About the album

The title of the latest album "Pattern & Decoration" by saxophonist Romed Hopfgartner may sound a little inconspicuous at first glance. What is meant, however, is the movement in the fine arts from the late 70s and 80s that dealt with pattern combinations and abstract ornamentation. The aim was to focus on those elements that were considered purely decorative in the West, as well as the associated handicraft techniques. It is similar with the music that can be heard on this album: Jazz, a genre that is often dismissed as a bit dusty or as "background music", is now celebrated here in all its forms, colors and possibilities. This is not about cerebral structures, but about beautiful lines between melodies and harmonies. Sometimes playful and driving, sometimes enjoyable and relaxed. In this way Romed Hopfgartner created a wonderful world full of color that gives jazz its special shine.
