AUDIO - Wykonanie * * * */ Nagranie * * * *
Kathrine Windfield jest bez wątpienia nieprzeciętnie uzdolnioną liderką piętnastoosobowej orkiestry. Komponuje, aranżuje oraz gra swobodnie na fortepianie. Poprzednim debiutanckim albumem "Aircraft" zdobyła tytuł Młodego Talentu Roku w Danii.

W skład jej formacji o dość typowej obsadzie wchodzą młodzi muzycy skandynawscy, a wśród nich znalazł się też nasz młodziutki talent saksofonowy - Jakub Więcek (niestety, nie dane mu było popisać się żadną solówką). Na "Latency" brzmienia poszczególnych sekcji są spójne - jak przystało na rasowy big-band. Wychodząc z tradycyjnego brzmienia dużych składów jazzowych i opierając swe kompozycje na swingujących rytmach, Windfiled napisała całkiem współczesne instrumentacje: wytrawne, z niebanalnymi zwrotami akcji, z pełną paletą pastelowych brzmień sekcji trąbek, puzonów i saksofonów. Tym samym bliżej jej produkcjom do melancholijnych brzmień orkiestr Stana Kentona czy Carli Bley niż pełnego witalności Quincy`ego Jonesa.

Większość utworów ma stonowaną strukturę, natomiast w zamykającym album "Double Fleisch" zarówno kompozytorka jak i orkiestra pomknęli raźno w krainę rozwichrzonych harmonii i wartkiej linii melodycznej. Szkoda, że na kompakcie nie znalazło się więcej takich utworów.

Editor's Info:
30-year old pianist, composer, arranger and bandleader Kathrine Windfeld exploded on the Danish jazz scene. No one expected that the young rising star with her own big band would reap ecstatic reviews eve- rywhere and earn a Danish Music Award for “New Danish Jazz Artist of the Year” for her sensational debut album AIRCRAFT featuring her own compositions and arrangements. The album was also nominated in the “Album of the Year” category and Kathrine for “Composer of the Year”. A debut album rarely introduces a new name with so much posi- tive response.

Kahtrine Windfeld was born and raised in Svendborg on the Danish island Funen. After high school and a semester at The Rhythmic High School she took a Bachelor degree in musicology at the University of Copenhagen, where she learned classical and rhythmic choir condu- cting, band leadership and big band arranging. Subsequently she stu- died piano at Fridhems Folkhögskola. In 2012 she was accepted at the Conservatory in Malmoe, Sweden. Here she gathered the first edition of the Kathrine Windfeld Big Band. Since then things have moved swiftly. Kathrine Windfeld Big Band was hired as the Monday night orchestra at The Standard Jazz Club in Copenhagen, where they played with top names such as Mike Stern (USA), Edda Magnason, Anders Bergkrantz (Sweden) and Nancy Harms (USA). Kathrine arranged each featured artist’s original music for the concerts. Outside her work with her own bands - ranging from quartet to big band – and the first performance of a work written for the Danish Radio Big Band, she is also booked as “Artist in Residence” at Codarts New Talent Big Band in Holland and Prime Time Orchestra in Norway for the autumn season 2017.

Kathrine Windfeld Big Band was chosen among the exclusive few to perform at Jazzahead in Bremen, Germany for an enthusiastic gathering of international bookers and music business people, and more than 50 gigs later Kathrine and her band were ready to record the difficult no. 2. She has written new compositions that once again merge a sense of tra- dition with innovation and a mixture of intense, cocky grooves, rhyth- mic twists, sophisticated harmonic passages, poetic ballads and fiery ostinatos in explosive arrangements performed by a youthful, charismatic team of razor sharp ensemble musicians and star quality soloists. The new album features fewer classic swing themes. The overall sound is more modern and contemporary than her debut, recorded three years ago and before she or the band had performed in public. There has been a lot of development in the ensemble and the band book. The musicians have developed, the soloists are even stronger, the interplay is even more concise, and Windfeld has become an even better composer and arranger. LATENCY is a more mature work performed by a tighter band, but the burning energy, the ambition and the enthusiasm from the debut is still intact!

In Kathrine’s hands big band music is not a stale genre. She gives the big band tradition a refreshingly light touch and rich nuances. It is a plea- sure to experience the emergence of a vital and apparently unstoppable force like Kathrine Windfeld with her original, intelligent and chal- lenging music. Her music sounds good and it swings. She has studied the old masters, but while she by no means ignores tradition, she insists on putting her personal imprint on a hard-tried genre. It is with good reason that she has been called “Scandinavia’s new big band star” follo- wed by admonishments to follow her “...because she has come to stay!”
