SUBJECT: OT AAJ Review: Jan Garbarek Dansere Box (ECM) Back to Subjects

For those interested, a review of Jan Garbarek’s Dansere, ECM’s latest Old and New Masters Edition series box set, today at Collecting the three recordings the Norwegian saxophonist made with pianist Bobo Stenson - 1971’s Sart and, with the Jan Garbarek - Bobo Stenson Quartet, 1974’s Witchi-Tai-To and 1976’s Dansere, the box set finds both Garbarek and the label in a state of transition, where both were establishing their individual voices. Across the three discs, Garbarek is heard shedding his early influences (Ayler and Coltrane), for the tarter tone that’s been a signature ever since. Sart is the most overtly free of the three, while Witchi moves towards greater lyricism in set of largely cover material, and Dansere features Garbarek’s writing, almost exclusively. A great time to reassess Garbarek’s rapid rise in the 1970s, with terrific liner notes by Michael Tucker, author of the definitive Garbarek bio, Deep Song. Review here:
