ABSOLUTELY SWEET MARIE

Steffen Faul – trumpet
Matthias Müller – trombone
Alexander Beierbach – tenor saxophone
Max Andrzejewski – drums

The band ABSOLUTELY SWEET MARIE was founded by Alexander Beierbach in 2012 and explores the music of Bob Dylan.

Four musicians, all of them rooted in Jazz and improvised music, transform Bob Dylan ́s work with the tools of their own musical backgrounds. With three horns and drums, the band creates a caleidoscope of sounds and grooves: fragile, chamber-music-like parts meet dense collective improvisations, the sound of a Brass-Band collides with polyphonic layers.
Sometimes the musicians arrange a whole Dylan song for ABSOLUTELY SWEET MARIE, or put it in a new musical context, but often it is only a fragment of a song that serves as a starting-point and provides the material for a new original composition.

Radio Bremen – April 2017 – Arne Schumacher

“It is impressive how the quartet always finds new ways to transform the character and spirit of the Dylan original, including texts, into a coherent instrumental jazz expression. High art of interpretation – which is also a pleasure to listen to!”

 

JazzWord / The WholeNote – September 2016 – Ken Waxman about “Another Side Of Blonde On Blonde”

“… ASM shows its skill by re-contextualizing the familiar themes to take on new resonance. …
… The crowning achievement is when the four inject a circus-like atmosphere into I Want You via yelping horn parts to make it swing in all senses. As notable and thorny as alloying steel, the anthemic Just Like a Woman is re-imagined with a horn trio, with Beierbach almost tying himself into knots as he improvises freely.” – http://jazzword.com/

 

Jazzthetik – July/August 2016 – Angela Ballhorn about “Another Side Of Blonde On Blonde”

“… the adaptations sound great… great arrangements, joy of playing and the necessary pinch of disrespect… crazy good and witty grooves.”

 

Jazzthing – June 2016 – Martin Laurentius about “Another Side Of Blonde On Blonde”

“How fruitful Dylan’s work can be for the four young jazz musicians was shown on the first CD Roads, Doves and Other Stuff. The fact that one can immerse oneself even more deeply in the creative cosmos of the American, that one can discover new facets that are worth working on, transforming and being reborn in a new form, is now shown by Another Side Of Blonde On Blonde.”

 

LongPlay – May 2016 – Robert Ratajczak about “Another Side Of Blonde On Blonde”

“The second album by Absolutely Sweet Marie is not only an interesting and original experiment, it’s also excellent music that both jazz lovers and Bob Dylan fans should reach for.”

 

Jazzthing – February 2016 – Wolf Kampmann about “Another Side Of Blonde On Blonde”

“Well, it’s always such a thing to translate Dylan into jazz, … But with more fun, humour and dedication than the four musicians have done, it is hardly possible to realize this ambitious task. …. It’s rousing, funny and never flat. A tribute worthy of the name.”
