Landed In Brooklyn
Not yet reviewed.
For their 5th album, the German brothers trumpeter Julian and pianist Roman Wasserfuhr are in Brooklyn. For this new album, their fifth for ACT, the idea had emerged that the magic of the city of New York, as a force to propel and lift them, should became the concept behind the album.
Three of the city's finest musicians were enlisted: First and foremost among those inspirers is saxophonist Donny McCaslin, the lynchpin of David Bowie s last revelatory masterpiece 'Blackstar'. Tim Lefebvre, known in Europe for his work with the Michael Wollny Trio, and also a member of Bowie s last band is equally at home in jazz and in rock contexts. Nate Wood is an in-demand first call drummer and close associate of Donny McCaslin. Very little had been agreed or set down in advance when Julian and Roman Wasserfuhr arrived at the studio to meet the top-drawer American players. They had brought the sheet music of some pieces with them, but the guiding principle was to see what would transpire and to let things happen. This glorious and revelatory recording is the result.
Julian Wasserfuhr / trumpet & flugelhorn, Roman Wasserfuhr / piano, marimba, seaboard, Donny McCaslin / tenor saxophone, Tim Lefebvre / electric & double bass, Nate Wood / drums, Recorded by Max Ross at Systems Two Recording Studios, Brooklyn (New York).
Produced by two times Grammy winner Al Pryor (worked with Cécile McLorin Salvant, Danilo Pérez, Raul Midón, Christian McBride among others)
