Jure Pukl DOUBTLESS

Jure Pukl (ts), Melissa Aldana (ts), Joe Sanders (b), Gregory Hutchinson (dr)

As New York-based saxophonist and composer Jure Pukl enthuses, Doubtless is pretty much a family project/album – an exuberant, high-spirited double-tenor quartet with wife Melissa Aldana plus close friends Joe Sanders (double bass) and Greg Hutchinson (drums). “Doubtless” represents another strong offering from Pukl. Straddling the cusp between composition and improvisation the album is consistently engaging and the playing is excellent throughout. Pukl and Aldana combine well and have the kind of intuitive chemistry that one would expect from a married couple, That said Sanders and Hutchinson are equally brilliant as a team, this supremely adaptable and versatile rhythm section seems to act like a single entity, providing the two saxophonists with exemplary support. Sanders and Hutchinson are both superb technicians and every nuance of their playing is captured on a typically excellent Whirlwind Recordings production. Even more crucially they have a great rapport as a unit and it’s something that they are able to share with the husband and wife team of Pukl and Aldana, the two halves of the quartet combining to create a dynamic and convincing single entity.

Matthias Schriefl 'Shreefpunk'

„Keine Angst vor Einfachem, keine Angst vor Komplexität“ ist das Motto des Trompeters und Bandleaders Matthias Schriefl, unter welchem auch die frisch erschienene CD „Keine Angst vor Shreefpunk“ steht. Das Enfant terrible des Deutschen Jazz (Goethe-Institut) präsentiert mit Shreefpunk plus Strings sein neues Repertoire – ohne Schlagzeug dafür mit den Streicherinnen von Netnakisum. In dieser Formation werden der polyrhythmische Charme und die pulsierenden Grooves seiner Eigenkompositionen noch schärfer gezeichnet. Ärgste Gegensätze werden dabei mit stilsicherer Schöpfungskraft und virtuosem Witz aufgelöst: Anarchie vs. raffinierte musikalische Intelligenz, Chaos vs. Perfektion, Komplexität vs. unbändige mitreißende Spiellust. Die Streicherinnen nutzen alle Spielweisen ihrer Instrumente von Pizzicatos über Tremolos und auch mal krächzende Sounds, um sich auf die Welten von Blues, Punk & Avantgarde einzulassen, um dann doch wieder in orchestral glitzernde Jazz-Voicings zu münden. Eingebunden in Balladen und Songs, in denen der Jazz einfach noch Jazz bleiben darf, können bizarre Rhythmusverschieber auf rockige Gitarrensounds oder ein immer weiter eskalierendes wütendes Trompeten-Solo treffen. Das Komplexe befruchtet hier das Einfache zur puren Freude an der Musik. Weitere Informationen

Jane Bunnett & MAQUEQUE

Jane Bunnett (sax, flute), Melvis Santa (voc, perc), Dánae Olano (p, voc), Tailin Garcia (b, voc), Yissy Garcia (dr, voc), Mary Paz (perc, voc)

Die kanadische Saxofonistin und Flötistin Jane Bunnett ist so etwas wie eine Botschafterin des afro-kubanisch geprägten Jazz. Schon immer zeigte die vielfach prämierte, mit etlichen Orden und Medaillen behängte Instrumentalistin ein Faible für Melodien, Tanzformen und die Artenvielfalt der Rhythmen des karibischen Eilands - die Musikerinnen ihrer derzeitigen Formation „Maqueque“ stammen alle von der Zuckerrohr-Insel. Als die heute 62jährige ihre Band gründete, ahnte sie noch nicht, welchen Erfolg sie haben würde. In der jüngsten internationalen Kritiker-Umfrage des amerikanischen Magazins „Down Beat“ landete „Maqueque“ unter den Top Ten der Jazz-Bands. Außerdem erhielt Jane Bunnetts Gruppe eine Grammy-Nominierung für das wirklich umwerfende Album „Oddara“. Weitere InformationenMi. 06.03. Tickets im VVK bestellen

Michel Meis Quartet

Alisa Klein (tb), Cédric Hanriot (p), Stephan Goldbach (b), Michel Meis (dr)

