DVD: Martin Wind

Wind Baltica.jpgMartin Wind New York Quartet, Live At Jazz Baltica (Jazz Baltica). Bassist Wind returned to his native land in 2008 for Germany’s Jazz Baltica Festival in Schleswig-Holstein. With the addition of the astonishing multi-instrumentalist Scott Robinson, the Bill Mays Trio with Wind and drummer Matt Wilson became the Wind quartet. The vigor, ingenuity and camaraderie among the musicians reach a peak in “Remember October 13th,” with Robinson’s bass clarinet alternating between the joy of unbridled freedom and the profundity of the blues. Bill Evans’ “Turn Out the Stars” is another highlight. Camera work, sound and direction are beautifully realized.
