Alec Wilder - Gordon Stout, Robert Levy, Virginia Nanzetta, The Clarion Wind Quintet - Alec Wilder's Music For Marimba With Other Instruments (LP). Golden Crest, Golden Crest.
Alec Wilder is in the running for a dubious honor: most overlooked figure in 20th century music. There's a noble aspect, therefore, to this collection of Wilder's songs, all of which work quite well as vehicles for cutting-edge jazz improvisation. Guitarist and leader Vic Juris enlists Dave Liebman on tenor and soprano sax, Tim Hagans on trumpet, Steve LaSpina on bass, and Jeff Hirshfield on drums.
A wind quintet, also known as a woodwind quintet, is a group of five wind players (most commonly flute, oboe, clarinet, French horn and bassoon). Some quintets alternatively use an English horn instead of a French horn. The term also applies to a composition for such a group. Unlike the string quartet (of 4 string instruments) with its homogeneous blend of sound color, the instruments in a wind quintet differ from each other considerably in technique, idiom, and timbre.

Auf ihrem sechsten Album für ECM beschäftigen sich der italienische Pianist und sein Trio mit der Musik des amerikanischen Komponisten Alec Wilder (1907 – 1980). On his sixth album for ECM the Italian pianist Stefano Battaglia presents music with a special thematic focus: While his ECM debut Raccolto (2003) had honored his musical heroes Bill Evans and Paul Bley, Re:Pasolini (2007) was a tribute to the Italian filmmaker and polymath, and the compositions on The River of Anyder (2009) and Songways (2012) were mostly named after mythical.
On this album he engages with four of Wilder’s popular songs and three settings of poems, which he called art songs. Musically, there’s little difference between the two, since Wilder’s melodic obliqueness and fastidious touch are unmistakable in both. Battaglia’s trio catches the mood of the pieces very well, building a little atmospheric world around each with their improvisations. Interestingly, the two most impressive are art songs, settings of Christina Rossetti and WB Yeats. It’s as though a faint echo of the words lingers at the edges of the purely instrumental performance.
