The Jazzpar Prize (album)
The Jazzpar Prize is an album by Pierre Dorge's New Jungle Orchestra with David Murray released on the Enja label in recognition of the awarding of the 1991 Danish Jazzpar Prize to Murray. The album was recorded in 1991 and released in 1992 and features performances by Murray, Pierre Dørge, Horace Parlan, Harry Beckett, Per Jörgensen, Jörg Huke, Jesper Zeuthen, Jacob Mygind, Irene Becker, Jens Skou Olsen, and Audun Kleive.
After Muhal Richard Abrams, who has the first recipient in 1990, Murray was chosen by a committee made up of Dan Morgenstern, Gary Giddins (USA), Philippe Carles (France), Bert Noglik (Germany), and Erik Wiedemann (Denmark). The band invited to accompany Murray was Pierre Dørge's New Jungle Orchestra; their first concert was March 13, 1991 in Copenhagen, repeated in Odense and Aarhus, before they made the studio recordings in Copenhagen.
Famous quotes containing the word prize:
“In the corrupted currents of this world
Offences gilded hand may shove by justice,
And oft tis seen the wicked prize itself
Buys out the law; but tis not so above:
There is no shuffling.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
