Balke, Jon - Diverted Travels


Lägg till önskelista + 189 kr - Ej i lager

"Norwegian composer/pianist Balke creates a remarkable evocation of his homeland by combining the fluttering dissonances of freeform jazz with rootsy violins and percussion. His spicily percussive yet spacious piano-playing dovetails neatly with the trumpet of the other main soloist, Per Jorgensen. But it is the scoring for violins that makes this album special. Played with verve, it gives the music structure and emotional depth, whether menacingly out of tempo or driving the ensemble with riffs that would do Count Basie proud."
(Financial Times)

"The eight members of Jon Balke's Magnetic North Orchestra include bass and two percussionists, but add trumpet, sax, two violins and Balke's keyboards, and there's an ensemble with a surely unique sound. Woodsy textures and the thrumming of palms and fingers on drumskins are blended with the sharp chatter of horns, the leader's needle-fine piano commentaries and a faint background burble of electronics. As the album's title suggests, the 14 pieces make up a fascinating journey."
(BBC Music Magazine)
