John Law (“wenn er mal eine CD für ECM aufnimmt wird er ein Star!” Jazzethik) bringt sein Art of Sound Trio nach Bayreuth.
Mit dem hervorragenden russischen Bassisten Yuri Goloubev (u.a. Gwilym Simcock Trio) und der Schlagzeugsensation aus Israel Asaf Sirkis (Gilad Atzmon, Tim Garland). Vom leisesten Ton bis zum lautesten.. Von Jazz bis Klassik und mit ein bisschen Rock und elektronischen Effects auch dazu. Das ist das Art of Sound Trio.
John Law’s trio The Art of Sound, with Yuri Goloubev (Russian virtuoso bassist known for his work with Gwilym Simcock) and Asaf Sirkis (Gilad Atzmon and Tim Garland groups) has established, since its formation in 2005, a reputation as one of the UK’s most creative small ensembles.
“If there’s one jazz ensemble on the British scene that wows you with sheer technical brilliance, it’s surely this one.” Ivan Hewitt, Telegraph
John Law (“an interesting and highly gifted maverick musician” Alfred Brendel, “one of the under-recognized giants of British modern jazz/new music piano” Downtown Music Gallery New York 2006) started the trio as a vehicle for his intricate yet accessible compositions.
With two brilliantly acclaimed CDs, both recorded at the Italian studio from which it takes its name: Artesuono, and having played all over the UK, performed live on radio and appeared in concert halls and at festivals in Europe, the trio is now being recognised as one of the most creative new ensembles in Europe today. The new trio sound includes occasional, subtle electronic effects in bass and piano and the addition of unusual instruments such as glockenspiel and hang to the drums sound and some strange electronic ‘toys’ to the piano.
Renowned for incredibly wide-ranging dynamics, the trio covers the entire spectrum, from poised, romantic ballads, to heavy rock-sounding anthems. And plenty of jazz and rhythmic grooves.
“a sublime trio…a band heading for great things!” John Fordham Jazz UK/The Guardian
