The Oregonian: A&E gift guide: The best CDs of the season

November 25, 2010

“Meeting of the Spirits,” with Matt Haimovitz and Uccello (Oxingale, $16.28): Jazz standards arranged for cello ensemble. Haimovitz, a cellist and musical adventurer — he plays Bach in beer halls — leads the eight-member Uccello in a new kind of big-band sound with cool arrangements of Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman, George Gershwin and Charles Mingus. A goodly amount of cello wailing, sliding and picking from the next generation of cellists from Montreal’s McGill University.Meeting of the Spirits
