Some say the jazz police will despair over Panzerballet, the German jazz-metal band led by spectacular guitarist Jan Zehrfeld that Die Welt described as "faster than Metallica, more powerful than Motörhead, and funnier than Rammstein". It's easy to imagine that more sensitive listeners might flee this experience with their fingers in their ears simply on mental-health grounds, but it's hard to believe it would nowadays be dismissed as un-jazz or anti-jazz, since some of it suggests John Zorn, and some even early Steely Dan. Panzerballet made waves with its 2008 debut Starke Stücke, and its successor cranks up the intensity with which Terje Rypdal-like guitar ambiance turns into heavy-rock power chords, sax-led free-jazz, snarling gothic vocals, preeningly cool jazz and ironic love-ballads that sound like Brüno singing with an improv band. Guitarist Zehrfeld is an exhilarating player who seems to relish heart-stopping chord-slams and freshly phrased bebop sprints equally. The interpretations rip apart the Simpsons theme, Abba's Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! and a Zappa medley with even-handed indifference to the originals. It'll be too frivolously ironic for some, but it's great fun.

encore une fois merci pour tout ton blog, que je consulte tous les jours !

aussi varié et intéressant que dans ma tête, c'est rare ^^

j'ai une requête, si ça t'intéresse car je le trouve nul part et je ne mets pas la main sur le vinyle :

aussi peu concerné que je sois par cet artiste, Francis Cabrel à sorti en 1981 un magnifique album appelé "Carte postale", très mélancolique et avec des belles mélodies. Si jamais tu as ça dans tes bacs ...

Dans tous les cas, continue comme ça !! et si besoin de contribution n'hésite pas