Einlass 19:30 Uhr Nach einigen Jahren der Stilfindung und Soundexperimenten ist das luxemburgische Michel Meis 4tet dabei sich einen Namen in der europäischen Jazzszene zu machen – mit einem Soundvokabular welches die traditionelle Palette aus Schlagzeug, Posaune, Klavier und Kontrabass gekonnt mit der erfrischenden Herangehensweise und dem breitgefächerten musikalischen Background offener und furchtloser Musiker verschmilzt. Das Resultat ist ein aufregender moderner Jazz, in dem freie und experimentelle Improvisationen auf hervorragend ausgearbeitete Kompositionen treffen. Wo ein vor Energie und Lebendigkeit sprühender Rhythmus auf introvertierte und lyrische Melodien trifft und konventionelle Jazzelemente auf subtil eingesetzte Junglebeats. Obwohl Michel Meis ein wahrer Poltergeist am Schlagzeug ist, lässt er den anderen Instrumenten genügend Raum zur Entfaltung und betont so die Geschlossenheit und Harmonie des Projektes. Das Debütalbum „Lost in Translation“ ist im Januar 2019 in der Reihe „Jazz thing Next Generation“ auf Double Moon/Challenge Records erschienen – eine Premiere für einen luxemburgischen Künstler.

Pol Belardi’s Force

Pol Belardi (e-b, comp), Mara Minjoli (voc), Eran Har Even (git), Pit Dahm (p, dr), Jérôme Klein (dr)

Einlass 19:30 Uhr Pol Belardi is a musician with many faces. With the profound desire not to be limited neither to a style nor to a specific instrument, he feels the need to reinvent himself over and over again. Pol Belardi’s Urban 5 represents his take on a groove-driven, exciting blend between jazz, soul, hip-hop and electronic music. Drawing as much inspiration from the jazz giants as from J Dilla, Stevie Wonder or Hiatus Kaiyote, Urban 5 are bound to make you move your hips or nod your head to a colorful set of fresh, thriving original compositions.Thrilling beats and bass lines seemingly coming right out of the big cities mingle with subtle harmonies, lyrical melodies and clever lyrics, topped up with the powerful, yet sensitive and honest voice of singer Mara Minjoli. Being initially a reduced version of Pol Belardi’s Urban Voyage, a musical power plant gathering 11 musicians, Urban 5 succeeded in creating a language of their own and showcase yet another of Pol’s many creative takes on modern music.

Nathalie Loriers New Trio

Nathalie Loriers (p), Nicolas Thys (b), Rick Hollander (dr)

Einlass 19:30 Uhr For this new project, Nathalie Loriers provides compositions of her own specially written and dedicated to the trio format. She came up with strongly tinged groovy creations and yet very lyrical melody with a search for casting, harmony and a thorough sense for efficient forms. After having experimented for several years in projects providing her plenty of room for writing and arranging, she returned to her favorite formula of the trio format, which allows greater freedom of improvisation and interaction through which each member of the trio can express his personality. To do so, Nathalie Loriers uses one of the most swinging American drummers living in Europe: Rick Hollander, one of the architects of rhythm with an undeniable personality. The third member of this trio is an important figurehead of the European bass. Nicolas Thys owes his reputation because of his characteristic sound, full and powerful, his timing and his ability to constantly make the essential choices. Weitere Informationen

Justin Kauflin Trio

Justin Kauflin (p), Evan Gregor (b), Jimmy MacBride (dr)

Was sagt es über einen Musiker aus, wenn er ein Schützling des großen Quincy Jones ist? Der legendäre Produzent wusste ganz genau was er tat, als er Justin Kauflin unter seine Fittiche nahm. Denn dieser Pianist ist etwas ganz besonderes: ausgestattet mit immensen Fertigkeiten und charmantem Witz, swingend, traditionsverbunden und doch immer mit einem Ohr an der Moderne. Der 32jährige, der als Kind sein Augenlicht durch eine Krankheit verlor, zitiert mal ganz straight aus dem Real Book, hat in seinem Repertoire aber auch Beatles-Nummern oder Stücke des Singer-Songwriters Sufjan Steves. Und wenn er Eigenes mit autobiografischen Bezügen spielt, können sich schon mal leicht schräge Country-Klänge in seinen Jazz mischen. In der Unterfahrt stellt Justin Kauflin sein von Derrick Hodge und Quincy Jones produziertes Album „Coming Home“ vor. Weitere InformationenMi. 13.03. Tickets im VVK bestellen

