Vladimir Nabokov: the master of "chamber music in prose" (literary critic Marcel Reich-Ranicki) and composer of crackling word sonatas. Franz Koglmann: a commuter between jazz/avant-garde and literature, and writer of intimate sound novellas. It was only a matter of time before Koglmann would create "Music on Nabokov," and transform literary motifs and characters into music. Together with his Monoblue Quartet (Tony Coe, clarinet/saxophone, Ed Renshaw, guitar, Peter Herbert, bass) the trumpeter Koglmann sets out to explore Nabokov's cool sensuality. Even though the cover screams "Lo-lee-ta," after Nabokov's most famous novel, the music on the album is dynamically detached chamber jazz, yet of intense expressiveness. And in between, Koglmann and the keyboarder/electronics specialist Wolfgang Mitterer insert echoes that seem to come from another world.
