hatOLOGY 621 : Max Nagl Ensemble · Quartier Du Faisan
by Max Nagl, Clemens Salesny, Franz Hautzinger, Lorenz Raab, Martin Ptak, Clemens Wenger, Josef Novotny, Achim Tang, Lukas Knöfler and Luis Ribeiro (2 x saxophones, 2 x trumpets, trombone, piano & electronics, double bass, drums & percussion)

Quartier du Faisan isn't merely a compilation of stylistic curiosities but a clear stance on modern orchestra music, an eccentric version of an alpine big band. Perhaps this isn't jazz at all — but without the slightest doubt it is a hymn to jazz. Max Nagl says his music comes about intuitively, he listens, and he picks and chooses to structure it into something that has been unheard of so far. To him, all that matters are colours, iridescent exceptions, surprisingsounds. Thus, jazz is a pool of ideas, a stimulus, a source, no more and no less. – Tilman Urbach
