kolossusA performance at NYC Winter Jazzfest by faculty artist Michael Formanek’s Ensemble Kolossus of material from the forthcoming CD release, “The Distance,” on Saturday, January 16 was reviewed in DownBeat by Bill Milkowski on Wednesday, January 20. “The massive horn section swung and swirled with an epic sweep on richly textured pieces from Formanek’s vibrant “Exoskeleton” suite… Formanek’s huge, resonant tone anchored the proceedings while individual soloists excelled throughout the suite.” Read the full review, titled “Formanek, Potter, Bleckmann Triumph at Winter Jazzfest,” here. ECM Records recently released this electronic press kit in anticipation of the upcoming release on Friday, February 12.
