Maria Schneider Orchestra: Newport Jazz 2010

A master of the sweeping gesture, the South American tinge and the color-rich palette, Maria Schneider leads what many call the best large ensemble in jazz. Her music is full of depth and variety, and her band stacked with some of the best soloists to be found anywhere. She led a set of favorite compositions at the CareFusion Newport Jazz Festival in Newport, R.I.
