Sture Ericson – sax, cl
Johannes Nästesjö – b

With several international tours over the last years, the trio Ericson/Nästesjö/Berre has begun to attract attention around Scandinavia and Europe. The group consists of Sture Ericson (SE) – saxophones and clarinet, Johannes Nästesjö (SE) – bass and Håkon Berre (NO) – drums. Ericson and Berre, both based in Copenhagen, have worked together in different constellations in recent years, e.g. the Maria Faust Jazz Catastrophe. In the autumn of 2014, they met bassist Johannes Nästesjö from Malmö and formed the trio ENB. Based on saxophone, clarinet, bass and drums, as well as various objects and preparations, the trio explores different aspects of free improvisation. This has resulted in a varied soundscape with a wide range of influences ranging from improvisations focusing on tonal textures, to pitch-related linear playing with relations to the free jazz- and jazz tradition.


GRATKOWSKI / TRAMONTANA
Frank Gratkowski – as, cl, bcl, cbcl
Tramontana – trb
„Instant songs“ might be the best way to describe what Sebastiano Tramontana and Frank Gratkowski play in their duo performances. The music is improvised but sounds very composed and each piece has it’s own unique character. Some of them have beautiful melodies, other include the voices of the players or using extended techniques like multiphonics and noise. Some are very romantic, some very abstract. But it’s all about the musical dialog and the instant composition of songs. What both player love in that duo is that the music is very different from the other projects they are involved in. Don’t miss the chance to hear them live!

Free Jazz ist einerseits ein historischer Begriff für freies Improvisationsspiel im Jazz seit den 1960er Jahren,

andererseits ist es ein bis heute ausstrahlendes Paradigma, das die Möglichkeit zur freien Entfaltung immer neuer Formen im Jazz und auch darüber hinaus bereithält.

Der Begriff selbst kann zu Missverständnissen führen, da eine Freiheit in Bezug auf die herkömmlichen Spielhaltungen des Jazz nur bedingt genutzt wird und es neben einer völligen Freiheit in der Form durchaus Improvisationen gibt, die auf Kompositionen und kompositionsähnlichen Absprachen über Strukturen beruhen.


Free jazz is an approach to jazz music that was first developed in the 1950s and 1960s as musicians attempted to alter, extend, or break down jazz convention, often by discarding fixed chord changes or tempos. Though the music of free jazz composers varied widely, a common feature was dissatisfaction with the limitations of bebop, hard bop, and modal jazz that had developed in the 1940s and 1950s. Often described as avant-garde, free jazz has also been described as an attempt to return jazz to its primitive, often religious, roots and emphasis on collective improvisation.
