opis: - ocena * * * * 1/2:
Portugalsko-norweskie Hamar Trio prezentuje energiczny, dziki i dynamiczny jazz, który rozsadza nasze wyobrażenie o free-jazzowej muzyce. Porywające improwizacje, fascynujące muzyczne eksperymenty, dążność do nieoczywistych muzycznych rozwiązań, instrumentacyjne innowacje - to polistylistyczny fundament tego albumu. Ale nie mogło być inaczej, bowiem trójka muzyków tworzących Hamar Trio, od ponad dekady nieustannie nas zaskakuje. Norweski klarnecista i saksofonista Klaus Ellerhusen Holm to współtwórca Honest John, Ballrogg, członek Paal Nilssen-Love Large Unit, Trondheim Jazz Orchestra i Arild Andersen Sekstett. Portugalski kontrabasista Hernâni Faustino jest jednym z filarów europejskiej awangardy, współtworzy słynne RED Trio, współpracuje z Nate'm Wooley'em, Lotte Anker, Jonem Irabagonem, Carlosem Zíngaro, Luísem Vicente, Rodrigo Amado. Skład uzupełnia portugalski drummer Nuno Morao, który współtworzy kameralistyczny zespół The Selva.

Muzycy Hamar Trio z niebezpiecznie wielu składników lepią bardzo sugestywną, żywą i ciepłą muzyczną opowieść, w której gatunkowy kompas, co rusz dostaje szału. Muzycy są mistrzami wolnej formy, choć nawiązania do dorobku choćby Dereka Bailey’a są wyraźne. Improwizują swobodnie, są nieprzewidywalni i zarazem czarujący - ich improwizacje są pełne przejrzystości, pozbawione hałaśliwego bałaganu. Egzotyczne rytmy, etniczne nawiązania do tradycyjnej muzyki portugalskiej, fragmenty słynnych awangardowych tematów jazzowych zostały wplecione w porywającą całość. Miliony rytmów tworzących zaskakujące rytmiczne sekwencje, ostra i wielobarwna harmonia, sonorystyczne olśnienia, wielka kompetencja w tworzeniu awangardowego superdania łączącego zmienne nastroje i tempa.

Muzyka Hamar Trio tętni życiem. Jest tutaj "wilczy" apetyt do grania, który owocuje niesamowitą, nowoczesną i dynamiczną muzyką.

Editor's info:
Here is an example of a specially well succeeded co-operation between a notorious representative of the Norwegian scene (Klaus Ellerhusen Holm) and two of the Portuguese one (Hernâni Faustino and Nuno Morao), combining the recordings of live presentations in a couple of spaces dedicated to creative music in Portugal, Salao Brazil (Coimbra) and SMUP (Parede). If you’re a Clean Feed fan you already listened other titles documented in both venues, by the likes of Steve Lehman, Ken Vandermark’s and Adam Lane’s Four Corners, Fredrik Nordstrom Quintet, Daniel Levin Quartet, Zanussi 5, Angles, Harris Heisenstadt’s Canada Day and others. “Yesterday is Here” has the same relevance, and it equals what you know of Holm from the bands Honest John, Ballrogg and Abaft the Beam, of Faustino from Red Trio and of Morao from The Selva: music committed to «celebrate the moment», to paraphrase Derek Bailey, only answering to the appeal of spontaneity and intuition, in a very natural and even organic way. The framing is in jazz and experimentation, meaning that everything else that may happen disregard labels and any sort of categorization. A party for your ears, in short.
“Yesterday Is Here” is a new release of “Clean Feed Records”. Album was recorded by “Hamar Trio”. It’s three great jazz masters – Klaus Ellerhusen Holm (clarinet, alto saxophone), Hernâni Faustino (double bass) and Nuno Morao (drums, percussion). “Hamar Trio” connects the innovative and modern tendencies of Norwegian and Portugal avant-garde jazz scene. Three musicians are the innovators of avant-garde jazz – they are searching for experimental ways of playing, produce weird and outrageous timbres and colorful expressions. The music is modern, bright, evocative and tremendous. The traditions, famous jazz themes, the roots of 1960’s and 1970’s avant-garde jazz are connected with music of famous jazz stars and original compositions by “Hamar Trio”. The improvisations are spontaneous and live – it’s changing all the time, obtains new colors, themes and sounds. Musicians like to experiment in all cases of musical language – that’s how they create interesting and bright sound.

