Melodic Ornette Coleman: Piano Works XIII
Not yet reviewed.
It is extremely rare that German jazz musicians reach as much international acclaim as pianist Joachim Kühn - from his early years in the former GDR, over his escape and work in Western Germany to France and finally the US and collaborations with artists from all over the world.
On "Melodic Ornette Coleman" Kühn performs original compositions by his long-time duo-partner which, for most part, have never been recorded before. A virtual encounter of two of the harmonically and melodically most complex musicians of our time.
"Between 1995 and 2000 I was able to play sixteen concerts with Ornette. Before each concert he would write ten new pieces that we would work out and record during an entire week at his Harmolodic studio in Harlem, New York. Since he wanted me to contribute the cards (sounds) for his melodies, I was directly involved in the composition process. Once the concert was over, the songs would never be played again. I am now the only one who has all of the recordings and the sheet music for a total of 170 pieces. And after about twenty years, I have put together the most beautiful of his melodies and ballads and recorded them for piano solo. With the exception of "Lonely Woman", none of the pieces has ever been released by Ornette" - Joachim Kühn, Ibiza, 11th September 2018
