Grossmann / Milojkovic / Landfermann / Lillinger
Energetic and interactive playing featuring Muriel Grossmann on alto, soprano saxophone and flute, Radomir Milojkovic on guitar, Robert Landfermann on bass and Christian Lillinger on drums.
We all, I guess, can realize up until now, that the guitar is still the bearer of change; something new still can be added. Milojkovic’s playing is deeply rooted in tradition, not only Jazz but also Blues and so-called World Music. Christian Lillinger is one of the most adventurous and exciting drummers of his generation, a musician’s musician, providing a wide range of concepts, ideas and moods that ultimately is giving a new voice for the drums. Robert Landfermann is a supremely gifted performer with pristine technique and far reaching imagination, both as accompanist and as soloist. There is a trust between these people: to deliver, whatever it takes.

Fragile only in appearance, Grossmann’s jazz voice is more powerful than most, and if we add the excellent quartet she formed with her inseparable Radomir Milojkovic the result could only be of the highest quality. Muriel Grossmann is able to offer intensity and strength, to bring to evidence that whoever dominates the thunder is also able to caress … Eivissa Jazz Festival, Pep Tur, Ultima Hora, Aug 2/201
