MANFRED BRUNDL double-bass HUGO READ soprano, alto saxophone ACHIM KAUFMANN piano, rhodes JONAS BURGWINKEL drums and LIISI KOIKSON vocals WOLFGANG SCHLUTER vibes Manfred BrUndl is a man who works meticulously. He is not an iconoclast, he doesn't do things for the sake of it, and he isn't a phoney or someone intent on burying traditions. Whatever he does, he does it in a well-considered way, because he isn't starting from scratch. Finding trace elements that criss-crossedly add up, cross-hatch and densify, but still foremost leave spaces for improvisation. Or even open them up in the first place. The spaces that BrUndl composes are broadly conceived. They are not sterilely furnished or even blocked up. They stimulate curiosity. Each of Manfred BrUndl's CDs had this certain More that distinguished them from the bulk of modern jazz recordings and made them solitaires. Concepts, subtexts, cross-connections and crucial experiences with other arts or when travelling, distilled into compositions, give his recordings a certain ambiguity at the very least. He is an excellent bassist anyway. And Manfred BrUndl has got exactly the right people to furnish his spaces. Soprano and alto saxophone player Hugo Read, the drummer Jonas Burgwinkel, pianist Achim Kaufmann, the enormously popular Estonian singer Liisi Koikson and the wellknown vibraphonist Wolfgang SchlUter. This music bounces, is carried by and revels in originality, and BrUndl is at times the quiet and deep voice from the back that serves his mission, but he can also step to the forefront in a fresh and nuanced manner. It all adds up to an impression of infectious vitality.
