There have been numerous interpretations of classical music by jazz musicians, but trombonist Samuel Blaser opted to explore less common ground by arranging music by Renaissance and Baroque composers, assisted by drummer Paul Motian, pianist Russ Lossing, and bassist Thomas Moran. Most of his focus is on the works of Claudio Monteverdi, starting with a loping, shimmering setting of Lamento della Nifa that features Motian providing a constant background for the leader's poignant trombone, with Lossing and Moran darting in and out of the picture at times. Riotornello is a free-spirited, loose interpretation, while Blaser utilizes the vocal/trombone technique popularized by Tricky Sam Nanton in Duke Ellington's band in Si Dolce e I'Tormento in a powerful duet with Motian, though his sound is closer to what a modernist like Steve Turre uses. Il Ritorno d'Ulisse in Patria -Atto Quatro, Scene II is transformed into a tense, somewhat abstract arrangement that could easily be used as a film soundtrack. Also valuable are his unique perspectives in approaching the music of Biago Marini and Girolamo Frescobaldi. This provocative CD should entice other jazz musicians to look for hidden gems in the vast world of classical music. ---Ken Dryden, AllMusic Review

 

Here, trombonist Samuel Blaser realizes his inspired notion of blending Italian Renaissance and baroque music-madrigals, string quartets, toccatas, Gregorian melodies-with jazz improvisation. He was also wise enough to hire Paul Motian to underscore the proceedings with his signature rubato touch on the kit, which instantly brings a hip sensibility to these ancient melodies. Bassist Thomas Morgan and piano Russ Lossing round out the ensemble on this intriguing, unconventional outing. ---Bill Milkowski, jazztimes.com

 

 

W 2011 młody i szalenie zdolny puzonista i kompozytor zaprezentował międzynarodowej publiczności nowy zespół, w którym zajął się muzyką epok wcześniejszych, a raczej tym jak muzyka renesansu może być w praktyce nowoczesnej improwizacji inspirująca. Wkrótce na rynek płytowy trafiła płyta pod takim samym tytułem jak nazwa bandu. W składzie oprócz młodych równie utalentowanych jak Samuel Blaser muzyków był także Paul Motian - legenda światowego jazzu i jeden z najważniejszych perkusistów w historii gatunku.

Dzisiaj Paula Motiana już wśród nas nie ma, ale Consort In Motion przetrwał zapraszając do swojego składu inną legendę, znanego z niezliczonej ilości własnych projektów, ale także z udziału w drugim wielkim kwartecie Anthony'ego Braxtona, innego mistrza perkusji Gerry'ego Hemingwaya. I oto mamy dowód niezbity na znakomitość tej formacji. Wczoraj na rynku płytowym ukazała się druga płyta zespołu "A Mirror To Machaut" zadedykowana i poświęcona muzyce jednego z największych francuskich kompozytorów i poetów średniowiecza Guillaumowi Machaut. ---jazzarium.pl
