Sorry for the lack of post the last month but i´ve been pretty much out of order with a bad knee, but hey everythings about to get better with a successful surgery from the best doctor in Scandinavia and springtime on the rise you can´t feel down!

In the past month i´ve been listening to loads and loads of new music though and one of the albums that been on repeat is Mozdzer, Danielsson & Fresco´s “Between Us And The Light”

This trio consists the most superb polish piano player Leszek Mozdzer accompanied by Swedish bass player Lars Danielsson and the Israeli percussion player – Zohar Fresco, have created something of a Dream Team Trio. This Dream Team sounds like a dream indeed – lightly, dynamically, with the touch of reflection at times. And as in a good poetry – imagination does not argue with discipline, and the visualization comes along with intellectualism.

PLEASE BUY THIS ALBUM!!

A companion “group” to Jason Köhnen and Giedon Kiers The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble wich i blogged about a couple of weeks ago, The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation is the antithesis of the jazz ensemble concept. Wreathed in subterranean drones and undulating tone waves, The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation is the sort of lounge act one would find playing in the lower circles of Hell, down were time dilates to infinity and every action takes epochs to complete.  It is deep, cold, dark, and suffocating. It is to a radio friendly pop song as glacial drift is to rapid climatic change.

This infected satanic jazz madness is released on the Berlin based label Ad Noiseam.

The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation – One from the album “Doomjazz Future Corpses”

Hauschka

2009/02/18

hauschkaHauschka, the alias of Volker Bertelmann, is based in Düsseldorf, his fourth full length album is called “Ferndorf”. This pianist and composer explores every chamber instrument in its full capacity. On Ferndorf (translating into ‘remote village’ from German), Hauschka brings in two cellists, violinist and even a trombone player to construct modern classical pieces that are pleasant on the ear and the soul.

Five out of twelve tracks appear to be “purely improvised”, yet elicit strong musicianship from the participating players. Alluding to his birthplace in rural Germany, the trip along the memory lane, is an upbeat skip and hop. Here, Bertelmann revisits his childhood influences contributing to his decade long affair with the piano. Where most major-chord filled pieces usually fill me with a post-neo-classical dread of scale walking, Hauschka keeps restraint and tends to concentrate on execution and message of each individual piece. Of course, no such trip ever occurs without a touch of melancholy. Please check out Fat Cat Records where Bertelmann releases his music on, so much interesting music on that label.

Amon Tobin

I guess (and hope) you all heard of Amon Tobin a.k.a Amon Adonai Santos de Araújo Tobin if not i´m pretty sorry for your lifes!! He is without doubt one of the biggest underground heroes alive on planet earth today, who has delivered so much good music the past decade, this blogpost is a celebration of Tobins´s career!

The Brazilian musician, DJ, and producer known for his massive sound walls blending trip-hop sampled jazz fused with drum and bass, intelligent dance music and samba, often with a pretty dark and deep approach is best known for his use of sampling, where a small section of a previous recording is manipulated to produce a new sound. His use of this technique has changed over the course of his career. On his original singles under Ninebar and his first three albums, Tobin acquired all of the samples to produce music from his personal collection of vinyl records, nowadays he manipulates the sounds with a combination of audio hardware and software, and the original source is often not recognizable in its new context. His techniques began branching into technical sound design, taking break beats or single instruments, modifying specific frequencies, and producing new sounds. Tobin is signed to the ever so reliable label Ninja Tunes.

Ahura

In his native Persia, Mohammad Eghbal a.k.a Ahura grew up in an environment which was very much inspired by the Sufi tradition. His father published books and texts mainly on philosophy, poetry and mystics. Mohammad got deeply touched by a Dervish who was playing the Reed-Flute/Ney and singing songs from the mystic RUMI. From this time, his main goal was to work with the healing energy of rhythm and sound. With scientific precision, he built many instruments by himself and learnt to use their sounds and vibrations.

Today, he is a master of the Oriental Ney, the Persian Dombak, the Oriental Oud and of course his main instrument, his voice. Mohammads deep connection with the earth fuses with the sky-oriented whirling dance of the Dervishes. The Union of breath, sound and rhythm leads to inner harmony and fosters a deep healing process.
