Ny Saft-smak

Den amerikanske tangentvirtuosen Jamie Saft dukker opp i stadig nye versjoner og nesten alle er like spennende.  by Tor Hammerø, October 19, 2018

Jamie Saft er med sin allsidighet og sitt tydelige uttrykk, uansett hvor han møter opp, en av de viktige pianostemmene anno 2018.

Trns:  Jamie Saft, with his versatility and distinctive expression, no matter where he meets, is one of the important piano voices in 2018.

“Blue Dream” named jazz album of the month by Echoes Magazine.

Echoes also placed Blue Dream at the top its UK Jazz Chart, too. Kevin Le Gendre writes:

“It’s too early to tell whether Blue Dream is something of a career-defining moment for Saft, but it will be worth dialing back on this work in a couple of years such is the depth of feeling reached by a band that is right at the top of its game.”


Italian Music publication Kathodik gives “Blue Dream” 9/10 stars

“Al di sopra delle mode.”
