When noise or other unpleasant acoustic appearances are being overlaid with “white sounds” such as ocean waves, rain, wind etc. the human ear seems to perceive them as softer and less disturbing. This healing principle from psychoacoustics can be wonderfully applied to music – as bassist Martin Wind impressively proves.
The Flensburg native is one of the German figureheads on the New York jazz scene. For the recording of his new album “White Noise”, he surrounded himself with two European “Jazz icons of the highest order”:
Philip Catherine, for many critics – besides John McLaughlin – the most respected guitarist in Europe.
And the Dutchman Ack van Rooyen, whose warm and soft tone on trumpet and flugelhorn is his unmistakable trademark. “In a world where silence is becoming more and more of a luxury, I wanted to set a little acoustic opposite pole. Kind of a sound oasis, in which the audience can lean back and enjoy the music undisturbed to its fullest effect” explained Wind the concept of the album - the quietest in his discography so far. But if you’re worried that three jazz virtuosos ended up among esotericists, you’re mistaken.
The trio merely adheres to a proven principle: that less is often more. Besides a long musical partnership the three musicians are connected through their deep friendship.
