WOLFGANG MUTHSPIEL NEW MUSIC FOR QUINTET feat. WOLFGANG MUTHSPIEL guitar, SCOTT COLLEY bass, GWILYM SIMCOCK piano, AMBROSE AKINMUSIRE trumpet & BRIAN BLADE drums
+ SUPPORT: Gareth Williams and the Power Trio with Gareth Williams on piano, Ian Thomas on drums and Laurence Cottle on bass.
Noted Austrian jazz guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel’s latest project is a quintet for which he has composed a brand new repertoire. Muthspiel has put together a personal Dream Team of some of his very favourite musicians:
Ambrose Akinmusire (trumpet), a musician who has become one of the central figures on his instrument in recent years.
The brilliant British musician Gwilym Simcock on piano, who has collaborated with Muthspiel in various settings, most recently in a trio with Joshua Redman.
Bass and drums are occupied by two musicians with whom Muthspiel has worked for some time and with whom he released recordings for ECM and his own label Material Records, namely Scott Colley and Brian Blade.
With all the projects and releases by Muthspiel, (ie. as a composer for classical ensembles or as a singer of his own songs), the main strand of his oeuvre is his work as a composer and improviser of new jazz music. This brand-new ensemble is a great inspiration for his next musical journey.
"Muthspiel combines a flaw less technique honed by classical training with a restless musical imagination as likely to derive inspiration from Bach as from the Blues or the Beatles."London Times
"Wolfgang Muthspiel is a shining light of the contemporary jazz-guitar generation." The New Yorker
