Everything about Brien’s World, the latest release by the Vienna-based, classically trained jazz virtuoso Georg Brienschmid, is larger than life. This double disc release is an impressive package, with quirky graphics and liner notes totaling 44 pages. Still, the physical product barely manages to contain the headspinningly diverse and wonderful music housed within. In Brien’sWorld, Brienschmid presents a varied collection of 28 pieces that range from odd-metered classical romps to funky soul-jazz and tongue-in-cheek hip-hop. Throughout, Brienschmid’s bass work is magnificent, his astonishingly nimble playing creating a huge pocket with a tone that is thick, focused, and organic. Brien’s World is one that’s certain to humor, amaze, entertain, and inspire. —BENJAMIN LEVINE
