3rd Day: 6 June 2018
21:00 Drifter (Belgium)
Nicolas Kummert (saxophone, vocals), Alexi Tuomarila (piano, moog), Axel Gilain (bass, vocals, guitar), Teun Verbruggen (drums, live electronics) This group is the reformation of the quartet of the Finnish pianist Alexi Tuomarila, a famous musician of the European jazz scene who is based in Belgium and is very well-known in our country, as he has previously performed in Athens Technopolis Jazz Festival. This quartet had been performing all over the world -Europe, Australia, Japan etc.- for 20 years before making a pause. The reformation of the group, under the new name Drifter, led to a remarkable album (Flow) in 2015 leaving the audience with a sense of creatively exploring new limits of their music. The use of vocals, guitar and electronic elements brings a new style to the group’s music with the combination of freshness and precious creative experience of the past.
22:00 All Too human (Denmark)
Peter Bruun (drums, bass), Simon Toldam (keyboard), Marc Ducret (electric guitar), Kasper Tranberg (trumpet) The paradoxical of this ensemble is that its music sounds simple without being simple and it can take you to unknown places without it being unknown. It has a fairy tale essence- and in fairy tales, many marvelous things can happen. The Danish drummer Peter Bruun formed this group by gathering experienced musicians who know how to improvise- in jazz, rock, new and no wave fields- without putting limits to their creativity. Their album Vernacular Avant-garde was recorded in Copenhagen a year ago and it combines the familiar with the unexpected while transferring us to wondrous worlds.
23:00 Sebastian Studnitzky “MEMENTO” orchestral experience (Germany)
Sebastian Studnitzky (trumpet & piano), Paul Kleber (double bass), Tim Sarhan (drums), Olga Holdorff (violin), Katharina Landsberg (violin), Leila Weber (viola), Cornelia Jambrowicz (cello) The trumpeter and pianist Sebastian Studnitzky is a special figure of German’s modern jazz scene – and a lot more. As a matter of fact, he is a musician who can easily maneuver through the various fields of jazz, classical and electronic music thus creating new music which stands out for its detailed perfection and minimal grace while it touches pop and jazz perspectives, as modern as they can get, without being consumed by an avant-garde approach. That is the very reason why Studnitzky’s music fits with every trend of the German nu jazz – groovy, instrumental, dance electronica etc. The “MEMENTO” project is his fascinating journey in the field of classical and jazz aesthetics, with a strings ensemble accompanying his trumpet and piano in perfectly narrative and deeply touching compositions – music that has already set him in very high level
