Christophe Monniot – “Jericho Sinfonia” (aylCD-156)
This recording is a real novelty. Not only chronologically. This is a novelty in the purest sense, in the sense of a genuine rarity.
Here Christophe Monniot tries and succeeds in what has been little attempted in recent years in the world of jazz. What does this singularity consist of? We can mention three aspects that characterize it: a concept album, very rich materials and the spiritual dimension.
Peter Bruun‘s All Too Human – “Vernacular Avant-garde” (aylCD-155)
Drummer Peter Bruun from Copenhagen has been aware through his musical career of the creative potential and power lurking in paradoxical manoeuvres. In this new unit he has gathered three like-minded musical fellows under the All Too Human (ATH) flag. Through the years he undertook a lot of terra incognita expeditions with pianist Simon Toldam, guitarist Marc Ducret and trumpeter Kasper Tranberg. It connected and connects them on deeper levels in their musical interaction.
