O’s Notes: Drummer/percussionist Sivan Ivanovic and pianist/guitarist Vladimir Nikolov lead a Modern European large jazz ensemble that marries traditional and contemporary jazz into rich, warm music for Frame and Curiosity. There are eleven members plus featured guest Magic Malik Lezzadri (fl, vocals). All of the music was composed by the leaders and they strike an enticing balance that is vibrant, embraceable and relaxing on ballads like “Across The Threshold”. The true beauty is in the controlled power on “L’Etranger”, “Carefree” and “Sade Sati”.
