Sasha Matson’s jazz opera Cooperstown, to a libretto by the composer and Mark Miller, is an inventive and winning chamber opera scored for a jazz quintet and five soloists...Composer Sasha Matson...has written an infectious score, inspired by 1950s jazz quintet sound...He conducts the excellent quintet with an astute feeling for both the transparency of the work and the compelling rhythmic thrust...The performance recorded first-class, with excellent instrumentalists...and luxury casting for the five roles...Highly recommended to jazz and opera lovers alike - not to mention baseball fans!
