Concert in the Garden is the fourth studio album by American jazz composer Maria Schneider. The album was released in 2004 by ArtistShare and won the Grammy Award for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album in 2005.

Background

Schneider's three previous albums were nominated for Grammy Awards, but the previous one, Allégresse, was released four years before Concert in the Garden. The delay has been attributed to the financial difficulty of recording with large groups, which are required for the music that Schneider writes.[3]

Compared to previous albums, this album is more classical than jazz, with a greater influence of Brazilian, Spanish, and flamenco music.[3]

Reception

The JazzTimes review was mostly positive, stating, "Three Romances" and "Buleria, Solea y Rumba" "are revelatory in their complete realization", but the solos on the other pieces "are not strong enough to provide sufficient contrast to the piece's slow, hovering progress".[3]

The Penguin Guide to Jazz gave the album a maximum four stars and added it to the book's Core Collection. Penguin stated that "Concert in the Garden" was a weakness, but overall the album was "the great achievement of her career so far."[2]
