EXCERPTS FROM AN EARLY REVIEW

"With 'Invocation: Jazz Meets the Symphony #7', Lalo Schifrin has underlined his penchant for fusing symphonic and jazz music. This special display of his virtuosic conducting and arranging skills will surely entertain you as well as re-introduce you to the critically acclaimed 'Jazz Meets the Symphony' series."

"One of the major highlights on this recording is Schifrin's own 'Etude in Rhythm.' It is a powerful, straight ahead jazz piece with the orchestra swinging hard. Schifrin's amazing piano solo brings back memories of his work with Dizzy Gillespie's quartet as pianist/arranger before pianist Kenny Barron replaced him! This composition is the pièce de résistance."
