CROME - Komorebi
Cat. no: UTR4942
Release Date: 9th July 2021
The Swiss crossover ensemble CROME experiments with two different synergies: between contemporary jazz and chamber music, and between saxophone and string quartet.
Saxophonist Sam Urscheler has created a unique style of music for his quintet: written composition blends with improvisation, flavours of jazz, classical and world music are combined with modern playing techniques, and all five musicians are given an equal chance to “have their say”. From funky rhythms to lyrical melodies, wild solos to floating soundscapes - CROME’s first album, “Komorebi”, pulls out all the stops.
CROME moves off the beaten track with an unusual formation (string quartet with saxophone) - Leader and saxophonist Sam Urscheler has created the compositions and arrangements for the ensemble in a unique style between jazz, classical and world music - Longing melodies meet funky rhythms, film music-like soundscapes are lined with creative solos - Jazz fan or classical music lover: there is something for everyone
