RAINER GUÉRICH for inMusik
The Russian jazz pianist Yelena Eckemoff has already impressed me in the past with some outstanding releases. In this category also falls her ambitious latest recording, in which jazz music intermingles with the plant world and especially with the wildflower. She is accompanied on the conceptual work, which lasts more than two hours, by a five-piece Finnish accompanying ensemble, which also includes unusual instruments such as a glass harp (filled drinking glasses, which are made to sound with the fingers) and a theremin (also wave instrument). Insert the CDs and enjoy!
