John Wolf Brennan - Daniele Patumi: Time Jumps - Space Cracks
Recorded at an arts museum in Switzerland, the duo infuses easy to grasp, melodious pronouncements with chamber and avant-garde jazz sensibilities. However, pianist John Wolf Brennan (Ireland) and bassist Daniele Patumi (Italy) also intermix non-Western modalities into this beautifully constructed program. Known for their work with the multinational quartet, “Pago Libre,” the artists render interesting variations of generally, tuneful themes augmented by prepared bass and piano digressions. On, “Suite Arabique,” Patumi dishes out a pattern of complex bass lines for a work that is all about budding undercurrents and slightly ominous implications. Here, Brennan plucks and glides across his grand piano strings as the duo supplies us with a multitude of contrasting tonalities and counteracting statements. Whereas Brennan eventually alters the chemistry of this suite, thanks to his lyrically enticing work on melodica.

Putting some of the austere implications aside, this is a surprisingly accessible affair! Largely due to the musicians’ cunning ingenuity and penchant for incorporating harmonious arrangements into the grand scheme of things. Strongly recommended.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
