First composed for a 1956 recording session in a smaller setting, “Fontainebleau” was the reworked by Dameron for his 1962 comeback album “The Magic Touch”, this time for a big band. The work is a through-composed short suite, that features Dameron’s gracious writing at its best. A classic that may never get old!
