DYAD Plays Jazz Arias


The emotion of classical opera arias transformed by the innovation of jazz!

Alto saxophonist Lou Caimano and pianist Eric Olsen are among the most innovative musical talents to fuse the two great art forms, opera arias and jazz.  On their newest CD, Dyad Plays Jazz Arias, they transform well-known operatic arias into uniquely imaginative jazz compositions.


Dyad Plays Jazz Arias features favorite operatic arias re-imagined with brilliant originality and breathtaking skill. Veteran jazz masters Randy Brecker on trumpet and flugelhorn, and Ted Nash on tenor saxophone, join Eric and Lou on this exemplary recording. Arias from Bizet's Carmen to Mozart's Champagne Aria are among the featured arrangements.


Dyad Plays Jazz Arias is a gorgeous, moving album that will appeal to both jazz and classical aficionados. It features brilliant performances with arrangements that pay homage to the originals, but allow the players full expression in the jazz idiom.
