Blue Bamboo, Jazz and Other Improvisations | Melinda Maxwell Oboe and Cor Anglais
Mark Pringle Piano, Sebastian Dessanay Bass, Liam Halloran Vibes and Drums
Oboe Classics CC2033
Since the early 90s Melinda Maxwell has been expanding the contemporary oboe repertoire with great confidence, Blue bamboo is no exception. Her latest album with Mark Pringle (piano), Sebastiano Dessanay (bass) and Liam Halloran (drums, vibes) crosses a wide range of jazz improvisations, from 12 tone solo improv, classical jazz sets and free jazz. It is the perfect album for anyone wanting to explore and expand their knowledge of 21st century music in a relaxed, easy and informal setting.
“She takes us to a particularly sophisticated Jazz lounge with Speak Low by Kurt Weill in a meltingly beautiful rendition on cor anglais… Melinda’s backing group…has a fluency and conversational interplay that’s the bedrock of the album. Their playing is spacious, well-judged and supportive…The current album is both a great personal achievement and hopefully a gateway to further listening pleasure…Great artist at the peak of her powers.” John Harle, BDRS
