Mocna jazzowa załoga pod silnym wezwaniem!

To już druga płyta w opcji all inclusive, jaką w ostatnim czasie portugalski Clean Feed nas uraczył. Po trzypłytowym Gard Nilssen's Acoustic Unity "Live in Europe" otrzymujemy oto trzypłytowe wydawnictwo sygnowane przez doskonale znanych fanom kreatywnego jazzu muzyków. Kjetil Moster (tenor saxophone, clarinet), Martin Küchen (alto saxophone, flute), Mats Aleklint (trombone), Ola Hoyer (double bass) i Dag Erik Knedal Andersen (drums). Są to muzycy, którzy przez lata wypracowali własny styl i brzmienie. Nazwy Angles, The Core i Cortex, czyli grup, tworzonych przez tych muzyków są wyraźnie widoczne w gęstej pajęczynie bardzo dobrych jazzowych składów.

Co łączy The Heat Death z muzyką Glenna Millera?
Tylko lektura tych trzech krążków przyniesie odpowiedź, choć i ona będzie się zmieniała z każdym odsłuchem.
Bo czy chodzi o orkiestrowe podejście tego kwintetu, czy o rodzaj organizacji zbiorowych interakcji, czy też o efekt, jaki daje podwojenie instrumentów... łączników okazuje się być wiele.
Pewne jest, że nie znajdziecie tutaj swingowego brzmienia Glenn Miller Orchestra, swobodna muzyka improwizowana skręcająca w stronę free jazzu, czasami napędzana afrykańskimi rytmami, przypominająca w tym Chris McGregor's Brotherhood of Breath, by za chwilę zaskoczyć powtarzalną, "motoryczną" równowagą krautrocka, nie jest to w końcu takie dziwne, przecież perkusista Can - Jaki Liebezeit był oryginalnym członkiem Globe Unity Orchestra Alexandra von Schllipenbacha.

Powstała muzyka, która razi jak prądem, niewiele ma podobieństw do tego, co dotąd powstało, a z pewnością mamy do czynienia z potężną dawką porażającej energii termodynamicznej, muzycy w ciągłym zwarciu, wet za wet, jednak w tym szaleństwie trzymają się zasad grawitacji, mają solidny kontakt z podłożem. Kjetil Moster, Martin Küchen i Mats Aleklint dokonują tu sonorystycznych cudów, iskrzy między nimi, kunszt sekcji rytmicznej w osobach Olego Hoyera i Daga Erika Knedala Andersena można po prostu podziwiać, z jaką swobodą odnajdują azymut w tej gęstej, kipiącej energią pajęczynie dźwięków, chwilami przejmując rytmiczne stery tego "statku szaleńców"...

Trzy kosmiczne dęciaki zderzone z energetyczną sekcją mogą istotnie zmienić Wasze podejście do free jazzu. Ekstatyczna, gęsta i ekspresyjna muzyka skandynawskiego kwintetu, wyniesiona drogą konstruktywnej improwizacji, na kosmiczny szczyt to po prostu majstersztyk!

Editor's info:
With members of The Core, Angles 9, Cortex, &c. The Heat Death is a Norwegian quintet with dual reeds and winds from Kjetil Moster & Martin Kuchen, Mats Aleklint on trombone, Olay Hoyer on bass, and Dag Erik Knedal Andersen on drums, a blazing band of energetic, informed and joyful free improv in a long-anticipated releases presenting 3 CDs of extended play.

