Ugljesa Novakovic "Reflections" Windout Magazine

Typically New Yorker structure and class, Ugljesa Novakovic (sax) is a talent out of European jazz where the forays of Michael Brecker and Bendik are definitely felt on funk harmonies and minimalist fades. The cd is an opening towards the future but it is above all the result of a succession of indie jazz references to styles that the saxophonist has settled over the years thanks to experiences that have allowed him to develop an absolutely recognizable figure. The virtuoso saxophonist Ugljesa Novakovic makes a great entrance on the world jazz scene with this new work of his after the excellent Tales from the Past of 2018; in this release he confirms the great power of the Serbian new wave jazz ..Zen Warrior and Laura's Playing are the most important, dynamic and homogeneous contemporary jazz capsules with Bob Mintzer melodies in mind. In the studio, Aleksandar Grujic (Piano), Andreja Stankovic (Guitar), Milan Nikolic (double Bass), Aleksandar Cvetkovic (Drums).
