Tuesday 25 June 2019

Aruán Ortiz piano, Igor Lumpert sax, Masa Kamaguchi double bass, John Bestch drums & percussion.


The best avantgarde jazz makes an impressive entrance with this top-class group when four of the best exponents of the most creative music made in New York come down the steps of the Plaça Reial club.

Chromatic Vortex, the title of this adventure, is a collaboration between the Cuban pianist and composer Auruán Ortiz, a musician defined by Dusted magazine as “a modern magnet who has managed to construct a form of alchemy between Afro-Cuban music, classical jazz and other forms”, and the Slovenian saxophonist and composer Igor Lumpert, considered by the top label Clean Feed as “one of the best-known Slovenian jazz musicians ever”. The cellist Tomeka Reid, an improviser now working with the Art Ensemble of Chicago, and the drummer Chad Taylor, an undisputed leader in the contemporary jazz world in the United States, complete the quartet.

This transoceanic line-up’s sound mixes chamber music, contemporary jazz, folk melodies from the Balkans and rhythms and melodies from Afro-American music, distinguished by their angular beauty and a unique rhythmic beat. Chromatic Vox are committed to expanding the stylistic limits of music, seeking an unrestricted universal language. It is an approach forged from the dialogue and stimulating exchange of ideas between the four creative musical giants forming this extraordinary group.
