„Atavistic Music“ – Extreme Jazz… or Classical?
With Franz Hummel, Alexander Suleiman (Cello) and Yojo (Piano) have constructed a new style of improvisation that sounds like an extreme, free form of jazz but is, at the same time, related to various developments in avant-garde music.
Each piece bears a characteristic title that, by the radius of its associations, makes it quite unique.
The soloists have had sensational success with their audiences. They have christened their new „natural“ style „Atavistic Music“, the single pieces simply „Atavistics“.
This is an extraordinary, new CD Album in the TYXart series “Crazy Edition”.