GENERATIONS Fred Wesley - Leonardo Corradi - Tony Match

Fred Wesley (tb), Leonardo Corradi (org), Tony Match (dr)

Decades after his work with James Brown and George Clinton established him as one of the architects of funk, Fred Wesley has begun a new project that connects him to his jazz roots and to the future: Generations. ​​Generations is an expandable trio featuring 75-year-old Wesley on trombone, 26-year-old Italian prodigy Leonardo Corradi on the organ and 47-year-old French drummer Tony Match. Three musicians who initially came together to pay tribute to the soulful jazz of legendary organist Jimmy Smith, they clicked and continue grooving together. Their show combines Wesley’s talents and experience working with artists from Count Basie and Ray Charles to Lenny Kravitz and D’Angelo, Corradi’s energetic reflection of Smith and other historic jazz giants, and Match’s jazz drumming colored by unique influences including African beats and electronic sounds.

Paulo Morello SAMBOP

Paulo Morello (git), Lula Galvão (git), Dudu Penz (b), Mauro Martins (dr)

Dem deutschen Gitarristen Paulo Morello wird schon lange attestiert, dass er eine brasilianische Seele besäße. An der Seite von Sängerinnen wie Viviane de Farias und Lygia Campos, aber auch im populären Projekt „Morello & Barth“ lebte er seine südamerikanische Seite bislang aus. Jetzt präsentiert er sich mit seinem neuen Brazil-Quartett „Sambop“. Da ist der Name ist Programm, spielt der 48jährige hier doch eine pfiffige Mixtur und vereint die federnde Leichtigkeit und Luftigkeit der Samba mit den rasenden, kürzelhaften, geschwungenen Themen und dem Tempo des Bebop. Für dieses wirklich originelle und unerwartete Genre gewann er drei brillante Instrumentalisten aus Südamerikas größtem Land: den Gitarristen Lula Galvāo, den Bassisten Eduardo „Dudu“ Penz und den Schlagzeuger Mauro Martins.

Emile Parisien Quartet

Emile Parisien (sax), Julien Touéry (p), Ivan Gélugne (b), Julien Loutelier (dr)

„Double Screening“, das neue Album des Émile Parisen Quartets, trägt der Tatsache Rechnung, dass unser heutiges Leben von Monitoren bestimmt ist, auf die wir ständig glotzen. Es behandelt unsere Sucht nach immer neuen News und den Zwang, immer und überall erreichbar zu sein. Unsere „schöne neue Welt“ hat der vielleicht beste Sopransaxofonist seiner Generation in grandiose Kompositionen übersetzt. Titel wie „Hashtag“, „Spam“ der „Malware Invasion“ statteten Émile Parisien, Pianist Julien Touery, Bassist Ivan Gélugne und der neue Schlagzeuger Julien Loutelier mit hoher und doch nachvollziehbarer Informationsdichte aus. Den kalten digitalen Zeiten halten die Vier eine Musik entgegen, die bei aller Intelligenz ungemein heißblütig und emotional ist. Weitere InformationenDo. 21.03. Tickets im VVK bestellen

Deva Mahal

Deva Mahal (voc), Ashton Sellars (g), Dominic J. Marshall (keys), Pat Stewart (b), Alex Brajkovic (dr)

