Traxsjögärtner

Otis Sandsjö, Sax / Moritz Baumgärtner, Drums / Lukas Traxel, Bass

“Mit ( (( ((( traxsjögärtner ))) )) ) präsentiert der Schweizer Bassist Lukas Traxel zum ersten Mal seine eigenen Kompositionen. Dafür hat er sich mit Otis Sandsjö, dem eigenständigen und unverkennbaren Saxofonisten der jungen europäischen Jazzszene und dem Schlagzeuger Moritz Baumgärtner, der längst nicht nur als rhythmisches Rückgrat, sondern als ein weiterer klangprägender Instrumentalist fungiert, zusammengetan. Dabei funktioniert die Band als Kollektiv, in dem jeder der drei Ausnahmemusiker das Konzert in ungeahnte Bahnen lenken kann. Gemeinsam entsteht ein organischer Klangkörper, welcher mal energetisch und virtuos, mal verträumt und melancholisch daherkommt.”

He also has been extensively touring with “AQ” and with the famous Ukrainian pop/rock artists in Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, Georgia, Israel, Russia and Belarus.
