Album Description

Like the letter for which it is named, this conceptual project by bassist Uros Spasojevic and pianist Bojan Marjanovic finds a meeting point between two independent lines. The search for that confluence is only the beginning of our journey through the young Serbian duo’s exalting, honest music. Influenced by Norwegian pianist and composer Ketil Bjørnstad, and due also the fact that this project began as part of a multimedia concept, the music on V feels like the soundtrack to an unmade film, all the while embodying the tension of contrast and complement between its instruments. What at first may seem like opposing signatures by the end unite into something fresh and enchanting. Together, Uros and Bojan lay a path into the listener’s experiential horizon, erasing that liminal boundary where the past ends and future begins. Their dialogues are defined by the deconstructive treatments, roles, and expressive possibilities of their assemblage. Deferring to the melodic function of electric bass, piano parts explore varying textural models in the vein of contemporary classical music. In most pieces, the bass’s timbres and moods are combined with through-composed material, thus birthing an indivisible entity. The album was entirely composed by Uros Spasojevic, who is committed to the idea that the bass guitar can be a leading melodic and solo instrument capable of viable polyphony and improvisational logic. With sublime taste and sophistication, he strives for simplicity, sincerity, and originality. Bojan Marjanovic is a pianist of versatile capabilities and interests, spanning the gamut of classical to improvised music and contemporary jazz. Although mostly classically trained, he has translated his multivalent identity and curiosity into an exploration of music beyond stylistic bounds. This is their first album as a duo.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
