Transitions, the latest album by the Julian Costello Quartet, will be released in September 2017 on 33 Jazz Records. It was recorded at Artesuono Studio in Udine, Italy and mixed and mastered by ECM engineer Stefano Amerio.
This quirky quartet loves to jam, is full of humour and has been playing concerts as a segue, a continuous unbroken set. By the end of the first set, so much tension has built up that the release of pent-up applause by the audience is fantastic. We love jamming!
The critic Ian Mann wrote:
"The combination of soprano saxophone and guitar was highly effective and Costello adopted a warm, clarinet like tone on his soprano ... on an episodic piece that also featured some exquisite interplay between Pysz and Costello."
