Auteur Jazz


Ricky Tick

Released: 1st March 2010 | 9 track crossover jazz album
Auteur Jazz is a new project led by composer and multi-instrumentalist Antti Hynninen. The debut album Aphorisms combines cinematic sound scape with a refreshingly fresh take on dance?or jazz aesthetics. Antti Hynninen is a composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist based in Helsinki. In the past couple of years, he has been applying his vision to more than 30 albums, mostly in the ?ld of contemporary soul and funk. Now is the perfect time to let the man introduce us his new project, Auteur Jazz. Auteur Jazz debuted with the EP Two Jaguars in Warsaw (RT025) which released by Ricky-Tick in 2008. Already on the single release, Auteur Jazz presented a sound that has remarkable depth while keeping your ?gers snapping at the same time. A cinema a?ionado, Hynninen slyly referred to Roman Polanski's classic ?m A Knife in the Water on the title of the EP. The EP's uptempo groovers 'Two Jaguars in Warsaw' and 'Gui do' quickly made it into the repertoires of top-notch jazz DJs' sets around the globe. This, of course, wasn't a hard prediction to make at the time of the release, for in addition to all the necessary dance?or temperament, Auteur Jazz possesses rare charisma and craftsmanship galore. This all leaves us in the delicious position of buckling up and getting ready to receive the ?st serving of the complete Auteur Jazz menu. 'Congo Square' is as a noteworthy starter, strolling away at ease with the aid of a lush arrangement that's strikingly visual. 'Kill You Alive', along with 'Tomorrow Knows' introduce the vocal talent of Sara Sayed, a rising ?ure in the Helsinki scene to keep your eye on. When listening to the material on the album, it is remarkable to note that Auteur Jazz completed the larval stage of its development only fairly recently. The nine tracks are each balanced in terms of composition and instrumentation in a way which might hint at years of polishing, rather than a fresh up-and-comer on the verge of releasing their debut LP. By the time you reach the meditative closing track 'Najgo', Auteur Jazz has completed the cinematic audio mosaic that is Aphorisms. The album reaches far and wide with its signature sound and has all the features of contemporary jazz with an extended shelf-life. For best results, listen with mental CinemaScope.
