Julie Sassoon Quartet 'Fourtune' (GB/D/A)

Julie Sassoon: piano
Lothar Ohlmeier: soprano saxophone, bassclarinet
Meinrad Kneer: bass
Rudi Fischerlehner: drums

"...'Fourtune' is British pianist-composer Julie Sassoon's first quartet recording. Sassoon's musical approach draws in equal measure on her classical training and on a love of jazz and improvised music. This marriage goes far beyond the translation of a pianistic technique from one musical area to another but becomes something far deeper and more powerfully emotionally moving in her hands..."
