LIVES / FACTS / FESTIVALS

This unprecedented pool of authors makes much of this information available in English for the first time. The chapter from the book of Rain Sultanov "The Jazz History of Azerbaijan” was also included in this Maritinelli’s encyclopedia (red). Further chapters cover related subjects: the history of African-American entertainers before jazz, the cross-national traditions of Gypsy and Jewish music, festivals, films, and avant-garde music. The book also draws on the newly available resources created by the extensive work being done nationally by various jazz archives. Chapters contain in-depth bibliographies, rare photographs and illustrations, and suggested listening lists.

Rain Sultanov: Putting Baku On The Jazz Map

By IAN PATTERSON FOR www.allaboutjazz.com

"The fact is because Azerbaijan was part of the Soviet Union for many years it wasn’t easy for us, after the 1990s, to declare ourselves as a country, to talk about our jazz history. This is the goal. —Rain Sultanov, saxophonist/Artistic Director, Baku Jazz Festival."

CD REVIEW

The church organ has been a bit player in jazz history, impacting about as much as an Alfred Hitchcock cameo—blink and you'd miss it. Jan Garbarek and Kjell Johnsen's meditative duo album Aftenland(ECM, 2000) and a trio of gothic jazz recordings by Asaf Sirkis and the Inner Noise spring to mind, but after that you'd really have to dig. Cycle sees Azerbaijan's leading jazz musicians, soprano saxophonist Rain Sultanov embrace the solemnity of church organ in intimate dialogues that, without a doubt, owe a debt to Garbarek and Johnsen's aforementioned collaboration.
