»BUCHANAN REQUIEM« RELEASED 2 OCTOBER 2015
– An eminently impressive contribution to new Danish music and an obvious candidate for the Nordic Council Music Prize.
– Would it be too much to describe this as a significant contribution to Danish culture!
– The CD is full of exquisite moments and beautiful details in the course of the pieces’ eighty minutes, where we are wrapped in the soothing ambiance of the chorus, which at times seems instrumental, Jakob Bro’s lyrical guitar playing, which fits in well with the main sound-picture, with Marylin Mazur’s orientalism on all kinds of percussion instruments and, not least, Jakob Buchanan’s ‘rainy-day’ blue and moving flugelhorn playing.
–Jakob Buchanan has crowned an already great musical carrier with a masterpiece, in a class of its own in Danish jazz.
–Buchanan plays possibly better than ever on both trumpet and flugelhorn.
–This is not just a highly recommended release. It’s one of this years greatest jazz releases.
