Biography of Daniel Rorke

"a fullblooded performer of the Nordic jazz sound"
- Lasse Haugen Jazznytt No2.2011

REVIEW:
Daniel Rorke "San'an"

The Australian saxophonist Daniel Rorke is inspired by the Japanese Instrument Shakuhachi, a bamboo-like wind instrument. Rapturous bamboo possibilities are cultivated on the album San'an. Different styles and genres are strongly represented here. The composer Rorke has also been joined by a legendary lineup that consists of highly productive jazz musicians with different backgrounds and nationalities. We recognize the Icelandic guitarist Hilmar Jensson who has worked with, among others, Jim Black's Alas No Axis. Otherwise, the quartet consists of two strong jazz names Daniel Rorke has met through the jazz community of Trondheim, Rune Nergaard on bass and Per Oddvar Johansen on drums. This is also a bit of the secret behind the album San'an, not least, it was recorded in the Rainbow Studio, making this album a master meeting of jazz musicians. One should be careful to compare with this with previous and other major releases, but Fluctuations, Metamorphoses is a groundbreaking introduction where Hilmar Jensson entirely profits. Daniel Rorke's years in Trondheim have made him a fullblooded performer of the Nordic jazz sound.
