Extraordinary 3-Disc Anthology "OUT ON THE COAST" from Composer/Arranger David Angel and Tuba Virtuoso Jim Self

DAVID ANGEL is one of the most respected composer/arrangers on the West Coast; however, he is virtually unknown to the general public. That is why tuba and bass trombone master JIM SELF decided it was time to rectify that situation. He brought together The David Angel Jazz Ensemble to record OUT ON THE COAST, a gorgeous three-disc anthology of Angelís music. The David Angel Jazz Ensemble grew out of the rehearsal band that Angel began in 1969. Over the years, the group featured many West Coast jazz giants. Angelís current 13-member ensemble of top-notch players were more than happy to participate in this project. Recorded right before the pandemic hit, the band laid down all 22 tracks in just four days. OUT ON THE COAST features 15 original compositions by Angel and his arrangements of seven standards. Angel wrote so many great charts, it was difficult to narrow them down to fit on one disc, so he culled 22 tunes from his extensive oeuvre and burned them onto three discs. The music ranges from swinging to symphonic, from Latin-tinged to jazz waltzes to West Coast cool. Written over many years, the compositions and arrangements on OUT ON THE COAST provide a very satisfying glimpse of the prolific output and brilliance of David Angel, who never sought out and has never received wide public recognition. This project should change that, and itís about time.
