THE BEST OF JAZZ on BBC Radio 2 and Branco Stoysin Trio
A track CALM BEFORE STORM from our 5th acclaimed album QUIET STREAM BREAKS THE ROCKS was played on Humphrey Lyttelton's The Best Of Jazz show on Monday 18th February...
LATEST CD REVIEW, Quiet Stream Breaks The Rocks album receives 4 STAR RATING
“Another beautiful album from this quiet virtuoso of the acoustic guitar. His clean, finger picked style showing a high degree of skill and inventiveness. The immaculate quality of the recording captures these qualities superbly.
This is a regular working band and the interaction between the three musicians is excellent throughout. Stoysin's signature acoustic guitar sound is at the heart of the music, his crystalline notes drawing out the full beauty of the folk based melodies. Booth's liquid bass glides and purrs in sympathetic support and Birch adds extra colour and texture utilising a wide array of percussive effects ranging from the sound of the traditional drum kit to the to the shimmer of the bell tree.
Stoysin's own compositions are largely in keeping with the style of the traditional material. Throughout the album the playing is unhurried and conversational and simultaneously serves and embellishes the flowing melodies. Towards the end of the album the players really increase the pace. Branco’s "Miss D" demonstrates their jazz chops as they improvise on a fast minor blues theme. Booth's aptly titled "Calm Before The Storm" is in similar vein with a rich solo bass introduction giving way to another dazzling display of the trio's jazz credentials as they improvise at breakneck speed on the chord changes of "Confirmation".
Stoysin's pastoral style harbours hidden strengths. There is real musical intelligence behind this relaxing, Sun drenched music.”
Ian Mann, 24dash.com (4 **** rating)

5th new album QUIET STREAM BREAKS THE ROCKS to be released in May...
but you can obtain the copy exclusively via JazzCDs website before its official release day!
Here is a first and full review by Chris Parker:
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.
Branco Stoysin Trio is currently recording their 5th new album. A lot of new original tunes, some classics from previous 4 acclaimed releases in new arrangements and of course several from ancient Yugoslav/Balkan traditional folk repertoire...Watch this space!
