Evoking the Roaring Twenties, Chicago composer Leo Sowerby’s engaging and ingenious Synconata (1924) and Symphony for Jazz Orchestra (Monotony) (1925) — critically praised for their distinctive harmony, counterpoint and humor — receive world-premiere recordings by Chicago bandleader-trombonist Andrew Baker and his Andy Baker Orchestra. Rounding out the program are chamber compositions from the same period, including Sowerby’s String Quartet in D Minor, Serenade for String Quartet and Tramping Tune for piano and strings.
