Coryell & Morello - Night of Jazz Guitars (CD)
Release Date: 08/09/11
Four excellent virtuoso and visionary players unify their strengths for a fearless high-wire act featuring exciting and electrifying dialogues. Never before has jazz guitar experienced such a mighty renaissance! For Helmut Kagerer, Paulo Morello, Andreas Dombert, and guest star Larry Coryell, teamwork means much more than a blueprint of the formula Great Guitars. These gentlemen define the pure distillation of their stringed work, the intermingling of ideas and chords in a completely new way. Texas-born string wizard Larry Coryell is a pioneer in the fusion genre, having created a breathtaking that mixes blues, bebop, and rock. He has played with John McLaughlin, Paco De Lucia, Chick Corea, Billy Cobham, Chet Baker, Sonny Rollins, and the Brecker Brothers, amongst others. Helmut Kagerer is one of the most interesting guitarists in the European jazz scene. He has displayed his abilities as composer, solo player, and sensitive accompanist in team works with Jimmy Cobb, Clark Terry, Red Holloway, Houston Person, Peter Bernstein, and Sam Rivers. Paulo Morello became internationally known through his project Bossa Nova Legends with Grammy winner Leny Andrade and bossa nova star Johnny Alf Morello. The success of this project resulted in further collaborations with Jimmy Smith, Roberta Gambarini, Paul Kuhn, Ivan Lins, Michael P. Mossman, and André Ceccarelli. Andreas Dombert is a musician with an impressive and wide-ranging capability. Having enjoyed a classical formation, he established himself not only as pop musician with successes in the charts, but also as a jazzman. Within the German series Jazzthing Next Generation he surprised his listeners with a mix of traditional guitar and electronica in his project Dombert's Urban Jazz.
