George Haslam, Various


Label: Slam Productions

Format: CD

Genre: Jazz



Slam Productions presents Loveland Concert of free improvisation with British George Haslam, Italian Stefano Pastor, Czechs Jan Faix and Jan Šikl plus Slovak Jozef Láska (resident in Prague, Czech Republic, for many years).

This recording is taken from a live concert, held in 2010 in Prague in the Czech Republic. George Haslam on baritone sax and tarogato has been playing since 2002 with local musicians, here he is on a short tour with Stefano Pastor on violin and rhythm. consisting of Jan Faix on synthesizer and melodica, Jozef Láska on double bass and electric bass and Jan Šikl on drums. There are seventy rather varied minutes in which you listen to the typical energy of a live concert, with very intense moments, sometimes you go free, while some solos on Faix synthesizer sometimes remind Joe Zawinul in his most adventurous performances. The music flows well supported by the rhythm, Láska good at the electric bass, which is the propeller to the ideas of Haslam and Pastor. The compositions are heterogeneous in terms of inspiration, but it matters little, the quintet is in harmony with each other and the energy they pour into the performances is immediately transmitted to the listener. Pastoral and the Whither Tomorrow ending? they are full of free moments, in which the saxophone and the violin find an unusual understanding with electronic sounds. A fresh record, without too many speculations, in which everything flows without inhibitions. - Vittorio lo Conte
