The first edition of Jazzdor Budapest launches with the premiere of an irresistibly intimate and poetic album. The Twigs trio was founded by French jazz icon Vincent Courtois, who has chosen two rising stars to join him. Dutch singer Sanne Rambags, who leads several bands on her own, is one of the great hopes of the international jazz world, while Swiss drummer and media artist Julian Sartorius has been one of Europe's most sought-after performers for years. Their album, recorded last summer at the BMC, is song-centred chamber jazz with improvisations, in an undefinable style that echoes everything from traditional jazz to contemporary classical music and shamanistic folk. Whether she whispers or sings in guttural voice, Rambags always captivates with her immediacy, while Courtois and Sartorius are ready to punctuate or contradict the singer's words.
