GERMANY: Uwe Oberg-Work (Hatology 2016)

Recorded live at Jazzclub im Domicil Saarbrücken performing compositions by Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk and his own compositions. There's a curious dichotomy in the musical perspective of Uwe Oberg that informs and intensifies everthing he touches...over references and veiled, possibly subconscious, allusions to a wide range of sources that imply several layers of stylistic influence and irony. And yet the music he creates has its own distinct character, and ultimately rejects confining genres. – Art Lange
Track Listing: Hill; Fables of Faubus/W.R.U.; Kelvin/Crescent; Pannonica; Olo Olo/Muddy Mouse; Work.
