A Film by Myles O’Reilly featuring Ernst Reijseger and music of Trio Reijseger Fraanje Sylla.
In 2009 I first watched the film by Werner Herzog ‘Wild Blue Yonder’ and for the first time heard a film score composed by cellist Ernst Reijseger. Recognized for his efforts with jazz drummer Gerry Hemingway, as well as numerous other roles as a session man and leader, Dutch cellist Ernst Reijseger is also known for his avant/classical/world music proclivities and his collaborations with Harmen Fraanje and African vocalist Mola Sylla under the moniker Reijseger Fraanje Sylla. In this film Ernst teams up with Harmen Fraanje and singer Mola Sylla as well as forty year long session partner Franky Douglas and steel pan virtuoso turned bass guitar player Leslie Joseph.
