I was born into a classical music household. My mother, Phyllis Mansfield Carlini, was a brilliant pianist, student of Harold Bauer, and on the faculty of the Manhattan School of Music. My father, Luigi Carlini, was a violinist in the New York Philharmonic for 25 years. I have a lifetime love for classical music and for all of the “Great Composers”.
Classical music in all of its forms is incredible ground for interpretation through the prism of jazz arranging. This recording of my impressions of Maurice Ravel‘s master work, Bolero, was done first on score paper, and then played into Logic on my Godin ACS.
