Impulse: Clint Allen

This limited edition CD features Australian trumpeter Clint Allen, the infamous Dutch pianist/composer Martin Fondse, and the extraordinary Amsterdam-based Zapp 4 String Quartet performing new music by a host of renowned composers, including Robert Maggio’s Surfarara.

“Impulse” hints of contemporary jazz, minimalism and avant-garde experimentalism, where the improvisations are themselves organic and act seamlessly with the compositions. Recorded under the watch of renowned sound engineer, Chris Weeda and mastered by Darius Van Helfteren, the result is a CD of haunting beauty, unsettling at times with dark overtones, but with glistening strings and gorgeous piano lines.
