Pianist Michael Wollny, accordionist Vincent Peirani, saxophonist Emile Parisien and the extraordinary vocal gymnastics of Andreas Schaerer – four stand-out individual talents from the ACT Records roster join forces in an all-star quartet that redefines the range of their various instruments – not just cutting loose from the boundaries of jazz, but doing it in a way which energizes and takes the audience by storm.
Individually, all four have made a massive impact at previous Festivals, but and the release of their collaboration – Out of Land marks the boundless potential that these emergent forces will have in the European jazz of the future.
The virtuosity of Polish violinist Adam Bałdych enables him to pass with astonishing ease through all kinds of borders: the boundaries of his instrument, the barriers between genres, the seams between composing and improvising. His collaboration with the brilliant Norwegian pianist Helge Lien is a heady mix of jazz, Polish and Norwegian folk music.
ACT have championed the cause of new European music for some 25 years – tonight’s concert takes their message into a new dimension.
