ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"a fullblooded performer of the Nordic jazz sound" - Lasse Haugen Jazznytt No2.2011
FULL REVIEW:
Daniel Rorke "San'an"
Daniel Rorke - (s), Hilmar Jensson - (g), Rune Nergaard - (b), Per Oddvar Johansen - (d)
Satu 0902
The Australian saxophonist Daniel Rorke is inspired by the Japanese Instrument Shakuhachi, a bamboo-like wind instrument. Rapturous bamboo possibilities are cultivated on the album San'an. Different styles and genres are strongly represented here. The composer Rorke has also been joined by a legendary lineup that consists of highly productive jazz musicians with different backgrounds and nationalities. We recognize the Icelandic guitarist Hilmar Jensson who has worked with, among others, Jim Black's Alas No Axis. Otherwise, the quartet consists of two strong jazz names Daniel Rorke has met through the jazz community of Trondheim, Rune Nergaard on bass and Per Oddvar Johansen on drums. This is also a bit of the secret behind the album San'an, not least, it was recorded in the Rainbow Studio, making this album a master meeting of jazz musicians. One should be careful to compare with this with previous and other major releases, but Fluctuations, Metamorphoses is a groundbreaking introduction where Hilmar Jensson entirely profits. Daniel Rorke's years in Trondheim have made him Daniel Rorke "San'an"

ABOUT:
Daniel Rorke Saxophones / Hilmar Jensson Guitar / Rune Nergaard Bass / Per Oddvar Johansen Drums

Recorded by Jan Erik Kongshaug in Rainbow Studios Oslo, Norway, August 2009.

This recording draws influence from the music of the Japanese shakuhachi, contemporary electronica, Scandinavian folk music, both European and American jazz traditions as well as tonal, atonal and microtonal composition. The majority of the tunes are penned by the saxophonist who is in good company. Many jazz fans will know Icelandic guitarist Hilmar Jensson from his work with Jim Black's Alas No Axis. Per Oddvar Johansen has a number of ECM releaces under his belt with The Source, Trygve Seim and Christian Wallumrød while Rune Nergaard perfoms regularly with Bushman's Revenge who can be heard on the Runegrammofon label.
