Liner Notes:
Here is another CD edition of the ‘Bandstand Learning with Role Models’ presented at the finale of the Jazzaar Festival 2018 featuring the Swiss Youth Jazz Orchestra (SYJO) and their guest artists, under the direction of Fritz K Renold. This is a collection of original compositions written by Renold and Gil Goldstein portraying a dialog between cultures separated by the Atlantic ocean, through the idioms of Jazz, European folk and popular music. The theme and the odd tune titles address the curious bumps in the current socio-economic road affecting both sides of the Atlantic. Thus the project itself was an exercise profoundly demonstrating the possibility of unity in diversity on many levels from start to finish reflecting Jazzaar’s working motto: ‘Perfection is found in the peaceful handling of imperfection’.
The opening track “Servare Modum Finemque Tenare” (latin for “be moderate and never lose sight of the goal”) shifts between Salsa and Swing feels with ease, an arrangement by Christian Jacob. In “Rites of passage” written by Renold, the unusual pair - EWI and the accordion are delightfully at home with the groove. “Equal Rights” is a fusion piece arranged by the young and gifted Guy Bernfeld and an ideal we never cease to strive for. There’s also something to be said about a sense of “Perpetual Optimism” that lingers even in the midst of change and upheaval, well aroused in the arrangement by Tim Akers. “Us the People” arranged by Christian Jacob connotes the possible harmony and unity to be anticipated after 2 centuries of modern democratic rule. Blending Balkan music with Tango in “Citizen Outside the Box” arranged by Inna Dudukina rocked the crew of role models and young prodigies of the SYJO. “Speak Freely” says it all, a Gil Goldstein arrangement of Renold’s 2-motif composition. On “Uphold the Constitution” arranged by Tim Akers the Nordic melody lines played by the soprano sax and guitar with a funky rhythm section celebrate a simple democracy as practiced in Switzerland, home of Jazzaar Festival and the SYJO. “Celtic Warriors” composed and arranged by Fritz K Renold reflects upon the Irish influence in Jazz and popular music featuring the soprano sax, accordion and keyboards using contemporary jazz lines. The closing tune is a composition by Gil Goldstein called “A Swiss and American Love Song” that marries Swiss folkloric music with a deep southern blues of King Oliver! The haunting Swiss alphorn sound is evoked by the combination of Flügelhorn, Trombone and Tuba. The concert featured passionate solos by Frank Greene, Dmitry Zinakov, Bill Pierce, Felix Piringer, Mathieu Bitz, Tom ‘Bones’ Malone, Gil Goldstein, Jérémy Lenoir, Kabir Sehgal, Sharon Renold, Michael Baker, and Andrin Stettler.
