Matt Savage’s Master’s Recital- “Bolero” by Maurice Ravel

Here’s another video from my Master’s degree recital at Manhattan School of Music… it’s a jazz rendition of a 20th-century classical music masterpiece, Maurice Ravel’s “Bolero.”

This was recorded on April 10, 2015 in Manhattan School of Music’s Miller Recital Hall; it was the “grand finale” of the recital and was the only song of the show to feature all seven musicians at once. I hope to play this piece again soon, in this arrangement… although it’s a long one with a lot of instruments!
