In February it was a pleasure to visit Sao Paulo, see my friends, family and play two great concerts at the theater from SESC Pompeia, one of the best places to play in Brazil. Here there are some memories of the concert, that was recorded by Paulo Kishimoto and you can see some beautiful fotos from Felipe Pepe Guimaraes. I hope you enjoy!
This week I am really happy to play some of my compositions with great musicians and friends in São Paulo – Brazil. The concerts will be at SESC Pompeia on 15th and 16th February. And if you want to learn some portuguese and know a bit about this project, you can watch my short interview made by the website NaVitrola.
In February of 2013 we had the Mere Bigband world premier in Sao Paulo – Brazil. At the concert we played the composition “Die Sonne” that was written for the text of Kaleb Erdmann for the project “Bunt und Kühl”, from the Uni Jazz Orchester Regensburg. Many people from Sao Paulo wrote original texts for the music and we published these texts last year on internet! And now everyone can hear the original text and the music because the CD “Bunt udn Kühl” is ready. I hope you like it!
After one week free jazz workshops in Poland in July 2013 I started writing some free jazz experiences. This piece is called WIST, and it is dedicated to the concert hall of the jazz department in Graz, that is a mix of bar, theater, rehearsal room, etc…
You will need a little patience to hear the piece because it is 18 minutes long, but if you survive until the end, then write for me with some impressions. This band is my first quartet with the great musicians Luis Andre (Drums), Jan Kopcac (Sax) and Ivar Krizic (Bass).
I hope you enjoy and if you would like to see/play the piece partiture, please write and I will be glad to send it!
