Marko Churnchetz “Ruthenia” Quartet$12
Marko Churnchetz is one of Slovenia’s most heralded contemporary musicians and renowned exports, currently spending time living between his home country and New York City. He has performed or recorded with Bob Mintzer, Seamus Blake, Eric Alexander, Michael Phillip Mossman, Ron McClure, Marcus Gilmore, just to mention a few. His last CD “Devotion”(Whirlwind Recordings, 2014) was selected among 20 best jazz recordings of 2014 by All About Jazz!
Churnchetz’s New Quartet, featuring also Mike Moreno, Chris Jennings and Rudy Royston is a clear example of how many contemporary musicians are no longer concerned with genre boundaries.
Their new CD “Ruthenia” is coming out on Fresh Sound , New Talent in April 2017. Ruthenia is a suite, written as Retrospective of the Russian composers of 20. century. This CD is a result of Churnchetz’s inspiration from these great genius composers.
“An international debut recording that sees an impressively fiery new pianist off to a flying start.”
4 Stars, Jazzwise Magazine
“A possessor of dazzling technique, in terms of speed, accuracy and the ability to turn a phrase into a big run.”
“The disc delivers everything we have come to expect of modern contemporary jazz: brilliant virtuosity; powerful and complex rhythmic drive, all informed by intelligent eclecticism.”
