JUSSI REIJONEN: Un
Unmusic, 2013

WORLD-JAZZ – Finnish guitarist/oudist brings together a quintet from the Middle East, Scandinavia, and Spain for a unique multicultural set that balances a Nordic jazz sensibility with ancient traditions. Tracks 1,3 and parts of 6 have energy but the rest is wide open and quietly meditative, with lots of little silent moments. Good stuff all around.

Fo’s Picks: 1, 2, 3

1. 7:56 – twisty midtempo: oud, piano & bass navigate perc rapids; opens up
2. 10:31 – Coltrane ballad: minimalist, very quiet, ethereal and just beautiful
3. 11:32 – very Middle Eastern: spiky uptempo bookends slow sinuous dance, piano fantasy, trudging march, and impressive qanun (zither) solo
4. 7:10 – solo guitar (mostly), very spacious with gentle African-blues sound
5. 9:06 – fretless guitar & bass: deep, meditative middle eastern mystery
6. 13:38 – agile, wordless fem vocal adds to the otherworldy quality; moves from a soft pitter-patter to a vast stretch, then walking rhythm
Track length is actually 6:53, followed by 30-second silence, then very slow solo guitar exploration
