NEW CD ALBUM

DUSKO GOYKOVICH-FIVE HORNS AND RHYTHM

Dusko Goykovich is among the world’s living legends in modern jazz. The list of musicians he has worked with reads like a "who is who" of jazz history: Benny Bailey, Chet Baker, Kenny Barron, Gary Burton, Kenny Clarke, Miles Davis, Maynard Ferguson, Tommy Flanagan, Stan Getz, Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon, Johnny Griffin, Slide Hampton, Woody Herman, Thad Jones, Lee Konitz, Albert Mangelsdorff, Gerry Mulligan, Oscar Pettiford, Sonny Rollins, Clark Terry, Lucky Thompson, Mal Waldron, Phil Woods... and many more. A citizen of Munich, Germany, Dusko Goykovich still holds a busy tour schedule including small band and big band performances and guest appearances in many European countries as well as Japan and Korea.

Since his days with Woody Herman’s big band Goykovich has also been known as a first-rate composer and arranger for jazz ensembles. He wrote hundreds of fine big band arrangements and recorded many of them himself, e.g. on his albums “Balkan Connection” (1995) and “A Handful O’ Soul” (2004). For the new album “Five Horns & Rhythm”, however, Goykovich assembled a somewhat smaller band, an international octet of masterful individualists. For them he arranged a bunch of his own tunes as well as a selection of so-called “standards”, among them Sam Jones’ “Unit Seven” and Jay McShann’s “Back At The Chicken Shack”. Partly familiar from his earlier albums (“Soul Connection”, “Bebop City”, “Samba Do Mar”, “Samba Tzigane”), Goykovich’s own tunes range stylistically from blues and bop to ballad and samba.

It is fun to hear some of Dusko’s best tunes played by this well-chosen band of musicians from eight countries, namely Australia, Bosnia, France, Germany, Italy, Macedonia, Serbia, and the USA. A summit meeting of sorts, this studio recording combines great solos, thrilling tunes, earthy grooves and nice arrangements set up for an unusual instrumentation. Dusko’s new album is a must for all friends of timeless high-quality swinging jazz.
