Naomi Jean Presents AO


Naomi Jean – Vocals, Flute, percussion!
Nina Hynes – Vocals and Magic!
Carola Ortiz – Vocals and Clarinet!
Andreas Bonkowski – Bass!
Tomi Simatupang – Guitar!
Sinead Bermingham – harp!
Aine Fujioka – Drums!

and very special guests…

Alice Orchestra is a musical mothership on a mission to open portals and uplift the vibration. Sonic architect Naomi Jean’s unique breed of experimental exotica attracts adventurous collaborators from around the globe, and the AO sound evolves at every port of call.

Serpentine melodies inspired by Ethio-jazz merge with Celtic airs. Modal motifs from the Far East form hypnotic riverbeds to be engulfed by waves of polyrhythmic delirium.

AO is essentially a shapeshifting ensemble that weaves outernational vibrations with a jazz ethos. Artful juxtapositions of pop-mantra, spacious ambience and propulsive beats characterize their playground experimentalism.

OKO


Petra Nachtmanova
Moss Beynon-Juckes
Emma Greenfield

The Berlin based trio combines diverse musical backgrounds with songs inspired by the ancient polyphony from around the Black Sea. The music is centred around the merging of the three female voices, which draw in both traditional harmonies and avant garde composition.

You can hear musical influences from Turkish traditional, English freak folk, Georgian and Bulgarian choral music to progressive rock and Russian disco. OKO uses a multi-instrumental set up including electric guitar, saz and violin, together with synths, loop station and electronic soundscapes.

R O S E M A R I N E


Mia Knop Jacobsen – vocal/keys

Igor Osypov – guitar (www.igorosypov.com)

Philip Dornbusch – drums/pads

https://soundcloud.com/igor-osypov/sets/r-o-s-e-m-a-r-i-n-e

It´s those trashy, grungy vibes combined with electronic sounds of tomorrow, framed by outstanding songwriting of highly acclaimed musicians that makes this band an experience in itself. Formed in 2017, R O S E M A R I N E is about to drop their first EP with a collection of original songs. It´s an artistic statement, a sonical trip, a smack in the face, a recreation of a musical identity that sets the band up into a new artistic journey where a sensitivity for clear pictures goes hand in hand with powerful soundscape and a deep connection to their musical roots.

Sebastian Noelle Quintet


Johannes Lauer – Posaune
Sebastian Noelle – Gitarre
Rainer Boehm – Klavier
Josh Ginsburg – Bass
Peter Gall – Schlagzeug

Guitarist-composer Sebastian Noelle has spent much of his life traveling the elusive path between two worlds. In life, he travels back and forth between his native Germany and his adopted home of New York City; in his art, he navigates the more fluid boundaries between the abstract and the emotional. Throughout that nomadic existence, music has provided a constant source of shelter, an idea that unifies the wide-ranging music on Noelle’s third CD.

On Shelter, Noelle leads a stellar quintet that brings together some of the most forward-thinking and limitless musicians in modern jazz: saxophonist Marc Mommaas (Amina Figarova, Armen Donelian), pianist Matt Mitchell (Dave Douglas, Tim Berne), bassist Matt Clohesy (Seamus Blake, Darcy James Argue, Donny McCaslin), and drummer Dan Weiss (Rudresh Mahanthappa, Dave Binney).

Noelle’s own impressive credentials since arriving in New York in 2002 include more than a decade with Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society, the BMI Jazz Composer’s Workshop Orchestra, the Chris Potter Big Band, the Aaron Irwin Quintet, and the New York Jazzharmonic.

The compositions on Shelter spotlight Noelle’s far-reaching interests, bringing together disparate musical influences, inspiration from documentary film and German literature, and his studies of North Indian rhythms. The album’s ten compositions also manage the tricky feat of melding ambitious complexity with emotional communication.

press quote:

“A guitarist probably best known for his integral role in Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society, Mr. Noelle has a rewarding new album, “Shelter,” that showcases his embrace of both lyrical intricacies and rockish swagger” – Nate Chinen (New York Times)

Uli Kempendorff – Clarinet/Bass Clarinet
Rudi Mahall – Clarinet/Bass Clarinet
Julian Erdem – Drums

James and Declan have been ‘Practically Married’ since April 2015, a name proudly awarded to them due to their ability to spend time together almost every day with only minor frustrations, and the fact that they play almost every concert together.

