Jason Weiss, Le Ventre et l’Oreille, has chosen the best debut album of the year 2019:
Giraffa Records/MusikklosenStabat Mater
Extremely powerful music that takes its cue from open-mindedness and the sheer joy of playing.
- Kjell Moe, Nordlys
A nifty mix of old-school ECM folk-jazz and 1970s Alice Coltrane soul-on-the-sleeve spiritual adventurism.
- Bird Is The Worm
This is raw, wild and ill-mannered jazz with no restrictions or rules, the way free jazz was meant to be.
- Gudbrandsølen Dagningen (GD)
Free Spirited Jazz Ensemble led by Mathilde Grooss ViddalMore
