About this project
was recorded at Skyline Studio in New York in
1992. Enja Records released it internationally in 1994. It was reissued in 2005 by ArtistShare. Along with the Evanescence
ArtistShare participants will be able to see a very in depth video of Maria
looking back on what she now remembers about the creation of the music on Evanescence
We also include a little movie of wonderful photos taken at that session by photographer, Tom Bloom. You can be sure that we all look a lot younger.
In 2010, DOWNBEAT chose
to honor Evanescence
by putting it on its list of the 25 best big band albums of
all time. Decades later, we still perform most of this music. We have
included a version of "Dance You Monster to My Soft Song" that was
recorded in 2014. It features Dave Pietro on alto, and Greg Gisbert and
Mike Rodriguez on trumpet.
