8 Lublin Jazz Festival / Manu Katché – Unstatic (FR)

Both, as a live and studio musician, Manu Katché is one of the greatest drummers of our time. Possessed of an unique playing style, it’s because of his distinct mixture of elegance and power that, time and again, musicians and producers have sought his services. As Peter Gabriel’s drummer of choice Katché was hugely influential on his biggest hit “Sledgehammer” and, more recently, as the focal point of Gabriel’s live band on his “Back to front” world tour. Katché’s long-running collaboration with Sting is also a key aspect of his career, again his distinctive style lending itself to Sting’s biggest hit “Englishman in New York”. A coincidence? Certainly not!
It would take a long time to recount the list of pop greats whom Manu Katché has worked with, however his works in jazz are of equal importance, the most well known of these was as a long time member of the Jan Garbarek Group. Katché also hosted the television music show “One Shot Not” on Arte TV channel, and it was here he met and played with countless musicians from across the musical spectrum. Katchè’s work as a composer and bandleader is an integral part of his career. He has released six internationally acclaimed albums under his own name, his music distinguished by his sense for precise, melodic, catchy themes, it’s unique flow and deep sense of atmosphere. It is testament to Manu Katché’s genius that both these sides of his musical personality – the outstanding drummer and sound-magician, and the composer and bandleader – complement each other so perfectly. The sixth album is called « Unstatic » and the new thing on this new record is the fact that after two albums without bassist, he adds a bassist t0 his band.
