During the Swing Era the clarinet was king. Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, and Woody Herman led three of the most popular bands of the 30’s and 40’s, yet with the advent of bebop and small-group jazz, the saxophone commandeered the crown, and the clarinet found itself in exile. However, with the advent of the Avant-garde in the 1960’s, a new generation of clarinetists steeped in the tradition, yet yearning to explore the outer limits of the music and their instruments, came to the fore. This live album from the 1979 Baden Baden New Jazz Meeting celebrates six of these adventurers.

After a first disc in 2007 dedicated to existing works and transcriptions, we decided to work in direct collaboration with composers. The path we have chosen is designed to open up the repertoire and the horizons of our duo. This disc is an account of a part of these compositions, and of as many encounters. It also shows the pertinence of the partnership between the violin and marimba.

Walter Wolfman Washington is a soulful musician of rare talent, as well as a deep thinker and hip philosopher, and his hometown is New Orleans. Walter has cut his teeth for the last 50 years playing everywhere from European festivals to bars that Google Maps will never find. New Orleans is notorious for its wildness, parades, and celebrations. New Orleans is Mardi Gras, but it’s also the uptown class of Allen Toussaint and hip style and language of Dr. John. Walter has always embodied both, but finally we have a set of songs that reflects the yin to Walter’s bring-the-party yang. This is the record that we all have known he has in him. This is the night after that party, or maybe just the after party. He’s been given free rein to express himself, and that’s special.

Accompanied by a top-flight rhythm section, four exceptional German gypsy violinists trade solos on five standards and three originals. The album swings infectiously as the violinists present lively renditions of Satin Doll and Autumn Leaves, as well as a surprisingly up-tempo Bye Bye Blackbird. The four are following in the tradition of legendary gypsy guitarist Django Rheinhardt and his musical soulmate French violinist Stephane Grappelli, but there is a taste of something more modern. Leader of the pack Zipflo Rheinhardt is descended from Django, but admits to being influenced by Jean-Luc Ponty.

Following on from the noteworthy al-bum ‘1600', released in 2012, ‘1700' is a vibrant homage to Italian Baroque, in which Rinaldo Alessandrini has brought together the most outstand-ing Italian composers of the first half of the eighteenth century: Locatelli, Mascitti, Vivaldi, Caldara, Durante, Ga-luppi and Pugnani. All of these com-posers went into exile, serv-ing prestigious foreign courts. They each evolved the ‘Italian style,’ based either on their own tastes or those of the country in which they had taken refuge. Each composer created his own share of wonders, to which Maestro Alessandrini’s intelligent and re-fined interpretation brings a passionate fresh perspective.

How to describe this Polish band, this music? Bandleader Grzegorz Brudko explains, “You simply can’t call our music ‘traditional’. We play in Hagaw style”. Call it trad, old-time, swing; it’s irreverent, comedic, with musical antics that straddle the line between party music and German cabaret. There is music in their madness, however.

First came the Parisian jam sessions, then the shared bands… All these experiences led to the same conclusion: an exceptional musical understanding. It was only natural that, a few years later, Grégory Privat (from Martinique) and Sonny Troupé (from Guadeloupe) decided to work on an original concept uniting piano and ka drum. The title tells all, two instruments lead the concert: piano and ka, nothing else! A high-speed chase emitting a bright light. A wordless exchange/interchange. The languages of ka and piano intertwine, impossible to tell which one is following the other, both responding to the other, the sonorities of jazz and gwo ka (traditional percussion from Guadeloupe) interlocking.
