rec. Live at Teatro Puccini Merano (I) 2005

"Simplistically Sweet Alps is intent on updating
19th and 20th century concepts, while Compositions is wedded to 21st
century exploration. Adding his own hard-swinging organ riffs and the intense alto saxophone
solos of Austrian Florian Bramböck to the harmonies of an 18-piece Italian
banda conducted by Helga Plankensteiner, Italian composer Michael Lösch
dexterously melds traditional alpine sounds with contemporary jazz. Using
the techniques and colors available from this folkloric band, Lösch
pinpoints the reality that ensembles such as the Italian Instabile Orchestra
are actually an outgrowth of a rich brass band history.
Furthermore the keyboardist, who studied at New York’s Manhattan School
of Music as well as in Italy and has played with a wide-variety of Italian
jazzers, has composed lines which not only showcase the expected talents
of Bramböck – who usually plays in the Vienna Art Orchestra – but takes
advantage of the band members’ skills as well.Simplistically Sweet Alps is intent on updating
