Particularly fits the very broad palette of sounds of the percussionist. On this album Boi Akih covers a wider field than ever, simple, melodic folk to rough improvised exchanges.” Haarlems Dagblad Nov 16 by Peter Bruyn “ Liquid Songs, music that is fluid and constantly moving. That applies to more than just the notes that are played. It also reflects how society, our culture and identity continue to renew themselves and to adapt to circumstances. Boi Akih's music is as topical as music can be'. by Peter Bruyn Haarlems Dagblad Nov 16 Niels Brouwer Ryoko Imai percussionist #TobiasKlein #RonRuiten Jazztival Alkmaar Jane de la Fosse Trytone Amsterdam Monica Akihary

    Fourtune is British pianist-composer Julie Sassoon's first quartet recording.
    Sassoon's musical approach draws in equal measure on her classical training and on a love of jazz and improvised music. This marriage goes far beyond the translation of a pianistic technique from one musical area to another but becomes something far deeper and more powerfully emotionally moving in her hands.

    The CD features life-and musical partner Lothar Ohlmeier on reeds, along with a remarkably strong rhythm pairing in bassist Meinrad Kneer and drummer Rudi Fischerlehner. From the outset, the sense is of a group where the primary virtues are mutual respect, empathy and a confidence in each other's abilities. Its gently punning title is no accident.
