Mateen, Sabir: Urdla XXX (RogueArt)
Label: RogueArt    
Released in: France    

"The dramatic act of this performance draws a deambulatory line colouring each phase in the sound of the required instrument; large discursive logic intensity in the atmosphere appropriate to each segment. After his entry "City of Lyon" which sets the happening hic et nunc, the second piece "Art Dance" on alto clarinet is heard as a twirling questioning with changes of mood from anger to melancholy: bal(l)ade autumnal de Dakka Du Boo Yu", again on the clarinet."Music is Sound, Sound is Music" thunders suddenly like an urgent manifesto poem. From now on, it's the alto saxophone that will lead the evening serenade. Is it Lyon which assonance calls for the invocation of Jimmy Lyons? The chant becomes progressively more intimate, less "freenetic" and the evening comes to an end in a melodious serenity.

Poetic episode in the luxuriant existence of URDLA, this concert offered as a present to its adepts will remain thanks to RogueArt, a pearl in the treasury of progressive music."-Max Schoendorff, from the liner notes
