Berlin guitarist Arne Jansen has long been one of the insider tips of the German jazz scene, but with his new album he surpasses himself. Jansen transforms himself from a guitarist to a storyteller, who does not simply (what would be simply called here?) translate the visual worlds of Goya, but has dealt intensively with the mental condition and the changes of the Spaniard and now plays associatively along his life story. In front of the listener's ear there is a whole world of impressions, which, however, gets by without all Hispanisms. Together with bassist Andreas Edelmann, drummer Eric Schaefer and some guests, Jansen conjures up a fantastic sound universe for which Goya is the starting point, but which does not require the listener to get involved in the world of the painter. One can close one's eyes, fully immerse oneself in Jansen's intense sound brushwork and devote oneself to the music. Wonderful!
