Solborg 4+4+1

Solborg 4+4+1 by Mark Solborg
Released: Jul 2012
Label: ILK Music
At a 2010 Copenhagen festival, guitarist Solborg presented his quartet, augmented with four more horns and one additional "featured soloist," the sax/clarinetist powerhouse Chris Speed. What luck that it was recorded! Opener "Mrs. Pedersen Takes the Tram" shows how wide ranging is Solborg's jazz-ensemble ear: After flitting around with disintegrating rhythmic accents and shifting textures for his horns, the piece finds a consistent time, right before Speed cuts loose with a solo that moves from post-bop blues to free wailing. The other pieces, though mostly shorter, are no less inventive.
