SKU Clean Feed CF 314
Kjetil Møster tenor and soprano saxofone, clarinet / Jørgen Mathisen tenor saxophone and clarinet Eirik Hegdal baritone saxophone and clarinet / Gard Nilssen drums / Per Zanussi double bass

"Recorded live in Coimbra, Portugal, during the 2013 edition of the Jazz ao Centro festival, this is how the quintet led by Per Zanussi sounds on stage. Energetic and lyrical, combining free improvisation and melodic structures, “Live in Coimbra” offers a unique, almost surrealistic perspective of the jazz idiom. The saxophone front (doubled with clarinets) is half of the secret: Kjetil Moster, Eirik Hegdal and Jorgen Mathisen seamlessly move between sounding like the entire horn section of a jazz big band and a woodwind chamber ensemble. Behind them is the always assertive bass played by Zanussi, and the motoric drums of Gard Nilssen. The music is funky, with a rhytmic undercurrent at all times. Zanussi 5 also delve into strange, cinematic soundscapes, reminiscent of fifties exotica. It’s like a kaleidoscope, always changing colors and shapes. Just listen."
