New jazz from Europe: Lassen + Vit Kristan Trio
The Norwegian saxophonist is becoming a favourite here in Edinburgh, first with the amazing, Pixel, and now with his own group, powerful and passionate North European impressionism melded to roots in American jazz .
The 2018 version of 1970’s Garbarek/Stebson or Keith Jarrett Quartet. The Czech pianist, Vit Kristan; is another sensation. Conjuring beautiful music from roots in jazz, European folk and classical traditions. This Trio with trumpeter and vocalist, Oskar Torok; and bass player, Jiri Slavik, play delightfully engaging and attractive chamber jazz.
