Dejan Terzić’s Axiom
Silent Dancer
CAMJazz, 2021

June 24, 2021

Silent Dancer, released by CAMJazz, is the second album by Dejan Terzić’s Axiom.

After recording Prometheus in 2016 (again for CAMJazz), the new album Silent Dancer by Dejan Terzić’s Axiom was released on May 28th. The line-up has remained the same: the leader on drums, Chris Speed on tenor sax, Bojan Zulfikarpašić on piano and Rhodes, and Matt Penman on double bass. The music, as in the first album, is a very personal mix of American jazz and European folk musical traditions and contemporary sounds.



The most fascinating moments are those expressed in ethereal and open songs: the introductory “Silent Dancer”, the wonderful ballad “Rêve de Voglio”, and the angular “Mysterious Life of Blowfish” are emblematic examples of the group’s aesthetic which mixes different languages, summarizing them in a personal and fascinating music.

There is no shortage of more aggressive songs: “One Note Shot”, with an almost rock-like atmosphere that opens to moments with an avant-garde flavor, “Synchronicity” led by the piano and sax that emphasize the rhythm with long sequences of eighth notes and “Typewriter” which is played on a lopsided but at the same time relentless funk rhythm. “Poem” is instead a track with fairytale flavors, expresed with the sounds of the leader’s percussion, while the final “Chimaera” explores the territories of contemporary jazz (sounds and harmonies) and European folk (the theme of the sax).

Silent Dancer is a personal album that continues Terzić’s search for an experimental and original language.
