Absolutely Sweet Marie examines the music of Bob Dylan.
Four musicians, all of them rooted in Jazz and improvised music, transform Bob Dylans 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.
With their new CD ”Another Side Of Blonde On Blonde“ the four musicians of ABSOLUTELY SWEET MARIE transfer Bob Dylan ́s complete ”Blonde On Blonde“ into their own universe. After the well reviewed CD “Roads, Doves And Other Stuff” it is their second release on the Berlin based Label TIGER MOON RECORDS.
