About the album
ΘιΘ   Multi–instrumentalist Marilyn Mazur began as a child prodigy in the late 1960s, in the early ‘70s she was already leading her own group. Extremely progressive for the times, Zirenes featured Mazur as composer, pianist, vocalist and dancer. Other groups followed: Six Winds, MM4 and Primi Band, all with Mazur as the creative epicenter. ΘιΘ   Mazur was extremely active on the international music scene as a member of Miles Davis’ various bands from 1985, and later toured with an impressive list of artists including Wayne Shorter, Gil Evans and Jan Gabarek. Her own group for  many  years,  Future  Song,  was  also  an  international attraction.
ΘιΘ   Marilyn Mazur has received many honors: The Ben Webster Award (1983), The JazzPar Prize (2001), Wilhelm Hansen Composers  Prize  (2004),  Django  D’Or  —  Legend  of  Jazz (2006), Telenor International Culture Prize (2007), JTI Jazz Award (2010), and every year she is listed in various polls of the world’s best percussionists. ΘιΘ   It is always exciting to start up a new release with Marilyn Mazur. She follows her own chosen path and always challenges the borders of her own musical territory. ΘιΘ   Flamingo Sky shows Mazur in the most minimalistic of her groups with two Swedish musicians who have been part of her musical world for years: guitarist Krister Jonsson and vocalist Josefine Cronholm. If anyone should happen to picture anemic, blonde–haired, Swedish jazz, they need to readjust their expectations!
ΘιΘ   On Flamingo Sky the trio has created powerful, constantly developing music that touches on a multitude of sounds. From tender ballads to dreamy musical canvases, from funky pieces to frenetic acid music, it is always played with ease. Your shoulders will stay in place, and often you will be tempted to just lean back, close your eyes and let the music caress your soul and body. Each track has its own atmosphere and pulse, and Mazur’s special melodic touch. Each tune starts with a melodic line or a few notes. ΘιΘ   Soon Josefine Cronholm’s beautiful, pristine alto and Jonsson’s insistent, dynamic guitar are added. And although you may not be able to hum along the first time round, they are interpreted so wonderfully and with such joy, that by the second listening each tune already sounds completely natural and beautiful as if you’ve known it all your life.


ΘιΘ   Marilyn Mazur builds up the grooviest, spellbinding percussion patterns. Each percussion instrument has been chosen, prepared and tuned to fit Mazur’s universe of sound. Every beat, roll and tiny bell comes at exactly the right time. And her piano playing also contributes to the beauty of this album. On Flamingo Sky, three musicians — augmented on two tracks by bassist Klavs Hovman — have created a unique musical statement that grows with each new listening and gradually becomes part of your DNA. :: http://www.challengerecords.com/

ΘιΘ   Josefine Cronholm (born 1971) is a celebrated Swedish jazz vocalist and singer/songwriter, who has won numerous awards. Her debut album Wild Garden was released in 2002. She also provided a cover of The Carpenters' Close to you for the film MirrorMask. She sang on the Django Bates Album Quiet Nights in 1998.
ΘιΘ   Der var en gang, for ikke så længe siden, hvor det at fylde 60 år betød efterløn og seniorordninger. Tænk bare på Ben Webster. Han var 60 år, da han boede i Danmark — han spillede gudskelov ikke som en mand på retræte — men han lignede en nedslidt og færdig mand, når musikken ikke spillede. Til januar fylder Marilyn Mazur 60 år. Her tænker ingen på efterløn, seniorordninger endsige nedslid eller at noget er ovre. Hun er aktuel på to albums, der begge har vokalen som omdrejningspunkt. Den første er med Mazurs egen trio. Hun er sammen med sangerinden Josefine Cronholm og guitaristen Krister Jonsson. Begge har hun ofte samarbejdet med tidligere. Pladen indeholder både det vi kender Mazur, så godt for. Hendes dansende og samtidigt kraftfyldte percussionspil, der rytmisk glider helt naturligt og utæmmet ud i verden. ΘιΘ   Som på den reggaeinfluerede The Butterflies. Men der er også andre sider af Mazur, som vi møder på pladen. Hun spiller piano på flere numre. Der er både det perkussive freejazznummer Ø, som hun har lavet sammen med Peter Friis Nielsen og den smukke ballade Gone, hvor Cronholm synger. Der er numre som Like a lover der kan minde om Laurie Anderson’s formidable sangforedrag. :: http://jazznyt.blogspot.com/

REVIEW
ΘιΘ   Første gang vi oppdaga Marilyn Mazur (59) her hjemme, var da var med på konsert og plateinnspilling sammen med Miles Davis — "Aura". Også en herre å "debutere" med for å si det slik! Seinere spilte hun fast med i sjefens band, hun blei blant annet kalt opp på scena under Miles´ konsert i Molde i 86, og hun bidro i lengre perioder hos giganter som Gil Evans, Wayne Shorter og Jan Garbarek. Hun har også samarbeida i stor grad med norske musikanter som Jon Balke, Tore Brunborg, Audun Kleive, Nils Petter Molvær og Eivind Aarset. Årsaken til at alle disse, og mange flere, vil være i Mazurs musikalske nærhet er sjølsagt hennes ustoppelige kreativitet og ditto utstråling. I 2008 gjorde hun en framifrå innsats som Artist in Residence under Moldejazz. Her møter hun oss med to glitrende svenske musikanter: vokalisten Josefine Cronholm og gitaristen Krister Jonsson. Det blir det sjølsagt framifrå musikk av.
ΘιΘ   Marilyn Mazur — intet mindre enn et fyrverkeri.
ΘιΘ   "Flamingo Sky" består av 16 låter som i stor grad er skrevet av Mazur både når det gjelder tekst og musikk, men de to andre har også bidratt på det området. Mazur både synger og spiller piano, Cronholm bidrar på perkusjon, Jonsson krydrer det hele med live elektronikk og bassisten Klavs Hovman, som Mazur kjenner bedre enn de aller fleste, lager ekstra dybde på to spor.
ΘιΘ   Denne unike instrumenteringa sørger sjølsagt for at musikken her har et sound noen knapt har vært utsatt for tidligere. Det er åpent og luftig, sjøl om det ofte er kompakt også. Inspirasjonskildene er mange og på flere av spora mer enn anes enn sjamanistisk åre.
ΘιΘ   Dette er tre musikanter og mennesker med masse empati — både menneskelig og musikalsk. Her er er det bare å lene seg tilbake å la seg forføre — velkommen inn i en musikalsk verden som er sjelden, vakker og svært personlig. :: http://torhammero.blogg.no/
