Cologne Jazzweek: RE:Calamari
Cologne Jazzweek goes into the third round
12-18 August 2023
The journey continues. Also in 2023 unique artists:inside of the Cologne, German and international jazz scene will be experienced on the many stages throughout the city. Whether in the Stadtgarten, LOFT, King Georg, Open Air, the Ehrenfeld-Clubs or our new venues in the Filmhaus, the Klaus von Bismarck Sendesaal in the WDR or the Philharmonie - new encounters will arise and new stories will be written. Be part of the festival summer 2023 and dive into the wonderful world of improvised music!
At the end of last year, the second album of the quartet RE:CALAMRI around the Cologne bassist Oliver Lutz, simply titled with the number 2, was released. On it you can hear improvisational music, which on the one hand with many unison passages of piano and keyboards (Pablo Held) and saxophone (Wanja Slavin) revive the Heydays of the jazz fusion era, but on the other hand also focus on the tight grooves of an acoustic modern jazz between the leader Lutz and the drummer Andi Haberl. It is always a real pleasure to follow the eruptive joy of playing of these four musicians from Cologne and Berlin, to hear how they model these intricate themes into the acoustic space, and to see how the rhythmic foundation of RE:CALAMARI's music is often put under tension per se. In addition, experiments with different timbres, forms and dynamic processes enrich the aesthetic setting of this quartet.
The complete program of all participating venues can be found on the Cologne Jazzweek website.
Tineke Postma (saxophone), Pablo Held (keys, synthesizer), Oliver Lutz (bass), Andi Haberl (drums)
