For more than two decades, beginning with her orchestra’s debut album Evanescence (1994), composer/conductor Maria Schneider has developed a deeply personal way of writing for her seventeen–member collective; like Duke Ellington, she has tailored her compositions to highlight the individually expressive voices of her soloists. In July 2018, Maria Schneider was awarded the highest honor in jazz, as a recipient of the 2019 Jazz Masters Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. “The enduring popularity of Schneider’s jazz orchestra is a combination of many factors—including the ingenuity of her compositions and arrangements, and the superlative musicianship of her ensemble—but the openhearted lyricism that imbues all of her work may be the most winning component.” (The New Yorker)

    “To call Maria Schneider the most important woman in jazz is missing the point,” said TIME Magazine. “She is a major composer, period.” For more than two decades, beginning with her orchestra’s debut album Evanescence (1994), Schneider has developed a deeply personal way of writing for the seventeen–member collective; like Duke Ellington, she has tailored her compositions to highlight the uniquely creative voices of her soloists. Schneider and her orchestra have established a distinguished recording career with nine GRAMMY nominations and two GRAMMY Awards; her 2004 album Concert in the Garden made his­tory as the first recording sold only on the Internet to win a GRAMMY. “Schneider's management of such technical elements as harmonic shading and thematic modulation is impeccable. Far more important is her gift for creating music identical with emotion. . . she has lived long enough to look back on her life through time’s fading light, and to have known change, including the passing of much that she loved. Music is her means of holding on to what would otherwise be lost. It is everyone’s hope.” Come and welcome her back for her annual residency at Jazz Standard. (Stereophile)
