Mood Indigo

Featuring the music of Albert Mangelsdorff
Duration: 5:03

Albert Mangelsdorff was one of the most accredited and innovative trombonists of modern jazz. He pioneered the use of a distinctive technique for playing multiphonics, producing more than one note simultaneously, even playing chords on the trombone by singing his breath through the horn. This version of "Mood Indigo" is from Albert's 1974 album, The Wide Point, with Palle Danielsson on bass and Elvin Jones on drums, a remarkable trio recording that sounds as fresh today as when it was first released. Albert's playing on this piece represents a milestone in trombone technique, as he plays and sings in three-part harmony.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
