Jazz at JAKI feat: Tobias Hoffmanns Expressway Sketches

Der Vorverkauf ist beendet. Es sind noch ausreichend Tickets an der Abendkasse erhältlich.

nternational tours, enthusiastic audiences, sold out records... After the resounding success of "Love Surf Music" this All-Star-band of young German and Austrian jazz artists now presents their new album SURFIN' THE DAY, LOVIN' THE NIGHT. Even deeper than their predecessor, the four specialists penetrate the subject matter of jazz, surf music, Motown, Tom Jobim, Henry Mancini and Krautrock; they open up stylistic connections and give them a contemporary update.
Having an unmistakable band sound is something that many people promise and few actually keep – with the Expressway Sketches, it's a reality that has grown over the years.
The Band grooves better than ever and the rich sound palette, which they elicit from their Vintage Gear
is in no way inferior to first-class productions from America. Their compositional growth is also audible. The music on SURFIN' THE DAY, LOVIN' THE NIGHT seems more mature, more substantial - and yet hasn't lost any of its raw, immediate urgency. The Expressway Sketches ride the surf wave. The fun they have is highly contagious. Let's go to new old shores!

Who are the Expressway Sketches?
Four of the most successful jazz musicians in Europe. Resides in Cologne, Hamburg, Vienna and Berlin. All of them have won numerous awards (including WDR, SWR, Neuer Deutscher Jazzpreis, ECHO Jazz, Prix du Jazz Européen) and are on the road worldwide with their own bands Shake Stew, Interzone, Hütte, Quiet Fire, Hive Mind and Tobias Hoffmann Trio. Their love for surf music brings them together, their audience is always enthusiastic - whether in Baku or Bonn, Paris or Prague, Saalfelden or Saargemünd.
