✨✧ Martin Kuchen & Landaeus TrioVinyl (Four Lamentations & One Wicked Dream Of Innocence/Pity Of It All) ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A special CD dedicated to previous vinyl – as the disc features both vinyl-only albums by saxophonist Martin Kuchen – issued in very limited amounts for Record Store Day events! First up is Four Lamentations & One Wicked Dream Of Innocence – beautifully blue-tinged work from reedman Martin Kuchen – working here with his Lamentations Trio – a group who've got a melancholy vibe that really lives up to their name! The set's got Kuchen giving us some of his most deeply soulful lines to date – these beautiful slow-building solos, especially on tenor – which have this evocative, ancient sort of quality – but mixed with the very distinct, personal voice that Martin's always brought to his music. The group features piano and some especially cool clavinet from Mathias Landaes, plus Jonas Holgersson on drums and Johnny Aman on bass – on titles that include "Post Injuries", "Don't Ruin Me", "Du Ror Dig Sa Sakta", and "One Minute Of Innocence". Pity Of It All features sublime sounds from reedman Martin Kuchen – who blows tenor, alto, and soprano sax here – alongside the trio of pianist Mathias Landeaus, in a setting that's very unique! The structure of the album is familiar – sax, piano, bass, and drums – but the group have a way of putting things together with a very personal, very individual approach – neither free jazz, nor any sort of familiar modern styles – but a brilliant presentation that feels completely of the moment when it was conceived, captured perfectly here on record! Some moments are slightly spiritual, but others have far more melancholy to make that claim – and Kuchen really blows us away with his phrasing, especially on the tenor – and Landeaus can step back and forth in his own presence, as needed, to swing the spotlight in different ways. Mathias plays clavinet on one track – and titles include "Martha", "The Pity Of It All", "Today Is Better Than Tomorrow", and "11 13 47". CD
