Nick Sanders & Logan Strosahl: Janus

(SUNNYSIDE 1469)

★★★★ (4 stars)
By – Jürg Sommer

 

Pianist Nick Sanders and Logan Strosahl (alto / tenor saxophone) met at the New England Conservatory in Boston, and the chemistry between the two was so good that they have been exploring musical boundaries improvisation-ally for the last 10 years.  Their new CD presents an adventurous program that stretches from the 14th century to Baroque, Classical, Bebop, Cooljazz, Monk, and Olivier Messiaen.

 

Conclusion: ambitious, original, passionate, cheeky and so amazingly astonishingly unpretentious.  These two guys are still to be discovered in Europe. Their current CD “Janus” is highly recommended!
