JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2011 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Ounaskari-Mikkonen-Jorgensen at Rochester Internation Jazz Festival

It's nice to know that the ECM label is still cranking out esoteric sound treasure steeped in reverb. Ounaskari-Mikkonen-Jorgensen at the Lutheran Church were like a deep breathing exercise. They suspended time. It takes all players on board to advance a tune ever so carefully without breaking the trance. The trumpet player, sitting down, also played percussion but his secret weapon was a haunting wordless, vocals. It made you feel like you were witnessing some ancient rite. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
