Max Nagl "Trio Flamingos" A / USA
Max Nagl, saxophon, Bradley Jones, bass, Otto Lechner, accordeon 

It might be seen as a very personal, extraordinary way of hommage to Charles Mingus and his music "Flamingos", which is kind of a polystylistic Kaleidoscope with break-outs and drop-outs from and into various directions, not at all rational but an intensely entertaining trip. . . Peter Rüedi

Album of the week: Max Nagl Trio falarm ****
"This is the more, er, conventional side of Austrian saxophonist Max Naglīs oeuvre, the other being a roller-coaster ride of sample, crazy juxtapositions and his own multi-instrumental flair. Here his sax carries flashes of an array of influences, including Ornette Coleman, though the music is nearer that of Joseph Jarmanīs wonderful trio with Johnny Dyani and Don Moye. SInce the 1960s this musical territory has too often been usurped by those with only angst and anger - or nothing - to express. Nagl does not just possess an immeasurably wider emotional palette, he has a profound grasp of how to play (in both senses of the word) with shape, structure and light and shade. The other players - bassist Vincenz Wizlsperger and drummer Paul Skrepek - are up to the leaderīs stunning levels of invention and flexibility, as they flick from robustness to fragility. There is a rare chance to see Nagl performing in the flesh with regular collaborator Josef Novotny at the Harbourside Brasserie on Monday, as part of the annual What Is Music? festival."
