Sketches (Munich) by Amina Figarova

Editor's Comments
What a joyous tune. An excellent example of how jazz can simultaneously be both traditional and fresh. There is no doubting that this song is jazz pure and simple, and despite its recognition of where the music form has come from, Amina's ensemble finds a way to find its own voice to express it. Excellent.

On Sketches, Amina and company revel in a rich and varied program. The album concentrates, though, on the central aspect of her stylistic grasp, which extends from avant-garde experiments (as in "September Suite", reflecting her shock and sadness at terrorist attacks on American soil) to multi-keyboard fusion-oriented funk (on "Another Me"). Always, her compositions are infused with grace, color and warmth, her solos with confident wit and her fellow musicians' contributions with passionate originality.

Personnel: Amina Figarova (piano), Bart Platteau (flutes), Ernie Hammes (trumpet), Marc Mommaas (tenor sax), Jeroen Vierdag (bass), Chris "Buckshot" Strik (drums).
