This extraordinary new album was released on June 7th, 2024. Soprano saxophone with church organ and cello. That alone was enough to arouse my interest. And it did not disappoint. Rain Sultanov has musically implemented a theme that is unfortunately omnipresent today in a very individual and personal way: anger.
On his new album, the musician now faces his own anger, his view of it and his way of dealing with the anger that confronts us all every day. What would you expect? An aggressive, loud and angry work? That's exactly what I have. But it's something completely different... It is a work of sometimes unearthly beauty. Simple, melancholic, tender and often downright fragile songs. The recording technique (recorded in a church, including the reverb) and the very rare trio line-up make the work something almost unique.