“Yesterday Is Here” is energetic, wild and dynamic set of compositions. Album is based on free jazz and various styles of it. Free improvisations, fascinating musical experiments, searches of unusual musical decisions and weird timbres, the innovations in instrumentation’s section – that’s the main base of this album. The music is bright, evocative, vivid and warm. Compositions have bright and difficult musical language. Colorful, multi-layed and abstract musical pattern is consisted from dozens of different elements. The original compositions by trio musicians are connected with the excerpts or citations from the famous themes of Derek Bailey or other great jazz stars. The excerpts from the most famous themes are variated, modified and changed – the paraphrases of these themes are integrated in main musical pattern. That brought original, colorful and expressive sound to the album. Musicians are the masters of their art. They are improvising freely, wild and charming – improvisations are filled with bright. viragious, rolling and passionate bursts of energy. Millions of rhythms and rhythmic series, repetitive beats, sharp and colorful harmony, unusual timbres, experimental ways of playing, bordering dynamics, silmunateous connections of moods and tempos – all these elements are used very frequently in this album. The musicians improvising in the spot – just small part of their music is arranged before the concert. That creates an impression of emotional, bright, expressive, unpredictable and colorful sound. Musicians get through different moods and playing manners without any force – vivacious passages gently fit with slow and subtle excerpts, luminous and roaring blow outs or sweet, light and romantic pieces. After harsh and aggressive repetitive rhythmic or harmonic series there comes soft, relaxing and dreamy mood. All these changes are made in natural and warm manner, without forces or hard attacks. The musicians manage to create dozens of different pieces and episodes. Each of them is different from the others, but musicians get them all together in one place. The music is composed and constructed by principe of colliage, when contrasting episodes are played at the same time and are joined in one musical pattern. Roaring and sparkling blow outs, expressive solos, vibrant and tremendous sparkls of energy, passionate and light glissando, enchanting passages contain the main part of clarinet and saxophone improvisations. Klaus Ellerhusen Holm fuses together his own ideas, new point of view and the newest innovations of Norwegian avant-garde jazz scene. Scandinavian minimalism, ascetism, modernism and post-minimalism are fused with expressive, moving and scandalous improvisations. Hernâni Faustino’s double bass contain the main part of background, harmonic and rhythmic pattern. It beautifies the melodic line, who is leaded by reeds. Exotic rhythms, ethnic elements of traditional Portugal music, excerpts from the famous avant-garde jazz themes, charming and vibrant solos, sparkling and scandalous culminations or subtle, slow and abstract pieces are gently joined together in one place. Nuno Morao is a leader of drums section. He manages to create vibrant, tremendous, modern and dynamic rhythmic section. It’s independent from the other sections and has an attaching, bright, energetic and sparkling sound. Sharp and aggressive modern jazz rhythms, bright drum rolls, loud culminations, terrific and turbulent scandals, sweet and soft pieces or free, wild and tremendous improvisations – everything has its own place in his improvisations. The drums section is gorgeously illustrated by colorful percussion. The music of this album joins together Portugal, Norwegian, European and American avant-garde jazz and its traditions, the newest innovations and three original, great and impressive jazz masters. Together they create interesting, evocative and passionate sound.
The Hamar Trio consists of Klaus Ellerhusen Holm on clarinet and alto saxophone, Hernani Faustino on bass and Nuno Morao on drums and percussion. The music was recorded in November 2016 in Portugal and begins with "Yellow Plum," which opens the album with spare reed sounds, and barely heard percussion using feathering brushes, clarinet and long tones of bowed bass. They create an uncomfortable, unsettling sound collage, one that grows louder, coalescing into a collective improvisation as clarinet and bowed bass undulate in constant motion, leading into a quiet middle of abstract improvisation. It's a complex, tight act of spontaneous creation, growing gradually louder with sweeping clarinet and their loud/soft, light/dark dynamic setting the pace for the album. A deep and raw toned alto saxophone leads "Sjoorm" with taut bass in music that flexes its muscles and circulates well rhythmically, rough hewn and powerful, moving to a robust free improvisation, gaining momentum and spinning with centripetal force, open and unencumbered and playing with great enthusiasm. Gales of saxophone alternating with long alarming tones of sound and earthy plucked bass are met with incisive drumming carry them to the outer edge of improvisation and the conclusion of the performance. "Sour Apple" also uses long tones of saxophone rolling out over crisply played cymbals and rumbling drums invoking a mysterious feeling as the bass bounds along. The saxophone breaks out a little more clearly, playing an unaccompanied section, sounding naked and unadorned, and emotionally free, before the bass and drums crash back in driving the music faster and louder into an exciting free improvisation with covers an impressive length of time in a performance that is filled with great enthusiasm and eagerness, gradually downshifting in intensity, coalescing around a tight drum pattern for the closing. Unexpected sounds varying in pitch and strength give "Yesterday is Here" it's ailen soundscape, sounding unsettled, urgent and stressed. The percussive brushes paint shifting and shuffling layers while the saxophone emits a piercing, arcing sound that is almost painful to hear. They have become sound scientists, looking to see how far they can manipulate their instruments, seeking inner and outer space, juxtaposing silence with harrowing vibrations. They create strange and fascinating results, one gets the feeling that Sun Ra would be proud. Give them credit: their music is powerful and bracing stuff.
