Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

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!
