Firebird: Jazz Meets the Symphony No. 3 is an album by Argentine composer, pianist and conductor Lalo Schifrin with bassist Ray Brown, drummer Grady Tate, trumpeters Jon Faddis and James Morrison, saxophonist Paquito D'Rivera and the London Philharmonic Orchestra recorded in 1995 and released on the Four Winds label.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review stated "The third in Lalo Schifrin's series of grand fusions between the London Philharmonic and an all-star jazz combo is the most successful one yet. The immovable objects of symphony orchestra and jazz group are getting more closely in sync, thanks to the irresistible forces of Schifrin's long experience in both camps and his own luscious personal orchestral signatures... The whole thing is gorgeously and spaciously recorded; this should be a demonstration disc for hi-fi shows".[2]
