Swing und Blues sind die Eckpfeiler in der Musik von OSCAR KLEIN.
Dazwischen bewegt sich der gebürtige Grazer stilistisch vom Ragtime bis
zum modernen Mainstream. Als Multiinstrumentalist, der vier
verschiedene Instrumente beherrscht, kann er dabei auf eine breite
Palette von Klangfarben zurückgreifen.
..daß die vorliegende CD nicht zur Ein-Mann-Show wird, dafür sorgt

The music on this CD has been produced by artists from different
backgrounds - Oscar Klein, a Jew who was interned in fascist Italy
during World War II; ROMANO MUSSOLINI, the youngest son of the former fascist dictator of Italy; JAN JANKEJE, a Slovak, and GREGOR BECK,
a German. Klein performs technically well and expressively on all of
his trumpet solos, he blows a gutsy clarinet on his "Blues for Peter
Schilperoort," he is best on guitar on "Don't Get Around Much Anymore,"
and his harmonica is truly jazzy on his "The New Harmonica Shuffle."
Mussolini has brought together elements of the blues, stride and swing
into a unique style of his own. Mussolini's stylistic modernity is
displayed on his solo rendition of "To My Mother," which he composed,
and Jankeje takes a long, interesting bass solo on his "Bratislava
Fantasy". The best rendition is " The Sheik of Araby," with splendid
solos from Klein, on trumpet, Mussolini and Beck, a swing drummer who
also displays his outstanding technique on" Bye, Bye, Blackbird." These
excellent musicians, coming from diverse backgrounds, have given us
some very enjoyable jazz on this CD.
