about

Intakt CD 330

Alexander Hawkins is a creative epicentre from the London
jazz scene and is regarded in the UK as one of the most innovative
musicians of the younger generation with a surprising
radius of action. He plays with Evan Parker, Wadada Leo
Smith, Taylor Ho Bynum, Louis Moholo, Shabaka Hutchings
and Elaine Mitchener. 'Iron into Wind' is the name of his new
piano solo.
The phrase “Iron into Wind” evokes for him both the transience of
improvisation and a fascination with solid material, represented by
the powerful blocks of sound to be heard in several of these pieces.
Richard Willimas writes in the liner notes: "The mood varies
from the two-handed avant-gospel figurations of “Congregational”
to the hurtling “Étude” via the austere ruminations of “Tumble
Mono”, the knotted blues of “Strange Courage” and the explosive
accelerations of “It Should Be a Song”, with a diversion, in “Pleasant
Constellation”, by way of variations on an element from Sun
Ra’s “Fate in a Pleasant Mood”. What he achieves here is a fine
balance of all his interests, creating a self-portrait of a wonderfully
inventive modern musician.“
