Pablo Held's Buoyancy Band presented by NICA
Cologne pianist Pablo Held, known for his long-standing trio and his collaboration with jazz greats such as John Scofield, Chris Potter and Dave Liebman, unites some of the most influential voices on the European jazz scene in his quartet: trumpeter Percy Pursglove from Birmigham, organist Kit Downes from London and Sean Carpio from Dublin on drums. Pablo Held acts as a narrator, he paints his dream pictures, plays his own compositions, presents original versions of his favourite pieces from various musical genres and in doing so combines the expressiveness of jazz with the sound culture of European classical music and the characteristics of other musical styles, regardless of their origin. Everything has an intense effect because everything he hears is assimilated and transformed. His art is enriched by beauty and truth. His secret: Pablo Held plays self-forgetting and at the same time knows what he is doing.
Pablo Held is one of four Artist in Residence who have been accepted into the pilot project for the promotion of jazz musicians* NICA artist development in the European Centre for Jazz and Contemporary Music in winter 2019.
