GILAD ATZMON EUROPEAN QUARTET
A band that makes jazz relevant and contemporaneous integrating the black American Jazz tradition with European, Mediterranean and World music. The band is one of the most exciting jazz outfits around. It clearly evokes the memories of Atzmon’s legendary Orient House Ensemble (Enja Records) integrating bebop artistry with folk music.
Gilad Atzmon is a British jazz artist and author currently based in Greece. As a member of the Blockheads, Gilad recorded and performed with Ian Dury,
Robbie Williams, Sinead O’Connor and Paul McCartney. Gilad has also recorded with Robert Wyatt and The Waterboys Steve Howe.
Over the years, Atzmon’s music has moved increasingly toward a cultural hybrid. In 2000 Gilad founded the Orient House Ensemble in London and started redefining his own roots. Their album Exile (featuring Dhafer Youssef and Reem Kelani) was the BBC jazz album of the year in 2003.
As a bandleader and reed player he has been pushing the envelope with his powerful personal style that combines great bebop artistry and Middle-Eastern roots in a sophisticated, sometimes ironic manner. Influenced by Coltrane’s powerful approach on the sax, Gilad’s live performances are simply breathtaking and overwhelming.
With his new touring band in Europe, Gilad returns to his jazz roots, although still inspired by Middle Eastern folk music. The international group features the best of the Czech scene – young talent Daniel Bulatkin on piano, Ukrainian bassist Taras Volos and Slovak virtuoso drummer Dušan Černák.
«A formidable improvisational array…a jazz giant steadily drawing himself up to his full height»
«Like the best of albums»
«One of the finest alto players around, Gilad pays his respects to Bird. It’s striking how similar Gilad’s sweet, open-throated sound is to Parker’s, but as you’d expect from the fiery philosopher-turned-Blockhead, this is no tribute album.»
