Maria Schneider (born November 27, 1960) is an American composer and big-band-leader. Her 2004 album Concert in the Garden won a Grammy for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album,.

In 2013, Schneider released an album Winter Morning Walks featuring soprano Dawn Upshaw, the Saint Paul and Australian Chamber Orchestras, bassist Jay Anderson, pianist Frank Kimbrough and multi-instrumentalist Scott Robinson. In 2014 it won three Grammy Awards: Best Classical Contemporary Composition for the work Winter Morning Walks written to poetry by US Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize winner Ted Kooser. Dawn Upshaw received a Grammy for her vocal performance on the same recording, and producer David Frost and engineers Tim Martyn and Brian Losch all received Grammys for Best Engineered Album, Classical. The album fan-funded through ArtistShare is surely one of the first, if not the first album by major American orchestras...

This lady is brilliant! She has wisely absorbed so much from the phenomenal Gil Evans and now she is progressing down her own road establishing her unique identity. Adore 'Evanesence'.
