Recorded by Clément Garel, mixed and edited by Julien
Basséres and Urrutia himself at
Meudon studios during November 2017. “The
Paname papers” is based both on performance capacity and improvisation skills
developed by this three musicians along with the Basque pianist compositions. A
record that suggests sort a filming work
full of musicological frames and scenes with it´s script based on multiple
influences and resources. “Dona Kubik” half way between Indiana /Donna-Lee re-harmonization and Fred
Hersch’s “Phantom of the Bopera”. Valse
pour Nono” an essentially tonal theme with a simple, nearly poppy melody
in contrast with “Entartetes” an eight bar Blues and “ Fantasie Onirique” a
minimalistic type of tune that suggests the world of dreams with a childish or
naïf intention. “Entropical Cha” starting from tropical Rhythm moving towards
Jazz improvisation. “Fourth
Element” a tune inspired by dodecaphonic music using the Pythagorean
cycle. “Pasos Enanos” a tune made from Coltraine´s ”Giant Steps” minor chord
changes just to end up with the record self titled “The Paname Papers” and “La Caravana
Amarilla” with the use of a buleria clave from flamenco music, combined with phrygian
melodies & harmonies.
Jon Urrutia trio “The Paname Papers reveals both
easily recognized talent and creativity. Music from the world in terms of Jazz.
Music without labels than the strictly necessary.
A record that without doubt will not leave one of today´s most important
musician in the international Jazz scene indifferent.
