ÄTSCH @ Bray Jazz Festival 2022
The Harbour Bar, Friday, 29th April 8.30pm
Led by Irish-based German guitarist, Matthias Winkler, ÄTSCH fuse contemporary jazz improvisation with the sound aesthetics of modern-day post-rock.
They create a sound world that is rich in lyrical melodies with ample space for each of the soloists to shine.
Taking their cues in equal measure from post-rock giants like “Sigur Rós” and “Explosions in the Sky,” as well as contemporary Jazz artists such as Julian Lage, ÄTSCH have certainly got the attention of the European Jazz Scene, being one of the first Irish artists to perform at ‘Jazzahead, the prestigious ‘trade show’ of emerging jazz that takes place in Bremen, Germany, each year.
This is promising music that mixes jazz improv with a post-rock sensibility.
Guitarist Winkler is joined by drummer Hugh Denman, bassist Eoin O ’Hallaran and pianist Graeme Bourke.
