'New Works' is an original 50-minute continuous work composed by Andrew Murray. Having spent the last decade writing contemporary originals and jazz standard arrangements for big band, 'New Works' sees Murray utilising these skills in a song-writers context. Murray presents on a large-ensemble scale, songs he has written concerning defeat, confusion, fear, loss and death, all played out with the drama and passion that only big band orchestration has to offer.
