NIKOLOV-IVANOVIĆ UNDECTET picture
Nikolov-Ivanovic Undectet is one of the most ambitious endeavors in the entire history of jazz from this region. The project combines the talents of Vladimir Nikolov and Srđan Ivanović with nine top musicians from several European countries. For their first album, Artistry in Broken Rhythm (Metropolis Jazz, 2018), the authors found initial inspiration in the works of Stan Kenton (Artistry in Rhythm) and Miles Davis (Birth of the Cool), building on these impulses modern orchestrated music of high-intensity and deep emotions, in the colors and rhythms of various continents, from New York to the Balkans.

The project was conceived in the mid 2000’s in the Netherlands, where Nikolov and Ivanović studied, and the title track by Vladimir Nikolov “Artistry in Broken Rhythm” received the 2016 Silesian Jazz Festival award in Katowice. Also this spring, they took second place at the Made in New York Jazz Competition – the jury of this

“Frame and Curiosity” is the second album by the Nikolov-Ivanovic Undectet, and it finds them following a similar formula as their first one, modern big band arrangements guided by Balkan rhythms and melodies, although to many, the Balkan influences might not seem so obvious at first. Vladimir Nikolov handles the arrangements and piano, while Srdjan Ivanovic guides the band from the drum set. The two also wrote all of the original material. The group is fleshed out with a wide array of instruments including three saxophones, a horn quartet and accordion, plus special guest Magic Malik on flute. Magic makes for an excellent addition as he provides some of the most creative solos and adds a bright sound color to the arrangements. Although some jazz flautists can sound a bit shrill at times, Malik gets a strong deep sound from his flute that can hold its own against busy horn charts.

The three tracks that open the album are possibly the strongest, and although the press kit review from Jazz Times sites Gil Evans and Maria Schneider, I’m hearing a lot of classic Don Ellis. The odd-metered East European rhythms topped with complex and busy horn workouts recall Don’s ground breaking concert and recording at Monterrey. Maybe no one remembers Ellis anymore … sad. The rest of the album features some impressionistic ballads, a rock influenced track called “Anonymous”, a slight Latin flavor on “Carefree” and one more ambitious big band excursion titled “Sade Sati”. Jazz’s dance floor era passed long ago, but big bands are back more than ever as creative arrangers seek new sounds and tone colors. Fans of the modern big band sound should find much to like on “Frame and Curiosity”.
