Parker, Evan - Boustrophedon

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar

"Parker wanted to locate a space between Gil Evans and Luigi Nono. The way the music travels from string-dominated sections with finely etched textures and broad, irregular intervals to ones with propulsive rhythms and multihued brass and woodwind passages, he makes good on his intentions. ... This record, like its companion, goes a long way toward reconciling contemporary jazz and classical music without selling either short."

"Drawing its inspiration from the ancient art of manuscript writing (where lines would run from left to right, then right to left, as if furrowing a field) together with a nod of appreciation to the writings of novelist/playwright Samuel Beckett and composer/conductor/music writer Nicolas Slonimsky, this involving and intricately constructed suite of music sets Parker's role as a modern composer to the fore. Boustrophodon is also a giant step forward for jazz music that underlines the fact that it is a genre of music without limitations."

Evan Parker and Roscoe Mitchell co-founded the Transatlantic Art Ensemble in 2004. The ensemble's account of Mitchell's "Composition/Improvisation Nos. 1, 2 & 3" was issued by ECM to critical acclaim (including an album-of-the-year award from France's Jazzman). "Boustrophedon", featuring Evan Parker's music, is the companion volume. Like nothing else in Parker's discography it features him as composer-conductor, guiding the transatlantic instrumental forces into chamber orchestral territory "somewhere between Gil Evans and Luigi Nono". There is also, amongst many highlights, some transcendent saxophone playing - from both Parker and Mitchell. Recorded live in Munich.
