Maria Schneider is a leading American jazz composer and big band conductor who have most often been praised by the European critics and audiences. Her music has been hailed as magical, evocative, and beyond categorization all over the world. She has also been recognized as the ‘Best Jazz Composer’ in the music industry. Schneider in her decades’ long career has given live performances at festivals and concert halls in association with 85 groups from over thirty countries. These include Europe, Australia, South America, North America and Asia. With this repute in the music industry, Maria Schneider Orchestra tickets don’t last long in the inventories and are gone in the shortest time following the schedule of her concerts.
Maria Schneider’s music blurs the lines between genres. The artist taking the influence from the well known musicians of the industry like Duke Ellington, writes thematically with a specific artist in mind. Songs of her Grammy Award winning album, ‘Concert in the Garden’ is specifically inspired by the solos of Ben Monder, Rich Perry, Charles Pillow and Larry Farrell. With Schneider’s seamless compositions it is hard to decide whether it is her improvisation or a well thought out creative piece. Since the start of her career, she has released seven studio albums with ‘Winter Morning Walks’ as her recent one. The artist has a record of success from the release of her first studio album to date with none going without audience’s appreciation and critical praise.
Wondering what is the secret behind Schneider’s expertise in music? The artist took up piano and music theory at the tender age of five. With regular lessons from a jazz pianist, she learnt the art of playing instruments differently and practiced it by performing in school. As soon as she completed her high school she was clear about her career choice. So she opted for a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Theory and Composition which taught her jazz and contemporary writing as well. During her educational years, Schneider got the opportunity to work with the well known artists like Bob Brookmeyer, a recognized jazz arranger/composer and a trombone player. She praises him for being her mentor and has stated, ‘He was the person who made my career happen’. Bookmeyer also has always appreciated Schneider’s talent with encouraging reviews such as, ‘She was already a fully developed writer when she came to me. I offered her professional and emotional support to continue giving her best. Also I encouraged her for her role as a woman in jazz music, since this genre had a history of being a male enclave.’ Her training didn’t end with just Brookmeyer, but later in her career, she also got the opportunity to work for Gil Evans, a well known composer, band leader and an arranger.
Maria Schneider so far in her recording career has earned nine Grammy nominations and two Grammy Awards. Her albums have been called ‘Jazz Album of the Year’ by Downbeat Critics Poll and Jazz Journalist Association.
Her music is not only loved by audiences but has been praised by credible publications like The New York Times in words, ‘Maria Schneider’s orchestral jazz is about feeling. Like Wayne Shorter, she knows how to express compassion through tone.’ And by Time Magazine with statements such as, ‘To call Schneider the most important woman in Jazz is missing the point. She is a major compose- period’. What do you think of the artist’s music? You have to listen to her live to form an opinion. Her upcoming concert is just around the corner and the demand for Maria Schneider Orchestra tickets is already high. So get your hands on them before they are all sold out.
