Mit Remarkable Shipwrecks
https://remarkable-shipwrecks.bandcamp.com/

Ben Salter ist ein australischer Songwriter und Performer, derzeit im südlichen Staat Tasmanien. Seit fast 20 Jahren tourt er durch Australien und die ganze Welt, sowohl als Solist als auch als Mitglied einer Vielzahl von Ensembles wie Heavy Rock Band Giants of Science, Folk Collective The Gin Club und Bluegrass Super Group The Wilson Pickers. Er ist auch Mitglied der dreiteiligen Post-Punk-Band Hownowmer.

Ben kehrt für seine vierte Solotour im Jahr 2018 nach Europa zurück, um sein neues Album Back Yourself zu unterstützen.

Bens unverwechselbare, emotionale Stimme wird regelmäßig als eine der besten in Australien zitiert. Seine Performances unterstreichen sein Storytelling, Humor und Aufrichtigkeit, während seine Aufnahmen mit einer Vielfalt von Stilen experimentieren, von akustischen Balladen über Indie-Rock, Avantgarde-Soundscapes bis hin zu Instrumentals. Sein eigenwilliger und literarischer Stil steht in der Tradition der Songwriter John Cale, Robert Wyatt und David Byrne und lässt sich von The Velvet Underground, Roy Orbison, The Ink Spots und Low inspirieren.

Er zählt zu seinen Mitarbeitern einige der angesehensten Namen der Branche, wie Gareth Liddiard (The Drones, TFS), Marlon Williams, Mick Thomas (Weddings, Parties, Anything), Tim Rogers (The Bamboos, You Am I), Bernard Fanning (Powderfinger), und der in London lebende Produzent Aaron Cupples (Kirin J Callinan, The Drones, J Spaceman). Er tourte mit Cat Power, J Mascis, Counting Crows, Iron and Wine, Robert Scott (The Clean, The Bats), Built To Spill und viele andere. Ben besucht Deutschland im September 2018 im Rahmen seiner umfangreichen International Madness Tour.

+
Leo Forde – Guitar (Scotland/New Orleans)
Will Howard- Tenor Saxophone (England)
Ugo Alunnii- Drums (Italy)

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.

Since 2015 they have collaborated with Vilde&Inga, Tobias Delius, John Hollenbeck, Max Andrzejewski, João Lopes Pereira, Eric Vaughn and many more, and have become a regular fixture on the Berlin swing dance scene, performing with Ugo Alunni, Eldar Tsalikov, Charles Fréchette and Dima Bondarev. 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!

Andi Haberl / Kalle Zeier


Spätestens 2007, als Andi Haberl fester Schlagzeuger bei den Indie-Rock-Vordenkern The Notwist wurde, fiel sein charakteristisches Spiel einem großen Kreis von Fans und Kritikern auf. Im Jahr davor war der Wahl-Berliner Haberl ebenfalls zur Stelle, als Daniel Glatzel das großartige Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra gründete. Dort lernte er Kalle Zeier kennen, mit dem sich über die Jahre eine persönliche und musikalische Freundschaft entwickelt hat. Heute Abend toben die beiden sich etwas im Krautrock aus. Kann sein, dass die ein oder andere Komposition auftaucht…tendenziell aber eher improvisierte längere Bögen, dynamisch und intensiv gespielt, wie man es von den beiden kennt. Maunz!

Ronnie Graupe – guit
Henrik Walsdorff – as
Felix Henkelhausen – ba
Oli Steidle – dr

freie Improvisationen mischen sich mit songs des Great American Song Book. Vier ausgewiesene Könner der Kreativ-Wirtschaft frönen hier gemeinsam der Lust am Musizieren. Ausgangspunkt sind die songs des Realbook, in deren Verlauf man sich an die Form halten mag und ausbrechen darf. Gemischt mit der Möglichkeit, diese mit freien Improvisationen zu garnieren, wird hier sozusagen mit zwei elementaren Musizier-Weisen gespielt: Form – keine Form. Das spannende daran ist, mit aller Freiheit, das Bekannte und Unbekannte zu gestalten !

Der Hirte Albert


Otto Hirte (sax, cl)
Leon Albert (guitar, bariton-guitar, composition)

DER HIRTE ALBERT
Der Hirte Albert – ein Artikel, zwei Namen, ein Duo und ein lupenreiner Aussagesatz. Otto Hirte (Saxophon, Klarinette) und Leon Albert (Gitarre, Baritongitarre, Komposition) lernten sich bei der Zusammenarbeit in ihrem Quintett Sonore Wandbehänge kennen und legten schon von Anfang an großen Wert auf eine gepflegte Syntax: Das Album Jenen gewidmet, die uns nicht mögen ist seit Januar 2016 erhältlich und erschien beim Berliner Label Contemplate. Nun gehen die beiden mit neuen, hauseigenen Duo-Kompositionen auf Tour. Mal jazzig, mal in Richtung Klassik, mal melancholisch, mal experimentell, aber stets in kammermusikalischer Gestalt und natürlich auch mit viel Improvisation werden hirtesche Albernheiten kreiert, die mit wenigen lupenreinen Aussagesätzen zu beschreiben kaum möglich ist. Hören Sie selbst!

Karl Ivar Refseth Duo

Karl Ivar Refseth, Vibraphon
Christian Weidner, Saxophon

Bei Vibraphon denken vermutlich viele an Rhythmus und Groove, andere möglicherweise an komplexe harmonische Kaskaden. All das kann Karl Ivar Refseth selbstverständlich spielen, nachzuhören in den ersten Produktionen des Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra, beim Tied & Tickled Trio mit Billy Hart und seit gut vier Jahren bei Deutschlands innovativsten Indierockern The Notwist. Für sein eigenes Album Praying kreierte der in Berlin lebende Norweger eine individuelle Ästhetik. „Wenn ich komponiere, denke ich manchmal auch in Strukturen. Richtig am Ziel fühle ich mich aber erst, wenn ich einen besonderen Zauber in der Musik spüre“, erklärt Refseth. „Deswegen sind auf diesem Album viele Melodien, die man in ähnlicher Weise mögen kann wie einen Popsong.“ Letztlich geht es darum, etwas zu spielen, das man wirklich meint, ohne dabei cool sein zu wollen, findet Refseth. „Musik kann starke Aussagen machen, manchmal gerade in leisen, meditativen Momenten.“

Ignaz Dinne – ts
Felix Wahnschaffe – as
Dima Bondarev – tr
Rainer Winch – drums
Felix Henkelhausen – bassPianist Benny Lackner und Altsaxophonist Felix Wahnschaffe stellten ungefähr im Jahr 2012 fest, dass sie in einer gemeinsamen Straße wohnen, nämlich der Boppstraße im Berliner Bezirk Kreuzberg. Das sahen sie als ein Zeichen, ein gemeinsames Projekt zu starten, und von dort aus war es auch schon kein weiter Weg mehr zur Gründung des Boppstraßen Quintetts. Mit Paul Kleber am Bass und Rainer Winch am Schlagzeug wurde eine wasserfeste Rhythm Section mit ins Boot geholt, ergänzt durch das feine Tenorsaxophonspiel von Ignaz Dinné aus der unmittelbaren Nachbarschaft. Und fertig war das Boppstraßen Quintett, ausgestattet mit Kompositionen vielfältiger Couleur, da fast jeder der Protagonisten eigene Stücke und Arrangements beisteuert.http://www.bennylackner.com/boppstrasse/

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.

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)

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.

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
