John Cratchley It is wonderful news to finally have the Swiss Intakt label catalogue available on BC...these terrific European labels (Intakt,Hat Art,FMP,Clean Feed et al) are really heroic; they have been putting out brilliant music for years and they endure because they really love the music and want to make it available...it is a mission. The Intakt catalogue is full of treasure for the serious listener and I will be revisiting old favourites and new releases for sure...download the pdf catalogue for free and start checking it out!
The combination of Takase, von Schlippenbach and the brilliant music of Eric Dolphy (another Hero) was just too good to ignore!
This music (and the entire catalogue) will stretch you,intrigue you and enrich you,I think.

about

Intakt CD 239

So long, Eric! For this tribute to Eric Dolphy, Alexander von Schlippenbach and Aki Takase have put together an ensemble with some of the best interpreters of Dolphy's music. In addition to Aki Takase and Alexander von Schlippenbach on grand pianos, Han Bennink and Karl Berger, two of Dolphy's former collaborators can be heard on drums and vibraphone. The band is completed by one of the most exciting front lines on the European jazz scene with Rudi Mahall, Nils Wogram, Axel Dörner, Henrik Walsdorff and Tobias Delius.

Bold arrangments and visionary playing bring out the exploding expressivity of Dolphy's compositions and prove that – even 50 years after Dolphy's death – they sound fresh and relevant.