Deva Mahal was born with the blues in her blood. Becoming the genre-defying artist, powerhouse vocalist and astute songwriter that she is today could only be achieved through living a life rich with pain, joy, loss, love, heartache and experience. A soul as singular as Deva’s can only find voice through an equally unique sound, which she’s forged by growing her blues roots through the fertile soil of modern R&B, indie-pop, soul, rock and gospel. Listeners will get their first taste of that distinctive approach in October 2017 with the release of Deva’s debut EP from Motéma Music. The full scope of her voice and vision will be revealed in 2018 on Run Deep, her aptly-named first album, produced by Scott Jacoby (Vampire Weekend, José James, Coldplay) along with newcomer Jarrett Wetherell. The title captures not only her estimable musical bloodline but the finely-hewn emotions that course through her songs. Deva plumbs her own emotional depths to explore issues of overcoming adversity, battling one’s own demons and dealing with the pains of love and loss, alongside wry observations on contemporary romance. She breathes vivid life into those songs with a knockout voice that combines pulse-pounding soul with a decidedly modern edge. Deva (presciently, or perhaps an example of self-fulfilling prophecy, her name is pronounced “Diva” but given a slight twist) is the daughter of blues icon Taj Mahal and Inshirah Mahal, a dancer, artist and educator who Deva refers to as “my rock.” Their support and influence combined with Deva’s inborn passion and soaring talents make her a formidable and inspirational artist. Those remarkable facets come together strikingly on Run Deep, which is composed of ten new songs and a powerful cover of a King/Goffin hit from the 1970s. Deva’s songs are as infectious as they are stirringly personal, placing her powerfully moving voice in the service of raw, vulnerable explorations of resonant emotion. Her songs draw on a deep well of personal experience, serving as revelations, cautionary tales, and empowerment anthems. "When you are bullied and treated like you don't belong, or faced with great adversity at a young age,” she says, “you learn ways to cope. Music gave me an outlet to express the pain of those experiences and the strength to challenge racial, physical and gender stereotypes." The wider world started to realize Deva’s songwriting talents in 2008, when “Never Let You Go,” a co-write with her father, gained acclaim on the Grammy-nominated album Maestro. She’s also collaborated with a wide-ranging array of artists, including TV on the Radio, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, and Fat Freddy’s Drop. She’s performed at such renowned festivals as Sonar, Womad, the Atlanta Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival and Montreux Jazz Festival “Every experience in life leaves a mark,” Deva sums up. “Evidence of its existence. Some experiences leave scars, deep grooves inside your very soul that never truly leave you. That is where Run Deep comes from. I never want to wade in the shallow places in life because it's easier, safer or more comfortable. My music speaks a lot about pain and heartache, but I dive into those feelings, submerge myself in them so I can work through them and get to the other side.” Weitere InformationenFr. 22.03.

Tobias Meinhart BERLIN PEOPLE

mit Kurt Rosenwinkel

Tobias Meinhart (ts), Kurt Rosenwinkel (g), Ludwig Hornung (p), Tom Berkmann (b), Mathias Ruppnig (dr)

Der Traum vieler Jazzmusiker ist es, das Jazzleben von New York City hautnah zu erleben. Der Saxophonist Tobias Meinhart hatte den gleichen Traum und zog vor zehn Jahren aus seiner Heimat in die US-Metropole. Inzwischen hat sich der Saxophonist dort als feste Grösse etabliert und spielt regelmässig in den angesagten Clubs wie dem legendären Blue Note oder Birdland. Im multikulturellen Big Apple wurde ihm auch bewusst dass seine deutschen Wurzeln für seine musikalische Identität von zentraler Bedeutung sind. Für sein neues Album Berlin People wollte Meinhart die musikalische Kultur von New York City und Deutschland verbinden, indem er mit einigen der besten jungen deutschen Jazzmusikern und dem berühmten amerikanischen Jazzgitarristen Kurt Rosenwinkel eine Band formte. Kurt Rosenwinkel wird als einer der innovativsten Gitarristen seiner Generation angesehen und gilt seit den 90er Jahren als einer der Wegbereiter des Modern Jazz. Sein gesanglicher Ton ist zu einem Prüfstein für jeden jungen Gitarristen geworden. Meinharts eigene Musik war in den letzten Jahren im Wandel. Seine letzten Aufnahmen hatten oft eine Trompete als zweite melodische Stimme, die aktuellen Kompositionen sind nun mehr auf Gitarre ausgelegt. Die Musik auf Berlin People ist geprägt von starken Unisono Linien, zugleich humorvoll, stimmungsreich und voll mitreissender Energie. Mit Berlin People balanciert Tobias Meinhart zwischen seinen New Yorker Träumen und seinen deutschen Wurzeln. Weitere InformationenSa. 23.03. Tickets reservieren

Allison Miller's BOOM TIC BOOM

Allison Miller (dr), Jenny Scheinman (vl), Ben Goldberg (cl), Kirk Knuffke (tp), Myra Melford (p), Todd Sickafoose (db)

