Od debiutu płytowego Misha Mullova-Abbado minęło zaledwie 1,5 roku. A już otrzymujemy nowe nagranie tego utalentowanego kontrabasisty i kompozytora. Syn jednego z największych XX-wiecznych dyrygentów - Claudio Abbado i rosyjskiej skrzypaczki - Viktorii Mullovej muzykę ma we krwi. Pokazał to już na swojej pierwszej, docenionej na świecie płycie 'New Ansonia' z 2015 roku.

Teraz mam przed sobą płytę nagraną w septecie, zawierającą wyłącznie własne kompozycje lidera. Osiem utworów przepełnionych niemalże big bandowymi brzmieniami imponują swobodą i rozmachem. Jednak klasa tego albumu tkwi w każdej minucie, w szczegółach, a słuchanie go przynosi nie jedno doznanie, uruchamiające wyobraźnię słuchacza.
Jest to potężna porcja świetnej, zagranej chwilami porywająco, tak ciekawie czerpiącej z tradycji, co z nowoczesnych brzmień, a przy tym – całkiem przystępnej w odbiorze muzyki.
Przewrotnie można by powiedzieć, że żadna to nowa płyta, ale też nie stara. Gdzieś zawieszona w jazzowej czasoprzestrzeni. Takie płyty mogą wychodzić z głowy osobom, które jak Misha Mullova-Abbado "był otoczony muzyką od dnia narodzin, prawdziwym oceanem muzyki. Od Bacha, Byrda, Brahmsa, Stravinsky'ego, ale też Counta Basiego czy Stevie'ego Wondera. Bez tej muzyki po prostu bym nie istniał. Słuchanie jej przynosi wielką radość, jednak jeszcze większą przynosi pisanie własnej muzyki" - z liner notes do płyty 'New Ansonia'.

Editor's info:
London based bassist and composer Misha Mullov-Abbado burst onto the scene in 2015 with a debut album that prompted a stream of plaudits from international press and fans alike. New Ansonia, released on Edition in Sept 2015 and featuring wunderkind Jacob Collier, was described by the Daily Telegraph as an ‘unfailingly inventive, artfully produced, and delightfully sunny debut’ whilst Concerto Magazine in Austria commented ‘...this is the kind of album I expect of musicians who’ve spent more than 40 years on the Jazz stages of the world… Sensational debut !!!”. As the son of the late great Italian conductor Claudio Abbado and Russian violinist Viktoria Mullova, there was great anticipation about the album. Misha not only exceeded expectations but demonstrated that he is an instrumentalist and composer in his own right.

Cross-Platform Interchange, Misha’s second album, not only confirms his promise as a musician and composer of real depth and vision, but demonstrates his intention to do things his own way. Playing on his love of trains as well as the reciprocity and stylistic openness within his music, the album title perfectly symbolises the interconnectivity of inspiration in his life and music. With a commanding bass sound and bank of influences at his disposal, Misha has produced an album that will elevate his international career and generate a global fanbase. Bringing in producer Duncan Bridgeman has been a significant step in shaping the music. As Misha explains: ‘Bringing Duncan on board opened up a new world for me to develop ideas of using the studio more in the compositional process, achieving a warmer and more controlled sound as well as adding further elements, such as the additional percussion recorded in Israel that wouldn’t be there in a live context. For me this album represents that discovery, bringing together my inspirations into one world’.

All About Jazz - ocena * * * * 1/2:
As the son of the Italian classical conductor Claudio Abbado and Russian violinist Viktoria Mullova, music was inevitably in British bassist Misha Mullov-Abbado's blood. After graduating in music and composition from Gonville & Caius College, University of Cambridge he won a scholarship to study double bass at the Royal Academy of Music on its Masters jazz course tutored by virtuosos Jasper Hoiby and Michael Janisch amongst others. Cross-Platform Interchange is the follow-up to Mullov- Abbado's 2015 debut album New Ansonia, also on Edition Records.

In this chocolate box selection with thankfully no hard centres, Mullov-Abbado's opening salvo is "Shanti Bell," a blues- inflected double bass outing backed by subtle and unobtrusive percussion. This is followed by "No Strictly Dancing," the main theme of which already seems familiar. Sharing a passing resemblance to "Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ye" aka "When Johnny Comes Marching Home," its vitality and complexity develop in ensemble passages providing ample opportunity for strident trumpet soloing from James Davison.

Following on from the pastoral "Waves" comes the semi-pastiche of "Gromit's Grand Outing." Semi, because there are some seriously deft arrangements amongst the historical/hysterical references. In direct contrast, "Still, Hidden Morning" is an ambient acid jazz outing that imbues positively mesmeric qualities.

The smoky "Pure 100% Nunnery" again delves back into jazz's rich past courtesy of an augmented New Orleans style blues which gradually descends into mayhem before resolving once more into the catchy vamp and a corny ending. The soulful title track which benefits from luxuriant ensemble brass is followed by a lively, Latin-tinged "Hair Of The Bop," opening with a brisk double bass solo from Mullov-Abbado and ensued by a memorable ensemble melody.

Cross-Platform Interchange is a remarkably mature and accessible album, possessing both originality and variety. There's a touch of Mingusian similitude in many of the arrangements and compositions, which actually adds to their overall appeal. To follow in the footsteps of an innovative and legendary bass-playing bandleader and composer is obviously no bad thing but Mullov-Abbado already possesses his own unique musical vocabulary. Expect more surprises and delights from Mullov-Abbado in albums to come.
