Reviews of Branco Stoysin

 

01/09/2009 Robert Shore, JAZZWISE

About INEXHAUSTIBLE album: “Confident and highly enjoyable set of melody-led, Sunshine-filled tunes. If you’re feeling blue and want to be filled with quiet rapture and measured joy this disc could be just the mood-enhancer you need.”

 

02/04/2007 Eddie Russel, Country Eastern Outlaw For Piece Radio Show, Columbus, Texas, USA.

QUIET STREAM BREAKS THE ROCKS "A wonderful new album with a charge of radiance somewhere between spring flowers and summer shade… ‘Quiet Stream Breaks The Rocks ' , the latest effort by the Branco Stoysin Trio...is yet another ear-pleasing masterpiece." Eddie Russell, Country Eastern Outlaw For Peace Radio Show, Columbus, Texas, USA.

Branco Stoysin Trio, 5th new album
“QUIET STREAM BREAKS THE ROCKS”
on Sun Recordings label.


Full review by Chris Parker, “Jazz at Ronnie Scott’s” and “Vortex”, March 2007:


“This is the fifth album from Branco Stoysin, a self-taught guitarist born in Novi Sad in the former Yugoslavia, and like his others, it showcases not only his extraordinary yet entirely natural-sounding technique but also his wide-ranging musical taste, which embraces everything from bop (the album concludes with a rousing exploration of the changes of 'Confirmation') to Brazilian and Yugoslav traditional music.

His rhythm section, Leslee Booth on 6-string electric bass and drummer Buster Birch, provide discreet, supple but surprisingly powerful support throughout, but it is Stoysin's filigree delicacy – particularly on the plangent traditional melodies that constitute the centrepiece of the album, but also on his originals, whether they're minor blues ('Miss D'), solo features ('Amber') or absorbing multi-tempo pieces (the title-track and its successor, 'Where a River Meets the Sea') – that marks him out as one of the most skilful, lyrical acoustic guitarists on the current scene.

His ear for an affecting melody is faultless, and the fluency of his improvisations ditto; this is an unalloyed treat throughout its 52 minutes and comes warmly recommended.” C.P.

"A truly individual voice on the instrument. He is a real find, a definitive original style laced with melodic and enthralling Eastern European Folk touches. Beautiful...Marvellous"

Chrissie Murray, Jazzwise

AND REVIEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD:
"...Every note is a pearl! His guitar is talking heartful
stories... great band...can't stop listening...can't get enough of it..."
Gerd Stassen, Radio EVW, Germany (Dec.2005./Jan.2006.)

 

01/01/2006 Roger Holdsworth, The Global Village, AUSTRALIA.

"Branco Stoysin's guitar shimmers through old songs and new, evoking the historic towns, village lives and sweet loves of a lost Yugoslavia. Memories of tunes and songs handed down through generations of musicians are brought to life and contemporary relevance in Branco Stoysin's skilful and sensitive hands and soul."
Roger Holdsworth, Presenter: 'The Global Village' PBS-FM 106.7: Melbourne, Australia (Jan. 2006.)

 

01/12/2005 Eddie Russell,Columbus, Texas, USA

" Every note is a pure joy to listen to. The sound of the amazing guitar styling on Branco Stoysin's spectacular "Lily of the Valley" CD brought about joy and reflection to my every sense of well being as he seems to perform like a song painter who captures the feel of each selection. Highly recommended as one of the best instrumental CDs that I've ever received in 15 years of radio."
Eddie Russell , host of ' The Country Eastern / Outlaw For Peace Radio Show ' , Columbus, Texas, USA. ( Dec. 2005.)
