.: interlúdio :. Umo Jazz Orchestra (1997)

IM-PER-DÍ-VEL !!!

Não sou um grande especialista, mas tenho a impressão de que a cena do jazz europeu é hoje mais interessante do que  norte-americana. Estes finlandeses são bons demais e formam uma extraordinária orquestra com os pés firmados no campo do jazz. Confira a faixa de abertura enganosamente chamada, Frozen Petals com seus saxofonistas tenor ao estilo Brecker com uma verdadeira “tempestade perfeita” acontecendo atrás dele. Os caras amam muitas vozes, contrapontos, etc.

Financiado pela cidade de Helsinque, pela Finnish Broadcasting Company e pelo Ministério da Educação, a UMO é algo como a orquestra nacional de jazz da Finlândia. A big band foi fundada por músicos que tocavam na Radio Dance Orchestra do país, que existe desde 1957. A UMO fez turnês por todo o mundo e se apresentou com músicos de jazz como Thad Jones, Dizzy Gillespie, Larry Coryell, Joe Williams, McCoy Tyner e Muhal Richard Abrams, entre outros.
