Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival
Jan Garbarek Group
Nobody plays the Saxophone quite like Norwegian Jan Garbarek. His haunting sound has become an unmistakable trademark from collaborations with Keith Jarrett and Zakir Hussain, to best-selling releases on the iconic ECM label or with the Gregorian chants of the Hilliard Ensemble.
Nothing can prepare you for the sheer beauty and power of his saxophone tone: pure, keening, sharp edged and crystalline. Hearing it in the context of his live group is quintessential Garbarek - hymnal and sparse, playful and serious, immersed and exceptionally open yet intense. He is joined by his keyboardist of many years, Rainer Brüninghaus, the e-bassist from Brazil, Yuri Daniel and master drummer Trilok Gurtu from India.
