for Joni Mitchell is also outstanding. Big fan of Ogerman too, since his arrangements for A.C.Jobim... and the great Cityscape album
