Kitchen Orchestra with Alexander von Schlippenbach AlbumPurchased

On November 1st, Stavanger, Norway’s Kitchen Orchestra releases their debut record with jazz legend Alexander von Schlippenbach. Kitchen Orchestra's collaboration with pianist and composer Alexander von Schlippenbach goes back to the spring of 2010 and Maijazz Festival in Stavanger, Norway. Schlippenbach’s music in many ways sums up postwar European jazz. His artistic trademark is the sheer bredth of his stylistic output, whereby his collective improvisation, contemporary music and jazz has created the ideal structures for orchestral playfulness and musical individualism. Few composers and bandleaders have the ability to bring out individual beauty – even through the haze of a collective frenzy – as Schlippenbach. In Kitchen Orchestra with Alexander von Schlippenbach the musicians are in many ways free agents within Schlippenbach’s highly diverse musical concepts; at the same time as roles are clearly assigned on the specific individual musical voices. "Grand Canon" exemplifies how graphical notation and steady conducting manipulates the orchestra as one large instrument, while the repetitive and vamp-based "Time Is" has Schlippenbach’s piano as the driving force. Aki Takase's beautiful melancholic trumpet feature "Canto Dedicato" (with soloist Gunhild Seim) floats over Berlinische undertones, while Monk’s tune "Let 's Cool One" closes the album with a devious and cabaret-style performance. Each song is a little piece of European art history, with flavours of modernism referencing everything from avant-garde to pop culture. The album as a whole emphasizes Kitchen Orchestra’s collective creativity – all under the spell of the puppet masters steady, experienced and visionary hand. Release concert with Schlippenbach will be held under Kitchen Orchestras annual festival What’s Cooking 2-3 of November at Spor 5 in Stavanger.
