New Jazzchor Freiburg album flows with sophistication
(Published: May 02, 2020)

Jazzchor Freiburg is an ensemble with a focus on capturing the essence of authentic jazz music while bringing some different influences to the genre by way of the group's unique personality.

Their most recent studio album, Infusion, is really all about combining great melodies with sophisticated arrangements, bringing a different twist to the music. The album features 12 studio tracks, including the beautiful opener, "Jòga," which also features Torun Eriksen. This song sets the mood for the entire record, and it represents the group's blend of lighheartedness and sophistication, making for a unique vibe. The hilariously titled "When God Created the Coffeebreak" is a highlight here, due to its intricate piano arrangement and changing moods. Another fantastic moment is "Like Sand in My Hands," which starts off with a melodic intro and a darker vibe, combining sparse percussion with haunting choral arrangements to spice up the mix. The song has an amazing crescendo of voices, creating a soothing and entrancing atmosphere as if these voices were attempting to reach the sky. The solo female vocals are incredibly clear and soothing, contrasting the massive and broad sound of the choral elements. "Maiden Voyage" is perhaps my personal favorte. The song has a deep, lush bass sound, which works in synergy with the vocal choir, offering a soothing and full-ranging arrangement. The collaboration with Joo Kraus also adds something special to the mix.

The production of this LP is another creative aspect worth mentioning. The sound is so pristine and incredibly lifelike, it almost makes you feel as if you were standing right there with the band, a silent fly on the wall in the recording studio. The drums are present and detailed, but never overpowering, while the vocals are clear and smooth, without being overly processed. There's just the right amount of reverb adding more ambiance and a pleasant lingering tail to the vocal harmonies. However, the sound is far from being overly "wet," even though the vocals create a sense of depth. Other instruments, such as the piano and brass/woodwinds on the album are clear and intelligible, cutting through the mix while maintaining a lot of clarity.
