Theo Jorgensmann: Bucksch

Revered German clarinetist Theo Jorgensmann has played an integral role in the European free jazz scene and is one of several artists who helped revitalize the instrument within avant-garde flanked jazz and improvisational vistas. Here, the artist predominately performs solo works on his G-low clarinet, yet unites with his trio culled from a live performance in Luneburg, Germany on the aptly titled "Interweave Thoughts."

This musical portraiture duly mirrors the suggestion of a dynamic interweaving of thoughts, featuring a complementary perspective, delivered by his cohorts, acoustic guitarist Hagen Studemann and bassist Christian Sydney Ramond. Indeed, it's a free- form endeavor, but Ramond's swerving arco lines transmit a sweeping and winding foundation for the soloists. He basically tenders the interweaving cog for Jorgensmann and Sydney's expanding and contracting articulations. And the guitarist's closed handed harmonics projects a colorific additive as Jorgensmann wavers the pitch and melds melodic intervals into the grand schema. Here, the trio gels within an oscillating and asymmetrical climate that pronounces a vibrantly inferred meeting of the minds. As the group format signals a contrasting vista to the leader's swinging, bopping and at times, unconventional solo jaunts, dispersed throughout the track mix.

Personnel: Theo Jorgensmann: G-low clarinet; Hagen Studemann: acoustic guitar; Christian Sydney: bass.
