About:
Volker Schlott’s composition "Favosan" drifts along in a dreamy ¾, with voice and c-melody sax sharing the wordless melody as bass clarinet provides counterpoint – voice as instrument as the horns vocalize.
Belgian singer Bart Peeters’ "Kniktieklaas" is handled with a strong backbeat and folksy feel, and although Sander De Winne is always himself, there’s a hint of Al Jarreau in his working of the piece. Melody foremost as the three intertwine.
Guitar great Pat Metheny’s "James" has bass clarinet grounding the refrain. Schlott solos on soprano as voice and horns blend in and out of the melody.
The NDR (North German Broadcasting) called "Dat du min Leevsten" büst a “Plattdeutsch classic”. First sung in the mid 1700’s, this song of two lovers has also been popular in various forms throughout the English speaking world under the general title “Night visiting song”. Here FAVO plays off the mischievous intimations of the amorous lyrics.
Considered a classic, "Oleo de mujer con sombrero" was written by musician Silvio Rodriguez, widely considered Cuba’s greatest living folk musician. Often called Cuba’s John Lennon, his idealistic songs deal with romanticism, eroticism, and revolutionary politics. FAVO does the piece justice, adhering to a passionate minimalistic elegance.
American pianist Richie Beirach’s "Leaving" has a minor Latinesque hue with Winne’s Beatbox and a background keyboard filling out the piece, while Schlott’s "Alpinsong 2" has c-melody sax, bass clarinet and voice echoing the sound and feel of the mountains.
Composed by the famed Argentinian composer Ariel Ramirez, "Alfonsina y el Mar" ranks as one of the classics of Argentinian folk music. The piece pays homage to poet Alfonsina Storni who committed suicide in 1938 when she drowned herself in the ocean. The trio’s version captures the song’s tragedy and sorrow.
The Irving Berlin standard "How Deep is the Ocean" sends the listener back in time with FAVO’s version of the Jazz Age. Schlott once again plays c-melody ala Frankie Trumbauer.
The trio’s "Ja Ja Ja Naja" is a song implementing nonsense syllables and, to this listener’s ears, has something of a Native American folk feeling.
The German folk song "Die Gedanken sind frei" has everything to do with freedom of expression – which is what FAVO is all about.
With its funky Afro beat, the infectious "Sunrise in Congo" positively glows, while Breitkreuz and De Winne’s "Night Move" gracefully traverses a darkened landscape.
On the Irish folksong "Aisling Gheal", (vision bright), the voice floats over the background drone as De Winne incants the ethereal Gaelic lyrics – a proper end to this imaginative multilayered CD. As Volker Schlott stated, “You don’t need to say anything more. It’s simply music.”


Reviews

Concert Review: Multiphonics Festival, Köln, Okt. 2017)

"Der Name des deutsch-belgischen Trios Favo setzt sich aus den Anfangsbuchstaben der Vornamen der beiden Musiker zusammen, die die Band einst ins Leben gerufen haben, nämlich der Bassklarinettist Falk Breitkreuz und der Sopransaxofonist Volker Schlott. Mittlerweile ist das belgische Stimmwunder Sander De Winne am Mikrofon hinzugekommen, und zusammen machen die drei eine hinreißende Musik, die alten Volksliedern wie „Dat du min leevsten büst“ neue Perspektiven abgewinnt, aber auch ansonsten melodische Improvisationen aller Art schillern lässt. Ihr hervorragendes neues Album erscheint bei NRW Records." (Ulrich Proske)
