Basement Research New CD

New release / January 27, 2020

The new CD 'Impromptus and Other Short Works' has been released on WhyPlayJazz in 2019 and received worldwide about a dozen 5 star reviews.

' Highlights abound, showing once more the depth and sophistication of Ullmann’s writing and playing and the outstanding soloing of Swell and Argüelles in the lower depths. There is great fun and there are many exciting moments; considering the variety of the pieces and their considerable complexity, the results are both exhausting and exhilarating.' (New York City Jazz Record)

' Whatever you’d call Mingus, you could call Ullmann as well. To me his pieces for this group take their cue from Blues & Roots and Oh Yeah! — the bands with three or four low or low-ish horns, no trumpet or other high-pitched instrument on top, the spontaneity of their interpretation and the occasional burst of collective polyphony ensured by Mingus’s method of teaching them the pieces by ear. I doubt that’s how Ullmann does it, but whatever his method he achieves a similar level of warmth, flexibility and sheer humanity. [...] If you don’t know Ullmann’s music, this album is a very welcoming place to start.' (Richard Williams - former artisitc director of the Berlin Jazzfest):
