silent nights

Ray Aichinger & Mattias Nilsson

The international duo of Austrian saxophonist Ray Aichinger and Swedish pianist Mattias Nilsson released their first six-track EP together, Silent Nights, in 2015. The recording was made after a series of performances around Europe in the same year, spanning Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic and Croatia. Silent Nights is a Christmas-inspired album which includes the old favourites Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht and I'll Be Home For Christmas. Jazz Flashes writes: "It's a very interesting collection because it couples two standards with a few carols from the European tradition that show how rewarding the relationship between the folk music of the Old World and jazz can be"..."echoes the style of Lester Young and Ben Webster, and an unlikely recasting of "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning" as a Yuletide song.
