Active since 2013, this ever-changing band was formed by multi-reedist Joachim Badenhorst, blending jazz, post-rock, noise, lo- fi, psychedelica, and ambient music into a potent brew, as heard here in this septet rendering performing live at the 2015 Ljubljana Jazz Festival.
Carate Urio Orchestra (Badenhorst / Olaffson / Olaffson / Soniano / Niggenkemper / Loriot / Roig)
Label: Clean Feed
Released in: Portugal
"Carate Urio Orchestra was founded by Joachim Badenhorst in 2012 fulfilling a longtime dream of his to form a larger ensemble. He chose musicians from his smaller groupings such as Rawfishboys, Baloni, Mogil, Red Rocket and Os Meus Shorts.
Carate Urio Orchestra’s consists of a pool of players, with changing line-up. Carate Urio Orchestra plays in different formations, from trio to septet."-Carate Urio website
"Recorded live in the Ljubljana Jazz Festival (Slovenia), the Carate Urio Orchestra isn't really a big band - and indeed it can sound like one - but a septet. One piece can go from the most sweet pop song format (all the musicians sing) to extreme noise music, with several shades in between, covering a multitude of trans-idiomatic situations, be it psychedelic rock ambiances, Mingus-like orchestrations or something else yet to define.
Coming from different European origins, the musicians involved - Joachim Badenhorst, Eirikur Orri Olafsson, Sean Carpio, Brice Soniano, Pascal Niggenkemper, Frantz Loriot and Nico Roig - go through all those metamorphosis with the same naturalness and savoir-faire. The message is self-evident: in today's creative music, every vocabulary and process is not only permissible but also desirable. If jazz is an inclusive music genre since its start, that's what you have here, taking that principle to the last consequences."-Clean Feed
