Fans van Colin Stetson mogen zich schrap zetten: baritonsaxofonist Jonah Parzen-Johnson komt naar Bar Mirwaar!

Vorig jaar nog bracht hij het geweldige album ‘I try to remember where I come from‘ uit. Op dit album toont hij zijn voorliefde voor improvisatie en traditionele folk.

Parzen-Hohnson is wat je noemt een klassiek geschoold muzikant. Hij kreeg les van musici van de 'Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians' in Chicago, studeerde jazz aan NY University én maakt deel uit van de Afrobeat-groep Zongo Junction. Live zal hij je wegblazen, zonder meer.


***QUOTES***

"Thanks to dewy immersions like “Too Many Dreams,” haunted by abstraction but guided by a compassionate pulse, this is his strongest statement yet." - New York Times

"Parzen-Johnson’s vaguely alien compositions split the difference between the organic and the synthetic with a far-reaching, expressive sound that carries an indefinable beauty." - LA Times

"This album vividly channels free-jazz with elements of improvisation and composition, combining to create a sustained meditative mood, transporting listeners to another world." - Downbeat Magazine

"Parzen-Johnson crafts transfixing sonics that meld traditional folk ideals with his own experimentation." - XL8R
