In unbekannte Welten träumen – Jazz Thing

 Text: Martin Laurentius In unbekannte Welten träumen Der Albumtitel „Weaving Through Motion“ (Traumton/Indigo) lässt sich wörtlich nehmen: Mit jedem der zwölf Stücke spinnt David Friedman auf dem Vibrafon einen imaginären Faden, um am Schluss einen farbenprächtigen Gobelin zu weben; mit Friedmans frei fließender Improvisationskunst als Webspindel.

Bird is the Worm – Review

An absorbing solo vibraphone session from jazz vet David Friedman, who went twenty years since his last solo outing. His newest, Weaving Through Motion, is likely to lead to some regret that he doesn’t do the solo thing a bit more often. Along with a bunch of Friedman originals, there are four covers, including Monk’s “‘Round Midnight” and Michael Legrand’s “The Windmills of Your Mind.” Just a real intimate, patient set of tunes that gives the listener the sense that they are there in the room as Friedman works through his ideas.
