2015.NOV.19. Opera Maghiara Cluj. Songs From Afar: Lucian Ban & The Elevation Quartettlemezbemutató koncert ● concert de lansare album ● CD Release Tour

2015 novemberében a neves New York-i Sunnyside Records lemezkiadónál Songs From Afar címmel megjelenik az ELEVATION kvartett második albuma. 

Az Elevation, amelyet Lucian Ban a jól ismert afro-amerikai szaxofonossal, Abraham Burton-nel együtt alapított 2006-ban New York City-ben, több száz koncertet adott az Atlanti-óceán mindkét partján, jelentős színpadokon, klubokban és fesztiválokon többek közt Londonban, Amszterdamban, Párizsban, Bécsben, Kölnben, Budapesten, Chicagóban, San Franciscóban, Los Angelesben. 

A négyesfogatot a világ egyik legerősebb ritmusszekciója egészíti ki: John Hébert nagybőgős (Lucian Ban zongorista mellett a nagysikerű Enesco Re-Imagined projekt társszerzője) és Eric McPherson afro-amerikai dobos-ütőhangszeres. A kvartett több Grammy-nevezést kapott, és egy listára való közreműködővel büszkélkedhet a modern jazz nagy nevei közül – mindez elegendő ajánlás ahhoz, hogy a közönség a műfaj legfontosabb kortárs zenészei közt tartsa számon a zenekar tagjait.

În noiembrie 2015 prestigioasa casa de discuri americană Sunnyside Records din New York va edita al 2-lea album al Quartetului ELEVATION – Songs From Afar. 

Fondat în 2006 la New York City de Lucian Ban și de celebrul saxofonist afro-american Abraham Burton, quartetul Elevation a susținut sute de concerte de ambele părți ale Atlanticului, concertând pe scene, cluburi și festivaluri de referință în Londra, Amsterdam, Paris, Vienna, Koln, Budapesta, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles etc. 

Quartetul este completat de una dintre cele mai mari secții ritmice din lume – contrabasistul John Hebert (co-autor împreună cu pianistul Lucian Ban al renumitului proiect Enesco Re-Imagined) și bateristul și percuționistul afro-american Eric McPherson. Multiple nominalizări la premiile GRAMMY și colaborări cu o listă a Who’s Who în jazzul modern recomandă muzicienii quartetului drept unii dintre cei mai importanți muzicieni contemporani ai genului.

Sunnyside Records celebrates the release of “Songs from Afar” by ELEVATION, the powerhouse quartet from Transylvanian expat pianist & composer Lucian Ban. This is the pianist’ 3rd release for Sunnyside Records along with 2013 Mystery with Elevation and the 2010 award winning Enesco Re-Imagined third stream extravaganza and all star octet.

The quartet’s first album “Mystery” – an incendiary live set recorded in NYC - was released in 2013 and was meet with critical acclaim. Mystery won several BEST ALBUM OF 2013 awards (Jeff Stockton @ NYC Jazz Record, Ken Micaleff @ Down Beat, Elzy Kolb @ Hot House) and spanned several tours on both sides of the Atlantic.

This time along with the core quartet of saxophonist Abraham Burton (Art Taylor, Kenny Baron, Jimmy Smith, Mingus Dynasty, Roy Haynes, etc) and one of today’s best working rhythm sections in jazz – bassist John Hebert and master drummer Eric McPherson (Fred Hersch, Andrew Hill) along with pianist, the new album also features special guest and Grammy nominee violist Mat Maneri on several tracks and the Transylvanian traditional singer Gavril Tarmure singing with the band two ancient songs from Transylvania. Six other original compositions by the pianist and a solo piano tribute to South African master pianist Abdullah Ibrahim round up a stunning body of music for the new Elevation CD. An incendiary group that combines the European influences of the leader with the great tradition of American jazz.
