Bill Simenson Orchestra at Jazz Central Studios

A midyear contender for the best local jazz disc of 2017 is “Big Alpaca” by the Bill Simenson Orchestra. Mixing splash and sophistication in a manner akin to ’50s swing-bop ensembles, Simenson canvasses a dynamic range of moods and textures over the course of a dozen original songs with his 17-piece.
