Anders Koppel – “Everything Is Subject to Change”
My reviews of Anders Koppel‘s Everything is Subject to Change has been published on Music is Good. You can read the opening paragraph here, then follow the link below to the rest of the article on the MiG site.
Marking Anders Koppel’s first solo Hammond organ release, Everything Is Subject to Change is an intriguing mix of atmospherics and organics. Pianist Kenny Werner and saxophonist Benjamin Koppel imbue the music with an austere elegance, whereas Anders Koppel’s organ and Jacob Andersen’s percussion brings an earthy element to the music. The balance between the two makes for an album that equally engages head and heart.

Thank you so much for your great review of our disc Everything Is Subject To Change. You really capture the essence of what we aimed, which of course make me very happy. All the best, Anders Koppel
PS. By the way, Benjamin is not my brother, but my son!

Anders, thank you so much for commenting. I can’t believe I made a mistake on the familial relationship. I first discovered Benjamin’s music on the duet album with Kenny Werner “Walden”, and then soon after Benjamin released one of my favorite albums of all time “Adventures of a Polar Expedition,” an album which had a profound effect on me and which I still listen to all the time.
Well, that got me started on listening to the music of anyone who had the last name Koppel, whether it was jazz or classical or whatever. It also introduced me to the Cowbell label. And, of course, now your excellent album “Everything Is Subject to Change.” Sometimes when I write about music I love, I get a bit sloppy with my editing because I’m so engaged with the music.
I’ll get that fixed.
And, again, thanks for visiting and, more importantly, thank you for the music.
