Jan Garbarek Group ft. Trilok Gurtu
The Norwegian saxophonist and composer is perhaps the best known European Jazz musician of the last fifty years. His haunting sound has been a signature of the leading European record label, ECM, for that entire period, famously with his own groups; playing with Keith Jarrett, Ralph Towner and Zakir Hussain; and with the Gregorian chant of The Hilliard Ensemble. Nothing can prepare you for the sheer beauty and power of his saxophone tone: pure, keening; sharp-edged and crystalline, and hearing it in the context of his live group is quintessential Garbarek. They’ve not performed in Scotland for more than a decade, so we offer an excited welcome to pianist, Rainer Bruninghaus, bassist, Yaron Herman, and the superstar Indian percussionist, Trilok Gurtu.
There is no interval in this concert.