“Ms. Miller is a drummer, bandleader and composer with an aesthetic of limber poise, drawn at once to brisk maneuvers and deep grooves.” –Nate Chinen, The New York Times Hailed by Downbeat as one of the top 20 jazz drummers, Allison Miller marries her love of composition, drumming, and community in the form of her critically acclaimed band, Boom Tic Boom. Described as cinematic chamber jazz, this leading-edge sextet’s music—featuring Jenny Scheinman on violin, Myra Melford on piano, Kirk Knuffke on cornet, Ben Goldberg on clarinet, Todd Sickafoose on bass, and Miller on drums- is at turns challenging and accessible, teasing and tough, virtuosic but never overbearing, and always grooving. Miller’s compositions reflect her diverse musical upbringing and versatile palette and she aims to, in true collective spirit, highlight each member of the band. This year marks Boom Tic Boom’s 10 year anniversary and they will be celebrating with the release of their 5th album on Royal Potato Family. The band has evolved over the years developing a truly unique sound. The current material is full of surprises and has been described as a celebratory genre-busting organic mash up of Bach, clave, klezmer, and the Jazz Messengers. Previous releases include Boom Tic Boom (2010), Live at Willisau (2012), No Morphine No Lilies (2013), and Otis was a Polar Bear (2016). Boom Tic Boom has toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe. Notable performances include the Chicago Jazz Festival, SF Jazz Center, Earshot Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival, Molde Jazz, Müenster Jazz Festival, Mary Lou Williams Jazz Festival, Stanford Jazz Festival, Lugo Jazz Festival, Saalfelden Jazz, Willisau Jazz Festival, Hyde Park Jazz Festival, Pittsburgh International Jazz Festival, Reykjavik Jazz Festival, Burlington Discover Jazz, and Iowa City Jazz Festival. The band has been met with critical acclaim receiving 4.5 stars from Downbeat and making “Top 10 Jazz Albums” lists for The LA Times, Downbeat Magazine, Jazz Journalists Association, and Something Else. Press features include WNYC’s New Sounds with John Schaefer, NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series with Bob Boilen, JazzSet with Dee Dee Bridgewater, WBGO’s The Checkout: Live with Josh Jackson and Simon Rentner, and NPR’s Jazz Night in America. Boom Tic Boom is a recipient of Chamber Music America’s “Presenter Consortium for Jazz Grant” and is proudly sponsored by Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation. “Miller’s craftiness as a percussionist is met by her ingenuity as a composer and group conceptualist.” -The New Yorker “Boom Tic Boom has a razor-sharp precision that recalls classic drummer- led ensembles of 50 years ago—the music of Art Blakey, Art Taylor and Max Roach come to mind—but Ms. Miller’s band works from a diverse sonic palette that is unmistakably contemporary." – Martin Johnson (Wall Street Journal.) “Allison Miller’s BOOM TIC BOOM (is) strong and striking. Miller is deeply committed to her projects and has a band committed to following her there.” –Kurt Gottschalk – NYC Jazz Record Weitere InformationenDi. 26.03. Tickets im VVK bestellen

David Krakauer's Ancestral Groove

David Krakauer (cl), Keepalive (sampler), Sheryl Bailey (git), Jerome Harris (b), Michael Sarin (dr)

