The Estonian saxophonist and composer Maria Faust is among the

Ensemble, delivering a alloy of jazz, exemplary and
choice stone that defies categorisation. The unusual lineup
will embody bandleader Maria Faust on alto saxophone, Ned Ferm on
effort saxophone, Ida Nørholm on cello, Jacob Anderskov on piano, and
Nils Bo Davidsen and Adam Pultz Melbye on double bass. Mixing
traditional, initial and healthy sounds, their cover song is
characterised by powerful, vivid improvisations and song-like melodies.

An innovative and artistic jazz artist of a younger
generation, Rudresh Mahanthappa enjoys general acclaim, with
countless awards as a covenant to his work.  With roots in India, the
gifted musician detected his passion for Carnatic song by a
friend, a Indian saxophonist Kadri Gopalnath. His personification is
characterised by a alloy of rhythmic structures with complicated jazz. At
a BMW Welt Jazz Awards on 24 Mar 2019 the
Rudresh Mahanthappa Quintet will underline Rez Abbasi
on guitar, Bobby Avey on piano, François Moutin on double drum and
Rudy Royston on drums. Together, they will revisit a critically
acclaimed Bird Calls album, in that Mahanthappa leans toward the
song of saxophone fable Charlie ‘Bird’ Parker to broach a
opening that is his really own. His personal, rarely virtuoso
interpretations of a strange compositions benefaction a themes, solos
and arrangements of a godfather of complicated jazz in a totally new
context. Mahanthappa couples powerful, passionate, complicated jazz with an
lavish fun of playing.
