Dirt & Soil

Description

Sensitivity and rebellion - Austrian guitar-player/composer Andy Manndorff masters all the facets of modern jazz. As one of those musicians who have stopped regarding jazz as an American export article, his aesthetics are based on his own cultural and biographical identity. He is a true stylist who has developed something like his own language. Since the release of his trio CD You break it you own it (2008), the audience and critics have discovered a new Andy Manndorff. A paradigm change in the Manndorffian oeuvre was stated: A thoughtful, absorbing, new approach (Jazzwise Magazine, UK). On his new album Dirt & Soil, Andy Manndorff is continuing down this path. Manndorff translates two archetypical landscapes into musical language. Dirt is raw earth energy: dust from country roads; grime from the big city; the ferocity of art and wanton sex appeal - attraction and repulsion at the same time. Soil by contrast represents cultivated land: a field, the groomed garden. Andy Manndorff presents his music with a top-class quartet: Clemens Wenger (piano, keyboards, live electronics) . Stomu Takeishi (electric bass) Ted Poor (drummer)
