Product Description

The first ever live album from Jan Garbarek and certain to be one of 2009's most successful jazz releases, 'Dresden' captures a fiery and powerful performance, a fine document of the Norwegian saxophonist's exceptional improvising capacities. It's a magnificent release with which to welcome ECM's 40th anniversary season.

Recorded at the city's Alte Schlachthof in October 2007, it captures his group when it was reformulating its approach - earlier that year bassist Yuri Daniel joined the band when Eberhard Weber was sidelined by illness. The new group tackles its repertoire head-on, with the interaction between Garbarek and drummer Manu Katché at the music's centre. Daniel, a Brazilian bassist living in Portugal, helps to anchor the pulses and rhythm patterns and Rainer Brüninghaus maintains his long-established role as colourist-in-action. Both bassist and keyboardist help to shape a climate in which Garbarek's hymnic, declamatory and intensely melodic solos can find full expression, drawing energy also from Katché's hard-driving drums. As The Guardian wrote of their 2007 London Jazz Festival concert, "The contrast between an intense jamming sound and the songlike simplicity of the tunes is always Garbarek's magic mix, but this version of the band has an exhilarating intensity."

Dresden is eagerly awaited. It's been five years since 'In Praise of Dreams', 11 since 'Rites', 16 since 'Twelve Moons', the last disc identified unequiv-ocally as a Jan Garbarek Group album. The popular repertoire on this 2-CD set includes old favourites drawn from 'Twelve Moons' and 'Legend of the Seven Dreams' eras, new material, intriguing cover versions: L. Shankar's "Paper Nut", Milton Nascimento's "Milagre Dos Peixes", Harald Sæverud's "Rondo Amoroso", and tremendous solos by all parties.

Personnel: Jan Garbarek (soprano and tenor saxophones, silje flute), Rainer Brüninghaus (piano, keyboards), Yuri Daniel (bass), Manu Katché (drums)

Jan Garbarek, that most contained of saxophonists, was almost caught shaking his booty at his Festival Hall show with this band in 2007. Maybe the extra thrill imparted by sometime rock drummer Manu Katche and the Jaco Pastorius-like electric bassist Yuri Daniel - and an audience reaction rather different to the familiar Garbarek-induced collective trance - triggered ECM's decision to put out the first-ever Garbarek live album. This double CD was recorded in Dresden a month earlier, and it has all the London gig's intensity. Fans needn't fear the banishing of windswept-landscape Garbarek or pensively folk-dancing Garbarek - they appear on the elegiac "Twelve Moons" and meditative "The Tall Tear Trees". But from the eager opening theme of "Paper Nut", through the slow-build of Milton Nascimento's "Milagre Dos Peixes", to Katche's solo percussion storm on "Grooving Out!" and on to the darkly lyrical encore "Voy Cantando", this marks a Garbarek group with impact--John Fordham, Guardian 5 star review
