SZILÁRD MEZEI SEPTET / 100 tü hossza (SLAM Productions)
L’altiste Szilárd Mezei propose un nouveau disque chez SLAM Productions, un nouveau sous-groupe de son grand ensemble, enregistré au Loft de Cologne en juin 2010. L’ensemble propose un mélange de cuivres et de cordes, incluant tuba et contrebasse, plus batterie. Des compositions fouillées comme à l’habitude, avec un peu plus de jazz qu’à l’habitude, plus de moments qui swingent et qui jovialisent. Mais le pathos n’est jamais loin et l’improvisation libre occupe encore une place importante dans ces longues pièces (presque toutes dans les 10 minutes et plus). Une proposition solide.

Violinist Szilárd Mezei is back with a new record on SLAM Productions recorded at the Loft in Köln, June 2010, and featuring yet another sub-grouping of his large ensemble. This line-up features brass and string instruments, including tuba AND doublebass, plus a drummer. Sophisticated compositions as usual, with a bit more jazz infused in them – more swinging and cheery moments than usual. However, pathos is never far away, and free improvisation still holds a key part in these long pieces (almost all in the 10+minute range). A strong proposition.
