"Windfeld har förmågan att prägla hela klangen hos en stor orkester"
(Johannes Cornell, DN)


Composing for Bohuslän Big Band has been a great challenge and pleasure.
Having the individual musicians and the overall band sound in mind, I tried to shape the music in a way that highlights the specific qualities of each band member.
Instead of limiting the writing to a specific theme, I just let my ideas flow and went to the piano to write whenever an idea arose.
The outcome is seven pretty different pieces, tied together by the band’s sound and the limited period of time it all was created within, reflecting my take on contemporary big band music anno 2020.
Developing the tunes over time with inputs from the musicians has been very inspiring. I want to express a deep gratitude for great times in the rehearsal room, on stage and in the studio.
High ambitions and wonderful enthusiasm made the optimal
conditions for making music together with this outstanding orchestra.

– Kathrine Windfeld

Franska "Citizen Jazz" recenserar: https://www.citizenjazz.com/Kathrine-Windfeld-Bohuslan-Big-Band.html

There are rumblings here and there that a composer, arranger and conductor is doing some superb things, and it would not be surprising if her name were to become a fixture in this extremely rich tradition. What is certain is that when listening to her discs, fans will find a strong resemblance to the work done by the immense and prodigious Maria Schneider. It is certainly a caricature to associate these two conductors and one would quickly create a thread between them because they are both women in addition to conducting bands, arranging and composing. It would be a big mistake not to mention this connection because of the risk of falling into a genre bias.

Because, yes and three times yes, there is a direct link between these two musicians. We invite the listener to compare Kathrine Windfeld's Determination and, for example, Schneider's Concert in the Garden. One could easily find great similarities. First of all, the orchestrations, even though Schneider's work features a voice and an accordion. The same skilful writing, the same architecture which mixes a succession of motifs and a traditional jazz base where the soloists follow one another, the same management of volume between moments with a somewhat evanescent character and others where the orchestra rolls, winds and carries away. We had the opportunity to enjoy Latency and Orca, his last two albums, and before that, Aircraft, which opened the way to a discography that is presumably very rich: and for good reason, four orchestral albums in six years! This one is another treat, the title of which perhaps echoes this bulimia of writing. This same delight is perhaps due to an orchestration that doesn't change a bit between the different projects. With Orca and almost with Latency, we already found a formation between a section of saxophones, another of trumpets and a last one of trombones, while the rhythm section was made up of a piano - his own, by the way, and unlike Schneider who delegates - a bass and a drum kit. This is certainly a recipe for Windfeld's approach.

In any case, in seven tracks, Windfeld and the Bohuslän Big Band offer an extremely delicate album behind which Maria Schneider's touch is evident. And when you follow in someone's footsteps, you might as well choose a great talent. And that is precisely what happens here.
