Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek is one of a kind. His music, his very name are synonymous to European jazz and the signature sound of ECM, the recording company that has released almost all of his albums. At the same, though, Garbarek’s lyricism and his poetic approach to music have been hailed for their universal qualities, transcending nations and countries.

Jan Garbarek’s sound has made an impact on the work of many other major musicians of a wide range, from Keith Jarrett to Eleni Karaindrou. More importantly, for the past 50 years, Garbarek’s own music has incorporated eclectic influences from jazz, world music and classical music. Jan Garbarek Group, consisting of Garbarek’s longtime regular collaborator German pianist Rainer Brüninghaus, Brazilian bassist Yuri Daniel and Indian ‘magician’ of drums Trilok Gurtu, form an important chapter of his career.

Musicians: Jan Garbarek (saxophone), Rainer Brüninghaus (piano), Yuri Daniel (bass), Trilok Gurtu (percussion)

As part of the Athens & Epidaurus Festival 2020. For the past 50 years, Garbarek’s own music has incorporated eclectic influences from jazz, world music and classical music.
