Samuel Blaser Consort in Motion - A Mirror to Machaut (CH-US-JP)
In their second release, celebrated Swiss trombonist´s Euro-American band find common ground between avant jazz and the sophisticated court music of medieval masters Machaut and Dufay. Blaser takes a varied approach to the material, from faithful transcriptions to recompositions that freely adapt formal elements of the originals.The band members, long recognized for their contributions to jazz and beyond, play with a relaxed refinement that occasionally erupts in joyful abandon. Benoît Delbeq´s glowing audiophile production and Blaser´s colorful arrangements establish a continuity of mood and feeling that gives the record broad appeal.
