Last Dance – New Music for Jazz Orchestra by Ed Partyka. Compositions and arrangements by Ed Partyka, artistic director and chief conductor of the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra, tailored to the expanded composition of the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra.

On this album UMO’s expanded instrumentation consists of an acoustic rhythm section, five trumpets, French horn, three trombones, tuba and all five saxophone players doubling admirably on a wide variety of woodwind instruments, from flute to contrabass clarinet (and almost everything in-between). Thanks to this impressive array of instruments in the hands of the outstanding musicians of UMO, the soundscape of the album is lush and fervent and Partyka’s sonorous voicings and rich harmonies provide a warm and luxurious orchestral cushion for melancholy melodies and expressive improvised solos.

The album was created in the exceptional circumstances forced by the pandemic and was recorded in Helsinki in the autumn of 2020.
