11. Lublin Jazz Festival | Gnigler Sextett (AT)

Working in Vienna, Sextet, whose leader is Jakob Gnigler – currently the most interesting sax player in Austria. In his works he reaches for the jazz tradition, not omitting the output of the contemporary musical avant-garde and experiment. Solo and collective improvisations permeate, overlap, creating a musical monolith, known for example from the work of Willem Breuker Kollektief. Sextett uses a bebop phrase, and growling tones of saxophone and chamber sound. Exciting inserts of wind instruments and atonal collages put this music at a low rate. Styles and rhythms are constantly changing. There is a lot of temperament, expression and courage in all of this – the band’s music is expansive, but also free, played with conviction and pietism. Despite this intricate eclecticism, the band’s playing is embedded in the tradition of truly “hot” jazz.