Associated acts include the award-winning Rachel Sermanni, jazz trio The Good Old Good Ones with Mirna Bogdanović and improv-trio FROG with Fabiana Striffler.

From 2018 they curate and perform a monthly concert series at the very special place where their relationship originally bloomed – Donau115! Since the honeymoon phase is over, each month in 2018 will feature a different special guest to spice things up. Come one come all!

Mishka Adams & Beto


Sparked by a mutual love of Brazilian music that led to a transatlantic collaboration between London and Buenos Aires, the duo of Beto and Mishka has its musical roots firmly planted in South America’s Afro-Latin rhythmic traditions. Their sound stretches from the African influenced Baião of northeastern Brazil, south through the jazzy harmonies of samba and bossa nova from Rio, down into the earthy beats of Uruguayan candombe, and arriving finally at the dancing rhythms of the chacarera and milonga of Argentina.

Their compositions emerge from this melting pot of rhythms, and take the listener on a journey through South America in four diverse languages – Spanish, Portuguese, English, and Tagalog (Filipino) – Mishka’s mother tongue. The combination of guitar, handheld percussion and intricate vocal harmonies bring an intimate experience of story and song, tradition and innovation, and love across continents.

Chacarera de María

– Chacarera: a traditional dance rhythm from Argentina –

Chegaste

– Samba: the flavour of Rio de Janeiro –

La cuerda

– Milonga from the heart of Buenos Aires –

“She is a songwriter’s dream – a great understanding of text, and, quite simply, one of the most beautiful voices I’ve ever heard”
Pete Churchill, Professor of Jazz at the Royal Academy of Music, London

“I´ve been listening to Beto Caletti´s music for a while and I´ve become a fan of his. He is an extraordinary and highly talented musician.When he walks the path of his Brazilian influences he sounds Brazilian and even better than many Brazilian musicians of great fame here in Brazil.”
Ivan Lins, multi Grammy Award-winning musician

“Refreshingly unpretentious and just plain talented”
Time Out London

Beto, from Argentina, has performed on stages all over the world, such as the Montreux Jazz Festival and festivals in Japan, working with artists such as Ivan Lins and Roberto Menescal. He is a renowned composer, performer and educator of South American music, having written three books on the subject and given workshops all over South America and Japan. Mishka, from Manila, Philippines made a name for herself on the Jazz and Brazilian music scenes in both London and her hometown of Manila, as well as touring worldwide. To date they have released multiple albums on Candid Records, Fonarte and Inpartmaint(JP). They divide their time between Buenos Aires and London.

Repeti-Repeti-Repetition (Tom Dayan and Julius Heise)


Julius Heise – Vibraphon
Tom Dayan – Schlagzeug

Inspired by the circle of life – the never ending up and down / high and low / bright and dark we all know or will get to know – that after a while we can recognize as the repetitive thing it naturally has to be, Repeti-Repeti-Repetition plays for you fancy musical perpetuums that just as naturally bring you the truth and meaning you were always (or will soon be) looking for under your bed / behind your laptop screen / in your social relationships BUT never ever have been able to really successfully find – until today, when you finally listen to the relentless repetitions of Repeti-Repeti-Repetition’s acoustic & electronic soundscapes & grooves, get the chance to grab that meaning-of-life-piece of yours, consume it and take it home in your mind and heart and soul and your mind and heart and sould and your mind and heart and.

web devingraymusic.com

There are times when music lovers can just feel a talent coming into his or her own, when that artist is someone to catch onstage or on record at every opportunity.

NYC Drummer-composer Devin Gray is on the cusp of such a moment. The U.K.’s Jazzwise magazine described him as a “musician-drummer rather than a drummer-drummer,” adding: “Gray is interested in making music that is deeply evocative… shaped by a fizzing, often restless push-pull energy.”
The Free Jazz blog praised the band’s 2012 album, the eponymous Dirigo Rataplan, as “intelligent without becoming intellectual or cerebral: This music is all about soul, with technical skills and finesse fully at the service of the end result, full of surprises, emotion and a deep-rooted sense of pulse. One of the best debut albums in years.”

