Celebrating Rüegg’s life as an amazingly prolific jazz arranger and orchestrator, Universal Edition has just released A Centenary Journey, a compilation of the great charts by Rüegg in notated score form. A rarity in published music, these jazz scores “unlock the secrets” to phenomenal performances, echoing the evolution of jazz itself along the way. Students of the art (of any age) can now follow along with the written page, and see the music behind the experience, to study the process from concept to reality. The score includes an audio CD recording of select compositions, as well, performed by the Vienna Art Orchestra. An excellent overview of the development of jazz from 1900 to its present form(s).
