Fiedler, Joe Trio: Plays the Music of Albert Mangelsdorff (Clean Feed)
Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"It is difficult to imagine, given his reputation as one of the most important jazz trombonists of the past thirty or forty years, that nobody has recorded a tribute album of the tunes of the great German jazz trombonist, Albert Mangelsdorff. That is, until now. This ambitious - some might call it audacious - project from New York-based trombonist Joe Fiedler directly confronts several of the better known of these tricky and difficult tunes, and puts his individual stamp on each one. Fiedler is the perfect person to perform the Mangelsdorff book. As a trombonist, and an extraordinary one, Fiedler exploits Mangelsdorff's sophisticated, complex writing, which focuses on the expansive possibilities of the horn. Fiedler has a total command of the technique of multi-phonics (the ability to play and sing a note simultaneously, leading to the illusion of self-harmonizing) that characterizes much of Mangelsdorff's work, and like his German role model, Fiedler is a brilliant soloist in his own right, something that comes through clearly on these tracks. Too, the younger trombonist understands that the best form of flattery comes not from aping but from reinterpreting, something Fiedler is careful to do here. Joe Fiedler has seemingly done the impossible: He has masterminded a tribute never attempted before, and he has succeeded in making the songs his own."-Clean Feed
