Anne Mette Iversen: Invincible Nimbus

Read "Invincible Nimbus" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Given the sometimes Euro-chamber sounding approach to Denmark's Berlin-based bassist/composer Anne Mette Iversen's thoroughly interactive music, when she wants to have some fun, the music moves more to the freedom swing of Charles Mingus and the rhythmic conjurings of Dave Holland.

Anne Mette Iversen's Ternion Quartet: Invincible Nimbus

Read "Invincible Nimbus" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Anne Mette Iversen's Ternion Quartet is a frisky, loosely controlled ensemble with a fierce drive that recalls Charles Mingus' small groups. Iversen and drummer Roland Schneider push the music relentlessly forward while the front line of saxophonist Silke Eberhard and trombonist Geoffroy De Masure carouse boisterously on the top.

Iversen's themes carry traces ...

Silke Eberhard Trio: The Being Inn

Read "The Being Inn" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Quarantacinque anni, tedesca di Heidenheim an der Brenz (ma ormai di stanza a Berlino), Silke Eberhard guida da alcuni anni il trio protagonista di questo album, diretto, corporeo, al cui interno il suo contralto (più di rado il clarone) si distende con estrema libertà, di misura e di dizione, con un senso della forma che definiremmo ...
