Notes & Reviews:

Bass player and composer Georg Breinschmid from Vienna, Austria presents his newest release. All About Jazz enthuses: "Georg Breinschmid is a genius madman. Brein's World may be the most inventive release of the year." Originally a classical musician, he decided to dedicate himself fully to jazz and is now one of the leading Austrian jazz musicians on the international scene.

"Someday, I hope to meet Georg Breinschmid. On that day, I'll laugh loudly and give him a giant hug. He is one of the craziest, broadest-thinking musicians you'll ever hear. Take Brein's World, his latest double CD, as "exhibit A." Breinschmid is a gifted bassist with amazing technique and lock-down rhythmic sense. Born and raised in Vienna, he's a classically trained musician who's been drawn into jazz. He hasn't forgot his classical roots, though, and they shine through many of his tunes. But, seemingly, so does every other kind of music he has ever heard. Brein's World is a travelogue of classical, gypsy jazz, rock, European folk music, bebop, waltzes, beer-hall dance tunes, even hip-hop. But he pulls everything together under one roof (or into one "Brein") with a unique sense of audacity, tenderness, humor and camp. The two-CD set includes 28 songs loaded with violins, pianos, horns, accordions, vocals and the occasional kazoo. But every time you smile or even laugh out loud, the next moment you'll be thinking about the incredible musicianship on the record. A perfect example is "Brein's Knight." Breinschmid lays down a funky bass line to kick off the tune. Frantisek Janoska joins in on piano. But when violinist Roman Janoska plays the melody, it sounds like an Irish folk song ... with a funky backbeat. The only thing missing is an English translation of some of the songs Breinschmid sings. They sound great in German, but I guarantee they'd be hysterical if only I could speak the language! No matter, Breinschmid's music has universal appeal." -DownBeat

Down Beat (p.66) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[E]ach member has plenty of solo space and they expertly interject short statements into the often thick textures."
