About the Album

Organic is a very familiar term in jazz, denoting that the band breathes as one, which is one of the best (and unfortunately not frequent) descriptions of the values of this music. It perfectly characterizes this release, the third of the Majamisty Trio, the first recorded exclusively as a trio, with pianist Maja Alvanović (who is also the composer of most of the songs), the double bass player Ervin Malina and the new member of the crew, drummer Lav Kovač. "...For the jazz-poodle Notey ‒ the one bewildered by Malina’s shenanigans on the cover of this collection ‒ we now have a proper minuet: I can almost imagine her dancing with her owner in a lively waltz (with 6/8 and then 3/4 time signatures), wagging her tail in contentment at each of the band’s quirky breaks. In the middle, the whole ensemble is in full force, speeding up and soaring, still finishing the “Minuet for a Dog” just the way they started. Another pirouette with Notey, please!" (from the review of jazz journalist Vojislav Pantić)

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
