The Painted Lady Suite, the debut album by the Michael Leonhart Orchestra (MLO) is inspired by the butterfly of the same name. While Leonhart was initially attracted to its flamboyant coloration and wing ornamentation, it was the butterfly’s incredible migration, which spans over six generations and 9,000 miles - twice that of the Monarch butterfly, that inspired the andleader to write his Painted Lady Suite. In addition to the Suite, the album features three of the earliest compositions Leonhart wrote specifically for MLO. In the Kingdom of MQ is a swaggering march featuring an electrifying solo by Donny McCaslin and is a tribute to Leonhart’s young son.
Artist: Michael Leonhart Orchestra. Album: The Painted Lady Suite. Lady Suite 1500 Feet Above the Sahara (Day) 08 – In the Kingdom of .
Ispirandosi alle migrazioni delle farfalle Painted Lady, Michael Leonhart ha composto una maestosa suite in due parti e sette movimenti, timbricamente ammaliante e di grande forza evocativa. La scrittura di quest'opera rievoca immediatamente la scrittura impressionista del grande arrangiatore canadese e in particolare The Individualism of Gil Evans: un soffice gioco di combinazioni timbriche che si espandono in forme dilatate, con lente o ipnotiche variazioni armoniche e ritmiche che sostengono lunghi assoli. Ha inciso sei album a suo nome e in ambito jazz ha collaborato principalmente con Bill Frisell, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Arto Lindsay e Nels Cline. Ed è proprio dal lavoro di orchestratore e direttore per quest'ultimo chitarrista, nella raffinata incisione di Lovers (Blue Note, 2016), che è sorto in Leonhart l'idea di approfondire l'esperienza con una grande orchestra jazzistica.
