A FIREWORKS OF JAZZ TO GET YOU GOING


The three instrumentalists are pulling off an effervescent and sparkling performance that casts a spell over the listener; ever open-minded, they inimitably combine the most diverse musical topics whilst drawing from the broad stock of jazz history. Playing with all kinds of styles and never forgetting their respective– Balkan – roots, they follow the composed piece as well as leaving room for artful improvisations.


The sound created by Esad Halilovic and his partners is full of thrilling melodies, boldly virtuoso solos, surprise twists and breaks, unconventional experiments and electrifying build-ups. The mood pendulum swings between loud and muted, intimate and exotic, the mysterious – and outrageous nonchalance.
