Hubbard's "Skeleton Key Orchestra" is a less serious, more raucous turn featuring lots of group improvs in a large band -- big fun. To hear a more directly jazzy side of Hubbard, check out the band Cosmologic. (Both in our library.)
1- Fast tumbling solo piano madness
2- Collage of voices, electronics, and odd music. Appropriately Cage-ian.
3- Floaty chamber feel, mid/fast
4- Jazzy: Mid/fast clarinet and vibes, then a slow swirling phase
5- Electronic tones and sound effects; think Manhattan Research Inc. Periods of noise and quiet interspersed.
6- ROVA-like sax trio: Clean unison lines and squirrely group soloing
7- Jazzy sax, a friendly first half. Then crazier sounds over an electronics blender. Calm finish.
8- Slow, serious horns
1- Long landscape-like chords, ominous. Ends with soft horns.
2- Trio of saxes. Dissonant long tones, into squirrely interaction. Last few minutes get quiet.
3- Vocal sounds, often goofy/funny. Like performance art. Solo female vocalist, later with vibraphone/piano.
4- Quiet percussion clanging. Mostly pensive.
5- Gorgeous, slow, lush intro with piano; then percussion and vibes. (First 6.5 minutes are a good excerpt.) Then, some group work before a serious piano-led segment.
..... (-16:30) starts an short free-jazzy passage that leads into ceremonial percussion.
..... Last 10 minutes: Formal horns, samples of crowd sounds, electronics. Gets reasonably messy.
6- Slow, soft piece for piano and orchestra.
