Blue Note re:imagined II

Auf Jazzthings schreibt Ralf Dombrowski vom Blue-Note Branding, wie schön es sei, sich ein Gemenge aus NeoSoul, Urban-Beats und Postmodern-Jazz mit typisch wildem Stilgemenge im postkolonialen Klangidentitäts-Cocktail-Modus anzuhören. Die Musik kannst du gut nebenher konsumieren, ein paar Mails lesen und löschen und hier und da dich überraschen lassen, beispielsweise von Epistrophy von Theon Cross, einem Thelonious Monk Klassiker – auch will Blue Note der jungen Londoner Jazzszene seine eigene Sammlung bekannter wie weniger bekannter Musiker:innen schenken, ich dagegen würde bei einem re:imaginierten Konzert wahrscheinlich ganz weit hinten stehen, weil die junge Jazzgemeinde dort vorn alle Plätze für sich erobert –

Blue Note re:imagined II

Der Generationenwechsel: angesagt: und vollzogen – zumindest in London. Für leicht befunden mit netten Popsongs in klarem Fahrwasser – any way oder: das muss man nicht bewerten – das genießt man oder nicht, eine Fifty-Fifty-Chance – wie es vor sich hin mainstreamt. Wo doch auch diese feinen und kleinen Überraschungen sind aus Fifty-Fifty-Zweite-Chance: der Song von Oscar Jerome (Why you so) Green With Envy zum Beispiel.

Oder: sehr hübsch: Lost von Daniel Casimir und Ria Moran – nochmal by the way: Epistrophy von Theon Cross ragt aus allem heraus, Ein:Dampf:Hammer. Binker Golding holt mit Joe Lovanos Fort Worth aus 1991 ein Gitarren-Brett hervor (Billy Adamson), auf dem Binker Golding am Saxophon und Sarah Tandy am Piano sich überstürzen dürfen. Abgerundet wird es vom Gospel Cisto Redentor von Duke Pearson, vorgetragen von Franc Moody

On Jazzthings, Ralf Dombrowski writes about Blue Note branding, about how nice it is to listen to a mixture of neo-soul, urban beats and post-modern jazz with a typically wild mixture of styles in post-colonial sound identity cocktail mode.

The music is good to consume on the side, read and delete a few emails and be surprised here and there, for example by Epistrophy by Theon Cross, a Thelonious Monk classic – Blue Note also wants to give the young London jazz scene its own collection of well-known and lesser-known musicians, and I would probably stand way in the back at a re:imagined concert, because the young jazz community there is taking all the seats for itself up front – but it’s not the only thing.

The generation change: announced: and accomplished – at least in London. Found easy with nice pop songs in clear waters – any way or: you don’t have to rate that – you enjoy that or not, a fifty-fifty chance – as it mainstreams along. Where there are also these fine and small surprises from Fifty-Fifty Second Chance: the song by Oscar Jerome (Why you so) Green With Envy, for example.

Or: very pretty: Lost by Daniel Casimir and Ria Moran – again by the way: Epistrophy by Theon Cross stands out from all, Ein:Dampf:Hammer. Binker Golding pulls out a guitar board with Joe Lovano’s Fort Worth from 1991 (Billy Adamson), on which he is allowed to rush on saxophone and Sarah Tandy on piano. It is rounded off by Duke Pearson’s gospel Cisto Redentor, performed by Franc Moody.
