Maria Schneider and her orchestra have enjoyed a distinguished recording career, including earning nine Grammy nominations and two Grammy awards. Schneider’s music has been hailed by critics as “evocative, majestic, magical, heart-stoppingly gorgeous, and beyond categorization.” She and her orchestra became widely known starting in 1994 when they released their first recording, Evanescence. With that recording, Schneider began to develop her unique writing style for her 17-member collective, made up of many of the finest musicians in jazz today. Today, Schneider’s compositions continue to highlight the distinct creative voices of the group.
