|JASKULKE & WYLEZOL ~ DUODRAM LALALA KONCERT|
NOT ON LABEL ~ POLAND ~ Jazz
Recorded: 2012 Released: 2012
This is an album by Polish duo DuoDramFind albums by this artist, which pairs pianists / composers Slawomir JaskulkeFind albums by this artist and Piotr WylezolFind albums by this artist. Recorded live, the album presents five original compositions (three by Jaskulke and two by Wylezol) and one composition by Kenny WheelerFind albums by this artist, all performed on two pianos.
It is very difficult to relate to this music within the Jazz framework, and the fact that both pianists are primarily known as Jazz artists, makes it is even more difficult to pinpoint exactly what this music is all about. The melodic themes are repeated and swapped between the pianists back and forth, there are lots of chords and notes in the air, swirling like snowflakes in the wind, but once the flakes land on the ground nothing remains in the air…
Somehow this music does not touch me at all, sounding like a New Age effort of producing soothing background music rather than anything that one can hold to. Of course Jaskulke and Wylezol are both superb piano players, as evident from their numerous other recordings, but this effort simply does not take off as far as I am concerned.
Of course I suppose many other listeners might enjoy this music immensely, therefore I urge fans of Jaskulke and Wylezol to listen to it by themselves and making their own minds.
