JAN GARBAREK GROUP

 


Nobody plays the Saxophone quite like Jan Garbarek. His sound has become
an unmistakable trademark and this sound for some time now has acquired
another dimension than what is generally understood as Jazz. Innumerable
record releases, concerts in the most significant concert-halls throughout the
world, the many years he collaborated with Keith Jarrett or his unprecedented
work with the Hilliard Ensemble have made this unique Saxophonist popular
across all musical genres and borders.
It has never been of any interest to him that critics need to find convenient
labels to sort people out into musical categories. Garbarek eludes this
attempt. You find his work in Jazz, Classic and Pop-charts. Since the early
days of the Munich cult label ECM he has been one of its most successful
representatives.
The sound alone certainly does not make the music. In his compositions and
improvisations Jan Garbarek is a master of unbelievable tuneful music that
cuts right into our soul. Expansive sound spaces stretch from absolute
tranquility to expressive rapture, radiating an astounding sense of peace that
however does not allow a moment of boredom. His concerts develop in a
highly organic manner providing a wide ark of rising tension. This music
breathes and provides space to breathe. This music sounds simple and
complex at the same time. This music is hymnal and sparse, playful and
serious, immersed and exceptionally open, intense rather than sentimental.
On his current tour Jan Garbarek will be accompanied by his keyboardist of
many years, Rainer Brüninghaus, the e-bassist from Brazil, Yuri Daniel and
master drummer Trilok Gurtu from India. These musicians, all of them
technically highly trained, guarantee that the mutual journey will offer an
extraordinary concert experience filled with magical moments. An
unmistakable sense for density and ambience generates a sound space that
leaves traces in ones deepest self - a sensual sensation.
