Boeren, Eric 4tet: Song for Tracy the Turtle - Live in Brugge 2004 (Clean Feed)
Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"In jazz and improvisation, no two performances are alike. And if there's no recordings of a particularly good concert, only memory can vaguely testify what happened on stage - something more easy to maintain by the audience than it is for the musicians themselves. Musicians are so involved that it is hard to distance themselves from the music played. Knowing this, Dutch cornetist Eric Boeren had a wonderful surprise when a friend showed him a tape of the radio transmition of a gig he played with his quartet (with Michael Moore, Wilbert De Joode and Paul Lovens), in 2004, during the Jazz Brugge Festival in Belgium.

Eric got excited with the quality of both the music and the recording, and that document is finally available to everybody interested. Six years after it sounded to all those presents in Brugges' Concertgebouw. "Song For Tracy The Turtle" shows us a quartet molded in the Ornette Coleman concept (two of the 10 tracks included are compositions by the author of "Shape of Jazz to Come". One is a mix of Boeren's and Coleman's writings), but distintcively with a clear European approach. The music is energetic, sometimes even quite abstract, with lots of swing.. Intentionally playful and, when decisions have to be made, always with a"stream-of-consciousness". Note their tricky counterpoints."-Clean Feed