„David Krakauer​ is to clarinettists what Jonas​ Kaufmann is to operatic tenors, Keith Jarrett to improvising pianists, Bela​ Fleck to banjo players and Zakir​ Hussain to tabla players. He is not just an utterly distinctive benchmark, he extends his instrument's potential in ways that mess with one's mind, while underpinning this with that fathomless emotional content.“ -John Shand, the Sydney Morning Herald David Krakauer – ANCESTRAL GROOVE DAVID KRAKAUER (Clarinet, Bass Clarinet). Only a select few artists have the ability to convey their message to the back row, to galvanize an audience with a visceral power that connects on a universal level. David Krakauer is such an artist. Widely considered one of the greatest clarinetists on the planet, he has been praised internationally as a key innovator in modern klezmer as well as a major voice in classical music. Known simply as “Krakauer” to his fervent following, he is nothing less than an American original who has embarked on a tremendous journey transforming the music of his Eastern European Jewish heritage into something uniquely contemporary. That journey has lead Krakauer to an astounding diversity of projects and collaborations ranging from solo appearances with orchestras to major festival concerts with his own improvisation based bands. He has shared the stage with a wide array of artists such as the Klezmatics, Fred Wesley, Itzhak Perlman, Socalled, Eiko and Koma, Leonard Slatkin, and Iva Bitova while being sought after by such composers as Danny Elfman, Osvaldo Golijov, David Del Tredici, John Zorn, George Tsontakis, Mohammed Fairouz, and Wlad Marhulets to interpret their works. In addition, he has performed with renowned string quartets including the Kronos, Tokyo, and the Emerson and as soloist with orchestras such as the Orchestre de Lyon, the Orquestra Sinfonica de Madrid, the Phoenix Symphony, the Brooklyn Philharmonic, the Dresdener Philharmonie, and the Detroit Symphony, among many others. SHERYL BAILEY (Electric Guitar). Sheryl Bailey is rated among the foremost bop-based guitarists to have emerged from the 90s. Her attack can be direct and hard swinging, but she also exudes subtlety, elegance of phrase and a pure, warm liquid sound. She was voted a new “Rising Star” by the DownBeat critics in 2013. Bill Milkowski has written about her: “A modernist burner with an abundance of Pat Martino-style chops, Bailey prefers angular lines, odd harmonies, and the occasional touch of dissonance as she sails up and down the fretboard with fluid abandon.” — Jazz Times Magazine JEROME HARRIS (Bass). Jerome Harris has won international recognition as one of the more versatile and penetrating stylists of his generation on both guitar and bass guitar. Jerome’s first major professional performances were as bass guitarist with Sonny Rollins in 1978; from 1988 to 1994 he was Rollins’ guitarist, and appears on five of his recordings. Jerome has also recorded and/or performed live on six continents with such jazz notables as Jack DeJohnette, Bill Frisell, Ray Anderson, Don Byron, Bobby Previte, Oliver Lake, Paul Motian, Amina Claudine Myers, Bob Stewart, George Russell, Julius Hemphill, and Bob Moses. His extensive international work includes several stints in Japan with Sonny Rollins, as well as tours organized by the U.S. State Department: to India and the Middle East with vibraphonist Jay Hoggard’s group, to five African nations with Oliver Lake’s reggae/jazz/funk band "Jump Up," to India and south Asia with flutist Jamie Baum and guitarist Kenny Wessel, and to six African nations with soprano saxophonist Sam Newsome and guitarist Marvin Sewell. Jerome Harris has performed on more than sixty recordings, making for a wide-ranging discography. His recordings as bandleader include Rendezvous—the first-ever jazz release by the audio connoisseur magazine Stereophile—which captures the drive and grace of his quintet in gorgeous high-resolution sound. On Hidden in Plain View (New World), Jerome’s acoustic bass guitar underpins an all-star group reinterpreting compositions by jazz trailblazer Eric Dolphy. Among Harris’s latest appearances on record as featured sideman are Bob Stewart’s Connections: Mind The Gap (Sunnyside), A Trumpet In The Morning by the Marty Ehrlich Large Ensemble (New World), Jack DeJohnette’s Oneness (ECM), Roy Nathanson/Sotto Voce’s Complicated Day (Enja), Checkpoint by David Krakauer's Ancestral Groove (Label Bleu), Inch By Inch by Yard Byard: range of musics—rock, pop, blues, country, gospel, folk and R&B—as both fan and player. After earning a B.A. in psychology and social relations at Harvard College in 1973, Harris attended New England Conservatory of Music as a scholarship student in jazz guitar. He graduated with honors in 1977. MICHAEL SARIN (Drums) Over the last twenty years, drummer Michael Sarin has been at the center of New York City’s genre bending jazz and improvisation community. His versatility and musical wit helped forge long associations with forwardlooking artists Thomas Chapin, Dave Douglas, Myra Melford, Ben Allison, and David Krakauer. Born in 1965, Michael was raised on Bainbridge Island, WA—a ferryboat ride from Seattle. His interest in music and the drums came early, nourished by both the record collections of his parents and older sister, and by the AM radio he received at age seven. His formal music education began during high school with drummer Dave Coleman, Sr. He went on to study with Tom Collier at the University of Washington, and later with Jerry Granelli at the Cornish College of the Arts. Since moving to New York in 1989, Michael’s unique style and approach to the drum set has been highly sought after by NYC and European musicians looking to expand the definitions of jazz and improvised music. He has contributed to recordings by the forementioned artists as well as those of Frank Carlberg, Anthony Coleman, Mark Dresser, Marty Ehrlich, Mark Helias, Denman Maroney, Simon Nabatov, Mario Pavone, Ned Rothenberg, and Fred Wesley--recordings found on numerous music critics’ Top Ten CD year-end lists. Michael performs all over the world--in major and minor festivals; concert halls famous and infamous, big and small. He can be heard on recent recordings of Frank Carlberg, Mark Dresser, Erik Friedlander, David Krakauer, and Leslie Pintchik. KEEPALIVE (Sampler) Jeremy Flower has been called the "secret weapon" of Boston's Unlockedgroove collective, one of the premier groups of techno producers on the US East Coast. He performs solo as Keepalive, and is one half of Rainbow Bright with Mike Uzzi, aka Smartypants (Traum, Zero G). Jeremy has also shared the stage with several other world-class elite electronic music producers, including: Isolee, Sammy Dee, Greg Shiff, Keith Fullerton-Whitman (Hrvatski), Broker/Dealer, Greg Davis, Marumari, Frank Heiss, and Jake Fairley. Perhaps his most prestigious collaboration has been with Argentine composer Osvaldo Golijov, with whom he worked on the Grammy-nominated Ayre and the one-act opera Ainadamar also nominated for two grammys. Both of these works have been recorded for and released by Deutsche Grammophon. For the iTunes release of the opera, Flower was commissioned to compose a downtempo bonus track based on one of the Arias. Flower and Golijov have worked on pieces for the Kronos Quartet and Canadian Singer Tanya Tagaq Gilles. They have just finished a film score for Francis Ford Coppola's newest movie Youth Without Youth. Jeremy Flower graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music with a degree in Composition, where he studied with Michael Gandolfi and Caleb Morgan. Since moving the computer to the center of his creative focus, he has been an active participant in the underground electronic music worlds of Boston and New York – playing clubs such as Filter 14, Liquids, Galapagos, Sin-e, Middlesex, the Phoenix Landing and Tonic as well as countless house parties. He has also been heard dropping his laptop drawl with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Jamie Haddad, Mark Dresser, Gustavo Santaolalla and David Krakauer in venues such as Carnegie Hall, LA's Disney Hall, Lincoln Center's Rose Theater, the Santa Fe Opera and Cleveland's Severance Hall alongside Weitere InformationenMi. 27.03.

