The present day jazz scene in the countries born when Tito’s Yugoslavia collapsed is very badly known by the rest of the world. Only recently things changed a bit, and one of the most alluded names of that part of Europe is tenor saxophonist Igor Lumpert. Searching for international recognition, for his Innertextures Trio he uses to invite American musicians. After touring and recording with, for instance, Matt Brewer and Tommy Crane, Lumpert’s rhythm section is now formed by two new-yorkers used to work together, bassist Christopher Tordini and drummer extraordinaire Nasheet Waits. More than an emergent name, Tordini collaborated with the likes of Greg Osby, Steve Lehman and Jim Black, and Waits is one of the most intriguing and brilliant drummers of our time. With partners like these and his very special talent, Lumpert is in the way to be widely known. The reasons why are in this CD – don’t be the last to know it.
