Big Ears Festival
Knoxville, TN
March 23-26, 2017

Trygve Seim: Rumi Songs

Read "Rumi Songs" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Negli ultimi anni si sono moltiplicate in casa ECM produzioni nelle quali musicisti di estrazione jazz si uniscono ad altri di formazione classica per lavorare su progetti che a loro volta fondono il sacro e il profano, l'Occidente e l'Oriente. L'ultimo lavoro del sassofonista norvegese Trygve Seim appartiene senza dubbio a questo tipo di lavori, ma ...

Trygve Seim: Rumi Songs

Read "Rumi Songs" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Norwegian saxophonist Trygve Seim may lack the marquee status of countryman (and fellow ECM artist) Jan Garbarek. But he is no less adventurous, and has recently been popping up all over on 2016 ECM releases: on Mats Eilertsen's Rubicon; with Sinikka Langeland and the Trio Medieval on The Magical Forest; with Iro Haarla and symphony orchestra ...

Punkt Festival
Kick
Kristiansand, Norway
September 6-8, 2013

Punkt is back. Three simple words with greater significance. While the annual festival, which has made its name on the strength of two additional words--Live Remix--had an eighth edition in 2012 that, on paper, should have been nothing short of spectacular, it was ultimately ...

Lars Andreas Haug Band: Conrairo

Read "Conrairo" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

The new generation of Norwegian tuba players keep challenging this under-rated instrument. Two years ago it was the trio of Martin Taxt, Kristoffer Lo and Robin Hayward who investigated the timbre characteristics of the tuba on microtub (Sofa Music, 2011) and last year Lo explored the tuba as a sound source for dark and intense soundscapes ...

Dino Saluzzi / Anja Lechner / Felix Saluzzi: Navidad de los Andes

Read "Navidad de los Andes" reviewed by John Kelman

Most musicians work with a wide range of other collaborators over time, but only a precious few become so empathically close as to engender ongoing relationships. It's no surprise that Argentinean bandoneonist Dino Saluzzi has continued to work with his brother, saxophonist/clarinetist Felix, their genetic bond clearly apparent on Dino Saluzzi Group recordings like Juan Condori ...
