Hi-Res Booklet
It's written on the cover: funk is my religion! The trombonist came in from the cold is wearing his heart on his sleeve with this 11th Funk Unit album. The leader of this gleaming groove machine which formed in 1994, Landgren has rekindled a full-strength funk which mixes the Headhunters-era Herbie Hancock sound with the influence of Fred Wesley's and Maceo Parker's J.B.s. As is often the case with him, the whole work is powered from start to finish by brass: trombone (his own) and sax (played by Jonas Wall). And as this is a work of funk, the bass/drums duo (Magnum Coltrane Price and Robert Ikiz) are also in pole position. But above all, Funk Unit has made the most progress in terms of vocals – and on this score, the group is able to hold their own against any Anglo-Saxon funksters. This album is the perfect antidote for lockdown, a balm for both body and mind. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet
The beasts are loose! At the end of 2019, just a few months before the curtain fell over the world, pianist Michael Wollny (who has gone electric for this album), saxophonist Émile Parisien, bassist Tim Lefebvre and drummer Christian Lillinger all entered the A-Trane club in Berlin with no set-list and no roadmap. Over the course of eight sets, these four fascinating, crazy, contemporary jazz scientists conversed, provoked, fought, embraced, and entwined. What they created here was electro, krautrock, free, progressive – it was more than simply jazz. The sound defies classification, and maybe it’s better that way. With the help of producer Jason Kingsland, who mainly deals in rock productions (Kaiser Chiefs, Band of Horses, Belle and Sebastian), they turned almost eight hours of live recording into 45 minutes of studio material. The result is a fascinating experience. Naturally, XXXX is rather less accessible than Sidney Bechet's Petite fleur. But the listener can't help but be carried away by the generosity of these wild exchanges and the energy of the four musicians who never fall into the trap of a complacent, inward-looking jam. Sensitive souls steer clear! Curious souls, get stuck in! © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
