The title is homage to the legendary “New Concepts of Artistry in Rhythm” by Stan Kenton, but the music is new and fresh, and has a very subtle twist in using modern “broken” rhythm, developed by drummer Srđan Ivanović, and contemporary compositions and arrangements, written by Vladimir Nikolov. The ensemble instrumentation is another kind of tribute in itself, to the legendary “Birth of the Cool” ensemble with french horn and tuba, again with a twist – added tenor sax and accordion to the line-up. The aim is to bring the old passion for writing for medium-to-large ensembles in a new setting, but not in a typical “arranged standards” manner; rather as an organic whole. The title composition “Artistry in Broken Rhythm” has been awarded a third prize at a composition competition in Katowice, Poland last year.
