- roberto olzer trio: celeste
(2018, cd, japan, atelier sawano)
It got released by the Atelier Sawano label in Japan. It just shows you how small the world has become.
"Celeste" is a very enjoyable album. It's modern jazz with beautiful themes and fine improvisations.
Next to the original material (by Robert Olzer and by Yuri Goloubev), the disc also includes pieces by other composers. Modest Mussorgsky's 'The Castle' did make a fine impression, but what the band did with Frank Zappa's 'G-Sport Tornado' and 'Sleep Dirt' is fabulous.
In fact, they perform the Zappa pieces as one composition, starting with 'G-Spot Tornade', through a drum solo / break towards 'Sleep Dirt', a double bass solo, and back to 'G-Spot Tornado'. Breathtaking. Nine and a half minutes.
Here's 'G-Spot Tornado' :
