TIGRAN HAMASYAN AND AMBROSE AKINMUSIRE
Vienna 2019 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Konzerthaus, Mozart-Saal, Vienna, Austria; November 26, 2019. Very good satellite broadcast.

Tigran Hamasyan is an Armenian jazz pianist. He plays mostly original compositions, which are strongly influenced by the Armenian folk tradition, often using its scales and modalities. In addition to Tigran’s folk influence, he is influenced by American jazz traditions and, to some extent, as on his album Red Hail, by progressive rock. His solo album, A Fable, is most strongly influenced by Armenian folk music. Even on his most overt jazz compositions and renditions of well-known jazz pieces, his improvisations often contain embellishments based on scales from Middle Eastern/South Western Asian traditions.

In 2014, American jazz trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire won the North Sea Jazz Festival’s Paul Acket Award. He is also featured on the last track of Kendrick Lamar’s 2015 release To Pimp a Butterfly. His sixth studio album, On the Tender Spot of every Calloused Moment, was released in spring 2020. - wikipedia
