Theo Bleckmann: Origami by AAJ Staff, published on August 1, 2001. Jazz needs more vocalists like Theo Bleckmann. Bleckmann skirts the well-worn path of the standards repertoire, preferring instead to stick with original or group compositions and pieces off the beaten track. He avoids any ostentatious displays of virtuosity. And he liberates a distinctly legato, thick-hued delivery (of great range) which lends itself well to the pastoral settings found on Origami. In general, this record bears an introspective, melancholy feel. Bleckmann's open, bell-like accompaniment on the piano only enhances the effect
What can I say I'm a huge Ben Monder fan. That's really why I bought this album. No offense to Theo at all, but Ben Monder always brings something truly original to a session in terms of music. His knowledge of harmony and his overal single-note/chord choices have always inspired me to pick up a guitar. Having said that, this is a Theo Bleckmann album. His presence is also one that is hard not to recognize. Anyone who's heard Theo's voice can spot it in 2 seconds, which is saying alot. I was greatly surprised by this album. It has some very beautiful songs on here
