JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2009 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Delirium - Rochester International Jazz Festival 2009

Delirium at first seemed like a toy band. But that is only in comparison to Joe Lovano. This Finish quartet has been together for ten years and they sound it. Their arrangements are crisp and cleanly delivered with lots of unison horn. They are all great players but the tenor sax player was exceptional. They have their own European (more pageantry and less blues based) jazz sound and it’s a lot of fun. Their last tune was entitled, “Let’s Have Some Pie”.- photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
