Drummer Andreas Werlin also produced the album.
  • Daniel Erdmann,Aki Takase,Johannes Fink,Dag Magnus Narvesen,DJ Illvibe “Monday In Budapest” from Thema Prima (BMC Records)
    • Having feted a number of significant composers in the past – from Fats Waller, W.C. Handy and Duke Ellington to Thelonious Monk, Ornette Coleman and Eric Dolphy – this recent collaboration of Takase’s with DJ Illvibe reveals a culmination of the pianist’s fascination and influence of a non-jazz composer this time around in Conlon Nancarrow .Along with DJ Illvibe, the members of the band here are tenor/soprano saxophonist Daniel Erdmann, bassist Johannes Fink and drummer Dag Magnus Narvesen. And the selections they play herein are a result of her decades-long work as a composer. With this electro-acoustic instrumentation in mind, however, only a few of the tunes are actually notated. She admits, the bigger part of it is definitely improvised. (…) I wanted to show several ways, – with different times and speeds – the dynamics simultaneously together, and through them to achieve overlapping and crossings. (..) The music shows my direction. I am very satisfied with the results… Our music is expression of freedom and a hymn to life.
  • Sylvie Courvoisier & Mark Feldman “Éclats for Ornette” from Time Gone Out (Intakt)
    • Recorded at the Oktaven Audio studio in New York, this is a culmination of many years of collaboration. The album shows how Sylvie’s  music has freed itself from any reference and plays in radical singularity: between power and restraint, energy and fragility, energie and softness. Recorded on September 29, 2018, by Ryan Streber at Oktaven Audio, Mt Vernon, NY.
