New CD - Corrie van Binsbergen

With VANBINSBERGEN PLAYSTATION Corrie van Binsbergen picks up the threads of her instrumental earlier bands. After twelve years of mainly focusing on projects with literature and composing for large contemporary ensembles, theater and film, the time was ripe for this energetic all-star superband. Like before there are no boundaries, no limiting styles, but her own: energetic, bold and playful. A dynamic live CD!

New CD - Mette Henriette

The untitled ECM double album debut of Norwegian saxophonist, composer and improviser Mette Henriette (Norway, 1980) is an arrestingly original musical statement. Jazz players and classical players are drawn together in her ensemble, but the music shapes its own world, outside genre definitions.
Disc 1 features trio music with Mette Henriette, pianist Johan Lindvall and cellist Katrine Schiøtt. Disc Two has Mette’s “sinfonietta” with thirteen players. Read some press reviews here: ECM 2460/61
And listen to a track in Radio Monalisa on Sunday January 10th.
