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...


Markus Lauterburg: Mumur

AAJ Italy Staff By

Curioso organico: batteria, basso elettrico, chitarra, violoncello e sax soprano. Verrebbe da pensare ad atmosfere cameristiche, ad una certa qual levità. E invece la musica di Mumur è spesso carica di elettricità, di vera e propria tensione. Soprattutto nella prima parte dell'album, in cui solo la prima delle tre Bliss (tracce collettive, improvvisate) marca una pausa da atmosfere nervose e dinamicamente compresse verso l'alto in modo persino eccessivo.

Dalla seconda Bliss, invece, l'album si acquieta. Guadagnandone in varietà e profondità. Rispetto alle prime tracce, sembra quasi un altro disco. Decisamente più riuscito, con alcuni momenti (come Labyrinth) di sicuro interesse.

Track Listing: 01. Elf (Markus Lauterburg); 02. Horizont (Markus Lauterburg); 03. Bliss I (A. Pflugshaupt, D. Gisler, M. Birnstiel, U. Lienert, M. Lauterburg); 04. Das tapfere Schneiderlein (Markus Lauterburg); 05. Melee (Markus Lauterburg); 06. But Where? (Markus Lauterburg); 07. Bliss II (A. Pflugshaupt, D. Gisler, M. Birnstiel, U. Lienert, M. Lauterburg); 08. Labyrinth (Markus Lauterburg); 09. Bliss III (A. Pflugshaupt, D. Gisler, M. Birnstiel, U. Lienert, M. Lauterburg); 10. Trip In Space (Markus Lauterburg); 11. Wiegenlied (Markus Lauterburg).

Personnel: Adrian Pflugshaupt (sax soprano), Dave Gisler (chitarra), Martin Birnstiel (violoncello), Urban Lienert (basso elettrico), Markus Lauterburg (batteria).

Title: Mumur | Year Released: 2009
