Born in Paris, raised in Vienna, resident in Ibiza, saxophonist and composer Muriel Grossmann is the embodiement of a boundary-free approach to contemporary European jazz. Steeped in Coltrane, Dolphy and Sanders she has played with European avant-gardists including Joachim and Rolf Kühn, Wolfgang Reisinger and Thomas Heidepriem, while working non-stop with a raft of groups across the continent. ‘Elevation’ is curated from her 2016 album Natural Time (‘Your Pace’, ‘Peace For All’) and from 2017’s Momentum (‘Elevation’, ‘Chant’ and ‘Rising’) and is the first time these tracks have been available on vinyl. Featuring her regular quartet of Radomir Milojkovic (guitar) Uros Stamenkovic (drums) and Gina Schwarz (bass), the music on Elevation is truly authentic, the product of a group of musicians that have totally immersed themselves in the lessons of the greats. If you enjoyed the sound of label mate Nat Birchall you will love this. Brilliant stuff.
