38th International Jazzfestival Saalfelden

Enrico Bettinello By

Eve Risser' White Desert Orchestra blew the roof off Congress Hall. The original tentet shed new light to the beautiful scores of French pianist Eve Risser, with a telepathic humanity capable of evoking glittering soundscapes as convincingly as Zappaesque funkiness. Flutist Sylvaine Helary, guitarist Julien Desprez, brillian trumpet player Eivind Lønning, poignant alto saxophone Antonin-Tri Hoang, as well as elegant bassoon player Sara Schoenbeck, trombonist Fidel Fourneyron, saxophonist Benjamin Dousteyssier and Eve Risser herself, literally danced on the scores, backed by the rhythm section composed of Luc Ex and Yuko Oshima. They literally brought the 20th Century classical European tradition back to life, and with an unquestionably futuristic feeling. Dazzling!
