Jort Terwijn is a harbinger of a new wave of brilliant Dutch jazz musicians. In Slovenia, Terwijn played at the 2023 Druga Godba Festival with the Teis Semey Quartet, in the context of the Footprints programme. Önder (which translates as “under”) is a bass ensemble consisting of double bass, bass guitar, two bass clarinets and drums. Together they create a fresh and rare musical installation in an acoustic-electronic context. The compositions are at times hypnotic, labyrinthine drones or chopped-up beats. The ensemble ventures open soundscapes to harsh avant-garde, constantly on the quest for new curves in the musical lineage of jazz. It will come as no surprise if the gig turns out to be this autumn's most surprising jazz concert.
The Cankarjevi torki Series hosts the Achim Kirchmaier on the initiative of David Jarh, one of Slovenia's finest jazz trumpeters and Kirchmair's guest on the Sunkeeper album.
The Tyrolean guitarist Achim Kirchmair, his band and their new album "Sunkeeper" (O-Tone Music) prove in a really impressive way that modern jazz does not necessarily have to include difficult and complex sounds, but that it can be more than just exciting in its more accessible form. Achim Kirchmair is known to be a sort of "cross-over" guitarist whose style cannot easily be placed into any single category. If you look at his previous work over various projects, it immediately becomes clear that you are dealing with a musician who seems to feel at home in a wide variety of genres. The Tyrolean and his band understand very well how to render their more complex way of playing into something flowing and therefore accessible. The compositions and improvisations flow seamlessly into one another, the lively back and forth between the musicians ensures wonderful alternation.
