Joachim Kühn - Chalaba



Η πιο πρόσφατη, εμπνευσμένη, δημιουργική δουλειά του συνόλου που αποτελείται από τους Joachim Kühn (grand piano, alto saxophone), Majid Bekkas (guembri, oud, kalimba, vocals) και Ramón López (drums). Ξέρω πως η περιγραφή μοιάζει αποτυχημένη από χέρι, ωστόσο η φρεσκάδα του δίσκου φαίνεται από το πρώτο του τραγούδι. Αν η world jazz ενδιαφέρει ακόμα κάποιους ακροατές σ' αυτό τον κόσμο, εδώ υπάρχει μία κυκλοφορία που αξίζει να προσέξουν.

Biography

Kühn was a musical prodigy and made his debut as a concert pianist, having studied classical piano and composition with Arthur Schmidt-Elsey. Influenced by his elder brother, clarinetist Rolf Kühn, he simultaneously got interested in jazz. In 1961 he became a professional jazz musician. With a trio of his own, founded in 1964,[1] he presented the first free jazz in the GDR. In 1966 he left the country and settled in Hamburg. Together with his brother he played at the Newport Jazz Festival and recorded with Jimmy Garrison for Bob Thiele's Impulse! Records.
Kühn has lived in Paris since 1968, and worked with Don CherryKarl BergerSlide HamptonPhil WoodsMichel PortalBarre PhillipsEje ThelinRay LemaHellmut Hattler, and Jean-Luc Ponty. As a member of Pierre Courbois's Association P.C., he turned to electronic keyboards. During the second half of the 70's he lived in California and joined the West Coast fusion scene and recorded with Alphonse MouzonBilly CobhamMichael Brecker, and Eddie Gomez.
Having settled near Paris again, he played in an acoustic trio with Jean-François Jenny-Clark and Daniel Humair since 1985. In the summer of 1996, he joined Ornette Coleman[1] for two concerts at the Verona and Leipzig festivals, which opened the way for his Diminished Augmented System. More recently he has toured with Rabih Abou-Khalil.