We didn’t see (or, more exactly, heard) this coming. How could we expect a band like The Heat Death to turn their attention to the music of Glenn Miller? But here it is, once again confirming the notion that everything is possible when coming from the Scandinavian scene. Truth is that this quintet always had an orchestral approach, in the organization of the collective inputs and due to the doubling of instruments, Kjetil Moster playing clarinet besides his tenor saxophone and Martin Küchen turning to the flute when not playing the alto sax, summing up with the presence of a pasting trombone (Mats Aleklint) to unite every part, but what they use to do was miles way from the swing big band Miller’s sound: a free improvised music metamorphing to free jazz, sometimes with African rhythms, reminding us of Chris McGregor’s Brotherhood of Breath, and sometimes with the repetitive, “motorik” balance of krautrock, not so strange when we think that Can’s drummer, Jaki Liebezeit, was an original member of Alexander von Schllipenbach’s Globe Unity Orchestra. But here it is, introducing a new form to understand the problem with thermodynamic energy known by science as “the heat death”. If there was a compositional factor in the way this group used to improvise, finding structures when there wasn’t one, now they deal with it in a more committed way. Of course, the resulting music has few resemblances to what the Glenn Miller Orchestra continue to do until this day, but the spirit is there, exploring aspects which were implicit, but never fulfilled, with all the respect to the historic figure who conceived it. Prepare yourself to be surprised.

“The Heat Death” is one of the newest album, released by “Clean Feed Records” this year. Album was recorded by “The Glenn Miller Sessions” – this ensemble members are Kjetil Moster (tenor saxophone and clarinet), Martin Küchen (alto saxophone and flute), Mats Aleklint (trombone), Ola Hoyer (double bass) and Dag Erik Knedal Andersen (drums). These interesting and original jazz masters have their own and unique playing manner, their playing and improvising is dedicated for musical experiments and the search of unusual sounds and timbres. The musicians are active and famous members of avant-garde jazz scene – they are always collaborating in various projects with the other masters of experimental jazz. Improvisations, played by “The Glenn Miller Sessions” are full of unpredictable stylistic waves, turns and have especially bright and evocative musical language. Pleasant surprises, free and astonishing musical experiments, marvelous synthesis between various jazz styles, Africa and the other countries ethnic music elements and different music styles alwats create effective and innovative sound.

This album has original, surprising and unpredictable sound. It’s based on synthesis between avant-garde jazz, bebop and other modern jazz styles, swing, the basic elements of big band sound, Africa and the other world countries music elements. All these different and contrasting music styles are marvelously and organically connected together. Four marvelous and impressive avant-garde jazz masters fuse together their own and unique improvising, original playing manner and demonstrate innovative and bright Scandinavian avant-garde jazz. This music is full of many different playing manners, innovative methods of playing, colorful scales, shocking and contrasting dynamics, different harmony chords and pitches and other musical language elements. Each composition differs from the others – it has its own style and musical language. Bright, solid and colorful melodic pattern is deeply contrasting with independent and powerful rhythmic section. Alto and tenor saxophones, flute and clarinet melodies by Kjetil Moster and Martin Kuchen have marvelous, expressive and dynamic sound. Impressive solos, attaching and gorgeous sound, sharp, loud and powerful blow outs, nostalgic, soft and lyric episodes, memorable and attractive riffs and many other elements bring energetic and live sound to these compositions. These two musicians are improvising especially expressive, emotionally, passionately and attractive – they try out innovative and extended playing techniques, switch by various jazz styles, music language elements and always try to extract unusual timbres. Double bass melodies by Ola Hoyer have subtle and dynamic sound. Virtuosic passages, vibrant and dynamic solos, joyful and playful pizzicato, sudden and colorful glissando – that’s just a part of the numerous different playing techniques, which this improviser is using. Ola Hoyer improvises spontaneously, free, with passion and masterful virtuosity. African rhythms, swing, bebop, cool, post-bop, hard-bop, free rhythmic improvisations, creative and expressive drum solos – all these elements are heard very clearly in the drum section improvisations by Dag Erik Knedal Andersen. This improviser masterfully combines together all different rhythmic formulas, sounds, unusual timbres and various types of rhythms. The improvisations in all 3 CD’s have dynamic and surprising sound. From romantic and soft swing these improvisations suddenly turn out to turbulent and rapid free collective improvisations, furious and wild fast modern jazz compositions or get more similar to contemporary jazz or traditional jazz compositions. Sometimes these improvisation’s sound is more similar to traditional jazz and and have all basic elements of big bands, sometimes – it’s masterful, active, spontaneous and fascinating free jazz improvisations with outstanding solos and musical experiments. Whole sound of this album is innovative and original – marvelous synthesis of various jazz styles, extended playing techniques and bright musical language helps musicians to create it.
