Stenson, Bobo - War Orphans

SKU 28-ECM 1604
Bobo Stenson: piano
Anders Jormin: double bass
Jon Christensen: drums

“Characteristically broad in its stylistic range, this 1997 recording begins with a tune by Cuban singer-songwriter Silvio Rodríguez and ends with Duke Ellington’s “Melancholia”. In between are original contributions by Anders Jormin and Bobo Stenson and two pieces by Ornette Coleman, including the deeply-felt title track. “There is great freedom in Ornette’s melodies,” says Swedish pianist Stenson, a masterful player who subtly explores the emotional atmosphere of every tune. “In all tempos, in all keys, in all musical situations, his notes hang in the air like existential moments of coming into being.” -Jazz Times”
