Polyphony
Release Date: 15/02/2019
Catalogue No.: WR4732
Record Label: Whirlwind
Format: CD

A lustrous double album showcasing just why Jasper Blom is one of the Netherlands’ most prominent, forward-thinking saxophonist-composers in contemporary jazz. ‘Polyphony’ documents two sold-out live concerts from his quartet at Amsterdam’s BIMHUIS in collaboration with two special solo artists - trumpeter Bert Joris and trombonist Nils Wogram. The first set features the quartet’s longtime friend Bert Joris; and Nils Wogram, in the second set, has been on Blom’s radar for years as a particularly original player, composer and improviser: “I’m a fan, and his freer approach is a good match for my music.” Across more than 100 minutes, these 16 tracks deliver a polychromatic throng of styles and influences - from mellow dual horns and gyrating guitar in ‘Walz for Magnus’ to pop-mediaeval ‘Virelai’ (after Guillaume de Machaut). Personnel: Jasper Blom (tenor saxophone), Bert Joris (trumpet), Nils Wogram (trombone), Jesse van Ruller (guitar), Frans van der Hoeven (double bass), Martijn Vink (drums)