Lars Danielsson (b, cello, effects), Paolo Fresu (tp, flh, effects)

Da haben sich zwei gefunden, ein Nordmann und ein Südländer. Beide sind von fast gleicher Mentalität, beide Klang-Poeten, beide Lyriker, beide eher dem Stillen als lauten Klängen zugeneigt; wenn der schwedische Bassist und Cellist Lars Danielsson und der italienische Trompeter und Flügelhornist Paolo Fresu zusammen musizieren, ist das wie eine warme Sommerbrise: sie ist nicht nur für unseren Körper wohltuend, sondern auch für unsere Seele. „Summerwind“ heißt das Album, auf dem der 60jährige Skandinavier und der 57jährige Stiefel-Bewohner der Schönheit von Melodien vertrauen. In eigenen Nummern, einer Bach-Bearbeitung, dem Standard „Autumn Leaves“ und einem Titel des Polen Krzystof Komeda sagen sie mit wenigen aber gehaltvollen Tönen unendlich viel.

VoicesInTime / Stefan Kalmer

Think about it!

Sonst findet man Chöre meist nur in Gospel-Messen, auf Kirchen-Emporen oder in klassischen Konzerten. Ein großes a cappella-Unternehmen, das sich auf ein Crossover aus Jazz und Pop versteht, ist hingegen die große Ausnahme. Die mehrfach prämierten Stimmen der VoicesInTime gehören in ihrem Bereich zu den Ensembles der ersten Stunde in München und lösen unter der Leitung von Stefan Kalmer die Grenzen zwischen den Genres gekonnt auf. Im neuen Programm „Think about it!“ zeigen sie ihre Flexibilität, singen Goethe-Lyrik, schmettern Nummern von Meat Loaf und den Welshy Arms, von Billie Holiday, Jamie Cullum oder der gerade verstorbenen Soul-Göttin Aretha Franklin, intonieren „Eternal Flames“ von den Bangles genau so wie „Halleluja“ von Leonard Cohen.
