Jan Garbarek Group ft. Trilok Gurtu


We're working on it! Meanwhile, check out the upcoming Scottish Jazz Weekend programme here!

Jan Garbarek Group ft. Trilok Gurtu image

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.
