Mazur, Marilyn: Celestial Circle

Marilyn Mazur was born in New York and raised in Denmark. She has contributed to improvisation on both sides of the Atlantic. She has worked with Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter and Gil Evans as well as 14 years on the road with the Jan Garbarek Group. This is her group's first recording.

This album is full of Mazur penned works and instrumentals with collectively improvised trios and duos, including singer Josefine Cronhom and Mazur's friends John Taylor and Anders Jormin.

The best song on the album and a real reason to get this disc was "Winterspell". It captures so perfectly the feeling and calm of winter. The rest of the album is fantastic and full of strong visual impressions of places we'd all love to go or may have experience in our lifetime. Mazur takes you there with inspired playing and her adventurous spirit. "Gentle Quest", "Your Eyes", "Secret Crystals" and it's beautiful piano and chimes, "Temple Chorus", and it's incredible vocal rhythms balanced with piano and percussion, "Among the Trees", "Oceanique" and "Transcending" are all highlights of the album.

There is a wealth of good music and rhythm here to enjoy for every season.
