Unesco International Jazz Day : Trilok Gurtu, Paolo Fresu, Omar Sosa
Three of the most talented and adventurous live performers in world jazz unite for a very special trio project. India’s Gurtu is widely regarded as the world’s greatest percussionist; lyrical trumpeter Fresu is one of the great stars of European jazz and Cuban pianist Sosa’s fusion of global sounds with electronics is mesmerising.
Hailed by many as the world’s finest percussionist, Trilok Gurtu’s totally individual technique combines the Indian tradition with many other styles to stunning effect.
“Gurtu seduced the auditorium with awesome percussion magic and pure theatre.” The Herald
Sardinian trumpeter Paolo Fresu has absorbed the influences of Miles Davies and Louis Armstrong into his own uniquely passionate voice.
“one of the great stars of European jazz” – The Independent
“a gentle, lyrical player with the most gorgeous tone” – The Guardian
Pianist Omar Sosa fuses a wide range of jazz, world music and electronic elements with his native Afro-Cuban roots to create a completely fresh sound.
“atmospheric, joyously physical, profound and playful, and always utterly absorbing” ***** The Herald
Guitarist Graeme Stephen, currently Scottish Jazz Award winner for Innovation, provides the perfect foil for Fraser Fifield’s pipes, sax, whistles and electronics. Together they make a truly original sound, rooted in the Scottish folk tradition but exploratory by nature.
