Maria Schneider has a handsome collection of Grammys to her name, and the accolades are well deserved: This protégée of the late bandleading/arranging genius Gil Evans fronts the most polished modern jazz orchestra on the planet, a vehicle for her lush, intricate and refreshingly accessible works. Here, you'll hear material from Schneider's latest ArtistShare-funded venture, The Thompson Fields.
