Jasper Blom Quartet with Bert Joris & Nils Wogram – polyphony
Sat 15 December 2018 - 19:00 Sun 16 December 2018 - 04:00
By the end of 2018 the Jasper Blom Quartet is going to present two live albums with the titles Polyphony and More Polyphony (Whirlwind Recordings). They together form the documents of the cooperation with the guest soloists Nils Wogram and Bert Joris.
Tonight there will be a dubble concert with both guest soloists at the Koorenhuis. The theme of the albums is polyphony, which is a composition of multivoiced music; you hear several melodies at the same time. They refer to the inspiration for this dubble album: using polyphony during the 14th and 16th century by Flemish, Dutch and German composers.
The German trombone-player Nils Wogram is well known for his outstanding and virtuose trombone-playing. The sounds are sometimes sharp like a trumpet as well as low like a didgeridoo. The Belgian trumpet-player Bert Joris is one of the most well known jazztrumpet players of Europe. As an endowed instrumentalist, a productive composer and arranger and also as a leader of his band he’s a striking figure in the jazzscene. His activities as a jazz educator are well known all over Europe.
Jasper Blom and his all-star Quartet have now released four albums. You hear influences of different styles in the electro-jazz-cocktail of Blom’s compositions which come together into the wish to experiment, a freedom of interplay, many effects, funkgrooves and swinging jazz.
