Recently relocated from Brooklyn NY, veteran drummer Jim Black leads a brand new band of some of Berlin’s finest young jazz killers. Featuring Danish alto saxophonist Asger Nissen, and the German shredders Julius Gawlik on tenor sax and Felix Henkelhausen on bass, this strong, tough, and fast-swinging band writes and plays original songs for quartet inspired by the music of Ornette Coleman, Thelonious Monk, Paul Motian, and Joe Henderson.
The recent Covid lockdown situation has been very difficult for artists in so many ways, yet at the same has presented a great opportunity to rethink, reassess, and design plans for a more effective and sustainable performing future.
This band looks forward to launching out into the traveling and touring circuit to do just that, with upcoming concerts around Europe and beyond.
