"Franz Koglmann, who likes to cross borders, pursues a dialogue between styles. Using this dialogue, which he consciously allows to include disruptions, Koglmann elegantly and expertly weaves his way along a path that avoids both the classical jazz clichés and the hermetics of e-music. His cool way of bridging worlds is often referred to as the '3rd Vienna School' by critics. On Don't Play, Just Be Koglmann collaborates with one of the world's leading New Music orchestras, the Klangforum Wien, conducted by Emilio Pomárico, and with outstanding jazz soloists. He impressively succeeds in harnessing the traditions of classical modernism and jazz for his very own world of sound. The four movements of the suite Don't Play, Just Be are a dialogue between a jazz quartet the legendary British tenor saxofonist and clarinettist Tony Coe, guitar virtuoso James Emery from New York, Franz Koglmann on the fluegelhorn and Klangforum bassist Uli Fussenegger -- and composed and written processes of European e-music. The dialogue is enhanced by references to a text by Jean Cocteau and the films of Jacques Rivette, as well as hints of French film scores brought in by the accordion and violin."
