About the album

An album of solos and intimate duos with, as its starting point, the sound of Marilyn Mazur’s percussion instruments, collected from all over the world – each of them allowed to “speak” with its own voice – either alone or in dialogue with Jan Garbarek’s saxophones. The Danish percussionist spent 14 years on the road with the Jan Garbarek Group, appearing on albums including “I Took Up The Runes”, “Twelve Moons”, “Visible Worlds” and “Rites”, but “Elixir” marks the first time that Mazur has established the parameters for their musical collaboration. In these improvisations she continually triggers new responses from Garbarek: yearning melodies, joyful dances, meditations.
