Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Don't feel disconnected to the world if you don't know the name Cene Resnik. Only now all things happening in the fields of Slovenian jazz and improvised music start to be known outside the frontiers of this young European country born from the death of Tito's Jugoslavia. And what you can find there is really astonishing. You had a glimpse when Clean Feed released a recording by pianist extraordinaire Kaja Draksler - now it's time to discover the music of this tenor saxophonist who study and practice meditation and whose vision of what is normally called "free jazz" is tinted by his Buddhist beliefs. With the help of violinist Emanuele Parrini, double bassist Giovanni Maier and drummer Aljosa Jeric and Resnik forged a refreshing improvisational practice, free from any constraints but commited to the jazz language. No, the fact there's a tenor and a violin involved doesn't imply any special Albert Ayler influence - things are a bit more complex and less stereotyped. After all, what we would expect from someone who was a pupil of such different musicians like Archie Shepp and Joe Zawinul. Check it out and be surprised."-Clean Feed


Artist Biographies

"Cene Resnik graduated in saxophone at the Jazz conservatory in Klagenfurt in 2007.During his studies, he participated in workshops by Reggie Workman, Doug Hammond and later Joe Zawinul, with whom he had an opportunity to play with in the year of 2007 in Austria, Croatia and Lent festival in Maribor, Slovenia.

After graduating, he went to New York where he continued studies with various world-renowned musicians. One of his first close-encounter with improvised music was in New York at the Cecil Taylor/Tony Oxley concert, where he felt the world of free improvisation had opened up in front of him.

Last 12 years he is practicing Tibetan Buddhist meditation. He visited India on many occasions, mostly for the teachings of Lord Buddha and meditation retreats in Himalayan parts. His meditation teacher and guru is Most Venerable Lho Ontul Rinpoche.

His public performances are dedicated to all living beings, so they could experience the beauty of non-grasping, loving kindness and compassion."