Fans of jazz from Ornette Coleman to Craig Taborn will dig this – music in touch with tradition even as it resonates fully in the moment. — Bradley Bambarger

Tobias Meinhart – tenorsax
Ludwig Hornung – piano
Tom Berkmann – bass
Mathias Ruppnig – drums

Mit seinem neuen Quartett vereint der Saxophonist Tobias Meinhart einige der interessantesten Jazz-Talente Deutschlands. Seit fast zehn Jahren pendelt Meinhart zwischen New York und Berlin und beide Städte beeinflussen seine Musik. Der Fokus liegt auf kurzen Songs als Ausgangspunkt melodischer Improvisation. Als Vorbilder dienen hier z.B. John Scofield, Joe Lovano, Carla Bley und Wayne Shorter. Letzterer gab Meinhart nach einem gemeinsamen Konzert im spanischen Getxo den Rat „Keep doing your thing!“. Dem ist der Saxophonist gefolgt, seitdem spielte er in vielen der angesagten New Yorker Jazzclubs wie dem Blue Note oder Birdland. Mit von der Partie sind ausserdem die Berliner Musiker Ludwig Hornung (piano), Tom Berkmann (bass) und Mathias Ruppnig (dr).

Mit „The Major Minors“ präsentiert Markus Ehrlichs Flexible
Eingreiftruppe ein weiteres hochkarätiges Jazz-Ensemble, das
sich ganz dem ikonischen Sound von Trompete & Saxophon und
Rhythmusgruppe verschrieben hat.

Schon bei ihrer ersten Begegnung im Jahr 2009 fanden „The Major Minors“ heraus, dass sie nicht nur auf der Bühne synchron
ticken. Gemeinsame Auftritte brachten sie vor das große Publikum, die gemeinsamen Wurzeln im Jazz auf neue Pfade. Das Leben der Stadt musikalisch zu betrachten, ihre Stimmungen hörbar einzufangen und Geschichten ohne Worte zu erzählen, trug zu ihrer individuellen Tonfindung bei.

„The Major Minors“ schaffen eigenkomponierte Klänge zu Film-
und Bühnenproduktionen, bestimmen bei Live-Auftritten landauf wie landab den Herzschlag ihres Publikums und interpretieren
musikalische Standards.
Im Jahr 2013 wurden sie u.a. mit dem Deutschen Filmpreis für
den Soundtrack zum Kinohit „Oh Boy“ ausgezeichnet.
Seit Anfang 2017 entwickelt das dynamische Quintett ein neues Programm und gastiert regelmäßig im Berliner Jazz-Club „Donau115“ (“one of the best jazz clubs in Europe” – Adam McCulloch, The Guardian UK).

Der 69 jahre alte Saxofonist ist durch seinen unverkennbaren Sound und seine beeindruckende musikalische Tiefe ein absolutes Highlight der internationalen Jazzszene. Seine Arbeit mit Don Cherry+ Terry Riley, Paul Motian und Bill Frisell aber auch europäischen Musikern wie Jakob Bro, Anderskov Accident bezeugen dies deutlich.

Westergaard, Baumgärtner und Zeuthen werden die Magie des „ersten Treffens“ nutzen und ein komplett frei improvisiertes Konzert spielen.

Antje Rößeleer – Piano
Sidney Werner – Bass

Antje Rößeler studierte Jazzklavier an der HfM Dresden sowie im „Nordic Master of Jazz“ in Stockholm, Helsinki und Århus. Aus einer klassischen Berliner Musiker-Famile stammend, scheinen in ihren Kompositionen, vornehmlich für Jazz-Trio mit Bass und Schlagzeug, unverkennbar klassische Klänge hervor.
Seit ihrem vierzehnten Lebensjahr aber ist sie Entdeckerin der Jazzwelt und aller ihrer Bereiche, die sie erforscht, ohne dabei das Chaos zu scheuen. Dabei genießt sie die Möglichkeit, mit verschiedenen Musikern eigene Stücke, Jazz-Standards und freie Improvisationen zu verbinden. Nach bereits langjähriger Zusammenarbeit mit dem Schlagzeuger Leon Griese, entstand in 2016 das Berliner Trio mit dem Bassisten Sidney Werner.

