Product Description

Product Description

This live recording captures the international collaboration between Cuban pianist Aruan Ortiz and American bassist Michael Janisch who are joined by one of the most respected and iconic alto saxophonists in jazz today, Greg Osby. Their music spans the breadth of contemporary sounds while drawing firmly and authentically from jazz's rich tradition.

Janisch, now resident in the UK, is an exceptionally accomplished musician who has arguably done more than anyone to bring about world-class collaborations between American and British jazzmen. Ortiz, a truly remarkable young classically-trained Cuban pianist, has made a major impact on the New York scene since he arrived there in 2003 and he's currently a member of the Wallace Roney Quintet. Both leaders have performed at the forefront of contemporary jazz during the last decade with some of the world's greatest artists, such as Joe Lovano, Lee Konitz, Mike Gibbs and Terry Lyne Carrington.

The group, that is completed by first-call NYC resident drummer Rudy Royston and perennial award winning Spanish trumpeter Raynald Colom, has been captured live performing an onslaught of soundscapes, moods, and explorations, which has proved that this is not some thrown-together super group, but a potent mixture of world-class improvising musicians with a sincere empathy for creating improvised music of the now.

Personnel: Aruán Ortiz (piano), Greg Osby (alto saxophone), Raynald Colom (trumpet), Michael Janisch (double bass), Rudy Royston (drums)

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb live jazz recording 4 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD
You are unlikely to hear a better live recording from the 2011 London Jazz Festival than this. The concert is a scorching, boiling collection of musical ideas, delivered by some phenomenally talented players. There is, indeed, a throwback feel to the music here, capturing the very best of the modern jazz scene, but sounding as fresh and inventive as anything that could have been whistled up by the be-bop greats in the 1950s in some New York smoke-infested club. Some of the musical exchanges and solos are almost unbelievable in the intensity they generate.

Complete with tinkling glass and crockery background noises from the punters lucky enough to have been there, Banned In London convincingly brings the atmosphere of sizzling live jazz to life in a way that few live albums manage. Wonderful, raucous stuff.

I've own individual cds by Aruan Ortiz (Orbiting), Michael Janisch (Purpose Built) and Greg Osby (The Inner Circle), so I was curious how they sounded together. I was not disappointed. This live cd captures some good moments of all three.
