Friday @ New Languages Festival
Friday @ the festival was really killin – maybe the highlight of the whole thing? First a duo of trumpet and saxophone – Amir ElSaffar and Hafez Modirzadeh. Never heard that kind of music on these instruments. Great counterpoint moments and poetic interplay.
Then I heard a couple of tunes from the second band Positive Catastrophe. Was quite cheerful – I wasn’t feeling cheerful that day myself though. And then, my first time ever, Tim Berne. I can see why so many people love his composing. They played 4 pieces, I especially liked the second one, the one without a name. Made me buy a CD 😉 I planned to go to the Blue Note Late Night Session that day, but never made it, felt too tired and quite satisfied with Tim Berne’s music anyway 😉
