JazzWerkstatt Releases

Dave Liebman
Cover of Dave Liebman

From JazzWerkstatt has a set of four releases coming out on November 16:

THE DAVE LIEBMAN GROUP
TURNAROUND / THE MUSIC OF ORNETTE COLEMAN
In Ornette’s music there is a joyful spirit which permeates throughout and explains why people love his art as they do. His music expresses an irrepressible joie de vivre, uplifting and mournful at the same time, playful and deadly serious-a full view of the human condition. With deep respect to a true individualist and master of his art, I hope you enjoy our Ornette Coleman voyage. — Dave Liebman, September 2009

THE ULLMANN/SWELL 4
NEWS? NO NEWS!
The voice coming from The Ullmann/Swell Quartet is saying listen, feel, and become the goal in these sonic excursions is to explore music in all of its moods, colors and shapes. There is also a strong investment in silence, space, and texture. The compositions are delivered in ten installments, four pieces written by Gebhard Ullmann, two collective composed pieces and four songs composed by Steve Swell. — William Parker, April 9, 2009

PERRY ROBINSON TRIO
FROM A TO Z
Perry Robinson is a musician’s musician. He has been one of the most productive protagonists of the jazz scene for over half a century, and his creativity is still in demand internationally. If the public at large is less aware of his name than of his colleagues Ornette Coleman and Carla Bley, the reason may be that his instrument, the clarinet, is associated with the heyday of Benny Goodman, the king of swing. But Robinson’s roots run far deeper. They reach back into folk and blues, the ground water of American music, and to a time long before the division into old-time vs. avant-garde and black vs. white. This is the basis out of which, over the decades, a mighty trunk grew up and put out a crown of widely spreading branches. In other words, Perry Robinson tells living stories in that most universal of languages, music. From A to Z… — Tobias Richtsteig

CHRIS DAHLGREN & LEXICON
MYSTIC MAZE
The music of Mystic Maze is based upon a selection written critiques against the music of the great composer Béla Bartók, who lived from 1881-1945. I wanted, in my own way, to vilify some of the very critics who judged Bartók?s incredible music so harshly by turning their own words against them- in other words, to turn their words into music.
