Eastern European folk tunes played as jazz. A tight and compelling combination, led by Croatian jazz guitarist Goran Ivanovic. He’s joined by sax, clarinet, flute, bouzouki, bass, and perc. The playing is really wonderful and he’s one hell of a talented guitarist. For fans of both world music and jazz.|
*1. Mid/upbeat klezmer-infused folk jam. Intricate & delicious.
2. Starts slow & dramatic. Picks up to a mid/up bellydance wiggle.
*3. Upbeat Balkan jazz jam. Gypsys meet Dervishes in Chicago.
4. Lyrical, delicate and cinematic w/sweeping melodies & sadness.
5. Sephardic-y strings/perc. Mid becomes crazy-fast jazz folk dance.
6. Slow, w/blocks of sounds. Spare & dramatic.
*7. Light mid/downbeat meander w/great solos & a small club sound.
8. Slow clarinet/perc drone. Builds gradually but retains spareness.
*9. Mostly midtempo w/insistent perc & strings at counterpoint. Cool!
