Album Remarks & Appraisals:

All About Jazz - Hrayr Attarian
Austrian bassist Georg Breinschmid's Fire is a collection of live and studio recordings, in a variety of genres, all served with a healthy dose of refreshing irreverence and exuberant humor.

This in no way means that Breinschmid and his band mates are only about fun and games. On the contrary, their high quality musicianship and immense talents are evident throughout. For example, on "Suite 7" Breinschmid plays the complex melody with extreme agility while simultaneously keeping time on his bluesy bass. He becomes an entire rhythm section on the Spanish/Bohemian tinged "Sedlacek's Mood" as he percussively plucks the bass. On the expansive and melancholic waltz, "Spring," his contemplative, far reaching improvisation showcases his serious side, as well as that of violinist Roman Janoska and pianist Frantisek Janoska, members of his Brein's Café trio.

Roman Janoska's Paganini-like virtuosity is well matched with Frantisek Janoska's raggedy pianism on gypsy jazz tunes like "Schnortzenberger," a polka taken at break-neck speed. The aforementioned "Suite 7" features Roman Janoska navigating the peaks and valleys of the piece with the facility of an acrobat while Frantisek Janoska's piano lines range from ragtime to stride. The sad, "Tsiganesque" violin floating over arco bass and flowing piano lines on "Nóta/Csárdás" is reminiscent of silent film soundtracks, especially as the tempo picks up. ... read more...
