8 new moLdings by the infamous Danish/German quartet.
Voodoo Down Jump is a kaleidoscopic journey through groovy and dense jungle, wide open spaces, playful party-zones, revolutionary riots and honest prayers. Improv meets intricate composition, simple songs meet orchestrated suites and folklore meets quartertones in a highly original melting pot.
The Voodoo cast containes a wide range of instruments including euphonium (a small tuba), bass clarinet, piccolo trumpet, bowed cymbals, percussion, guitars, knobs, a.o. Add curiosity, strong commitment, instrumental skills, spontaneity, and a warmblooded need for musical prescence and individual freedom. moLd is about high level group-playing that accomodates expressive “bang for the buck” in Funkytown as well as heartfelt poetry.
Voodoo Down Jump is the third release from moLd. It is the result of intense work with the music and a major leap towards an even stronger, clearer and more organic aproach to the wildgrowing fungus of moLd.

“Molds musik fastnar aldrig i de antydda mönstren. Den rymmer alltid en motsatt utsaga. Och helheten är vackert gäckande.” - Magnus Eriksson – Lira.se
“Musical virtuosity .. lyrical depth” - Geiger.dk
"moLd is unmistakably in good shape on their 3rd album .... I doubt that Meinberg and Bankes playing has been stronger on CD. ..this jazzcritic got goosebumps. ..
A visionary will to explore open improvisation (..) combined with a compositional ambition that makes moLd more than a bunch of young alfa-males...
moLd is playing a winning hand with a release they can be proud of." - Chr. Munch Hansen – Jazzspecial, DK
