Tanger Trio & Ensemble Mondaine – “Tanger Trio & Ensemble Mondaine” – [Series Aphonos]
The Trio is piano, percussion, and bass. Sirone Jones (who played with a who’s who of American jazz artists) is on bass on tracks 1 and 13; after his sudden death Andreas Henze took his place. The Ensemble is woodwinds, strings and voice.
They combine for a sound that goes down easy and is frequently cinematic. The piano mostly dominates and sometimes sounds tinny for effect. This music is a meeting of new age and jazz.
