CD Review: Peter Ehwald - Double Trouble Live.

Peter Ehwald (Tenor/Soprano); Robert Landfermann, Andreas Lang Jonas (Double Basses); Jonas Burgwinkel – Drums.
This live quartet album is somewhat different in that it features two double bass players (does that make it a quadruple bass?). I can’t say it adds to the overall listening experience to be honest, but I’m sure those present at the recording would have appreciated the novelty of the 8 strings. In the main this album is a vehicle for Ehwald’s compositions. His sax playing on both tenor and soprano is well supported by the double double bass players and I detected some very fine work by drummer Burgwinkel which I guess makes me a bit of a winkelpicker.  Ehwald is indeed a very fine player and in this format plays in a very free and uncompromising manner. Not easy listening but well worth a concentrated listen.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
