The best Jazz on Bandcamp, Jann 2024
In one breath, Muriel Grossmann draws every bit of serenity her joyful sound has to give, while generating enough intensity to make it resonate across the breadth of the planet. With a groove, a growl, or a sigh, the saxophonist’s music radiates everything good about life. Sometimes, Grossmann dips into an old-school, ‘70s psychedelic rock; other times, she charts a course through modern spiritual jazz—though typically there’s some cross-pollination going on somewhere along the way. Guitarist Radomir Milojkovic, Hammond B3 organist Abel Boquera, and drummer Uros Stamenkovic contribute to this wonderful recording, and Grossman adds a wealth of percussion, adding to a dialogue that is never less than riveting. Grossman has developed something of a cult following; Devotion behaves less as evidence why and more as a guarantee to swell the ranks.
