This album performance of “(K)now Straition” by Katy Jungmann is a mix of melodic ideas and tunes she put together in Lockdown. With a treat from Roberto Manzin on bass clarinet, expect warm harmonic horn tones and some free playing, Latin beats and textural bass.
As someone said, it’s not like any other jazz. The whole thing has a Brazil/New York feel: cool, unpretentious and smokey!
Katy says: “Influenced by all the music I’ve listened to, this album was an indulgence. It is just the beginning of the story.”
This album by Katy Jungmann showcases Katy’s simple, expressive approach to Jazz., Katy comes from a family of musicians and has studied many instruments since a child. This album captures her saxophone musicianship, effortlessly made and grasping the beauty of the instrument. The tracks were made in Lockdown and released at a time when perhaps we had time to think. It’s not a classic Jazz album, more a funky, groovy chain of melodies that move on you and express joy, melancholy
and other emotions.
Katy says ‘I didn’t start out writing especially melancholic or joyful music but there was nowhere to go, (literally) no band in the room, just me. I started out writing from my many past, false starts. Then I contacted dancers to see if they could film themselves to the music as part of my Dance4Music collaborative project. Of course the composition took over. Who knew where it would end up. The music came to life.’