STEPHANIE NILLES

Stephanie Nilles (US)
piano – vocals

http://www.stephanienilles.com/
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReeCQX4_xhA

Die Sängerin, Pianistin und Songwriterin Stephanie Nilles lebt seit 2010 in New Orleans. Dort fand sie die richtige Umgebung für ihre eigene Mischung aus Jazz, Punk und Kaschemmenmusik.
Als Freigeist hat sie ein besonderes Gespür für abseitige Songs von Exponenten des frühen Blues und des Jazz von rotlichterloher Herkunft. Nilles schreibt Mörderballaden, in denen sie unumwunden Stellung bezieht, etwa zu fragwürdigen republikanischen Politikern, Waffengewalt und der Situation Geflüchteter an der mexikanischen Grenze. Ihr neuester Streich hat buchstäblich dramatische Dimensionen: Nilles siedelt die Tragödie „Othello“ von William Shakespeare im New Orleans nach Hurrikan Katrina an, und zwar als überaus facettenreiche Parabel über Korruption, Missgunst, Rassismus und Gentrifizierung. Einige dieser Songs wird sie erstmals in Berlin zum Besten geben.

Stephanie Nilles is a singer, pianist and songwriter living in New Orleans since 2010. There she found the right environment for her own mixture of jazz, punk and barrelhouse music.
As a free spirit, she has a special sense for ludicrous songs of exponents of early blues and jazz of red-light origin. Nilles writes murder ballads in which she frankly takes position, such as questionable republican politicians, armed force and the situation of refugees on the Mexican border. Her latest coup has literally dramatic dimensions: Nilles settles the tragedy “Othello” by William Shakespeare in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina as a highly faceted parable about corruption, resentment, racism and gentrification. Nilles will perform some of these songs for the first time in Berlin.

Der Gitarrist Andreas Dombert arbeitete in den vergangenen Jahren mit Weltstars wie Pat Martino, Larry Coryell, Philip Catherine, Ulf Wakenius oder Airto Moreira. Mit seiner Formation „Night of Jazz Guitars“ trat er bei hochkarätigen internationalen Festivals auf, als Kopf der Band „Dombert´s Urban Jazz“ experimentierte er mit Elektronik-Einflüssen, feilte an seiner ganz eigenen Klangästhetik und erhielt 2014 den Kulturpreis der Oberpfalz.

Sein Trio-Debüt 35 erschien 2016 bei ENJA und wurde in der Kategorie Gitarre national für den ECHO JAZZ nominiert. 2018 geht er nun mit neuer Trio-Besetzung und neuen Stücken auf Tour. Damit setzt er seine kompromisslose und offenherzige Suche nach eigenen Klangräumen und sinnlichen Melodien fort. Andreas Domberts Musik ist geprägt von warmer Melancholie und einem untrüglichen Gespür für starke Melodien. Der bekannte New Yorker Gitarrenkritiker Bill Milkowski schrieb über ihn: „Guitar aficionados take note: this is six-string work of the highest order”.

“Making a little music does not help us in these difficult times,” a politically committed fellow citizen told me the other day.

Well… when you listen to each other, support and leave room, when the creative process is more important than the pride of each individual and you pull together in the same direction, I believe you have reached a point at which politics has often failed.

Johannes Schleiermacher, Kalle Zeier and Kasper Tom explore music making through improvising. A spontaneous, creative process.

Donau Conversations is a monthly concert series presented by Berlin-based drummer Mathias Ruppnig. Each event will feature groups of varying styles and personnel, performing jazz standards, original music or free improvisation.
“For me, Donau115 is a place that allows new musical and personal friendships to form, as well as a place to experiment with innovative musical concepts in front of a respectful and attentive audience.“
