Here we got two latest tittles from Norwegian Rune Grammofon record label. Our favourite music publisher for the most creative artists not just from Norway, but entire Scandinavian Sonic Universe.
Finally as it was previously advised on the website Berliner Festspiele realised their Berlin Jazz Fest programme for 2016 edition . It was a long wait with a little leak only so I was all ears. In fact it looks like a bizz and I can see few sets there which are matching some of the best recordings which happened this year. So be prepared for a proper report as always with tasty pictures, anecdotes and unforgettable memories
Berlin Jazz Fest 2011 intro
Berlin JazzFest 2011 – Jazz from Poland!
(based on Berlinerfestspiele press release)
The focus of this year edition was jazz from Poland. That’s why it formally started 15 of October with an opening performance of IRCHA ,the latest output from one of the most dynamic polish jazzman – Mikolaj Trzaska and his Clarinet Quartet. It took place at Martin-Gropius-Bau and was related to the opening of the exhibition titled “Side by Side. Poland –Germany. A 1000 Years of Art. And History”. Next to follow ,a week later ,was an ATOM String Quartet. Another interesting project which came from a young artists ,but took audience by storm with his freshness and vitality. Then as usual the main part of the Fest took place from 2 to 6 November and as always supposed to be long awaited by every jazz lover . A special highpoint of this year’s festival was music from Poland, with appearances by trumpeter Tomasz Stańko, pianist Leszek Możdżer, and many other Polish jazz musicians.

Stephan Micus is one of those artists who does not appear on the stage too often. There is a few reasons for that. First of of all that possibly there is just simply a lack of time. As opposed to artists who are recording particular projects and then touring with them, Stephan would rather explore the whole music universe ,putting his output on the tape and then trying to find a way to give the overall concept its final shape.
As per first post it would be right to point out what is going to appear in this section. To keep it simple : everything else other than record reviews and the Music Photography, which will go to separate files. News about recording realises and upcoming gigs I am aware of, etc. More accurately : concert reviews, fellietons, festival reports and every kind of articles and write ups which is disturbing my head coils and looking to vent out 😉
