With his extensive artistic biography, Tim Berne is one of the most outstanding figures in American jazz. Rising star Gregg Belisle-Chi, a connoisseur of Berne's music, has this year released the acclaimed album Koi, featuring interpretations of Tim Berne's compositions on solo acoustic guitar. With his extensive skills and immense sonic potential, he is earning a central place in the landscape of contemporary acoustic guitar.

With Mars, these two exceptional musicians present their first duo album. All songs are penned by Tim Berne and enchant the listener with an intense interplay that is playful, poetic and sonically stunning. David Torn, who is responsible for the grandiose sound, writes in the liner notes: "Space Music? no, nope: Earth Music? well, yeah. Folk Music? well… i dunno, could be, but these songs on Mars are written by Tim & reimagined in-real-time by he & Gregg: them 2 being edified by, appreciative & respectful of those who've come before, & especially those ones who stayed lit and busted their own asses & spirits in
order to continue initiating the kinds of flames that push us all to strive to express & to feel things of life & lives that may otherwise be functionally inexplicable, and may even be ineffable, somehow."

 

Mit seiner umfangreichen künstlerischen Biographie zählt Saxofonist und Komponist Tim Berne zu den herausragenden Persönlichkeiten des amerikanischen Jazz. Rising Star Gregg Belisle- Chi, ein Kenner der Musik Bernes, hat dieses Jahr das gefeierte Album Koi mit Interpretationen von Kompositionen Tim Bernes auf der akustischen Sologitarre veröffentlicht. Mit seinem umfangreichen Können und seinem immensen klanglichen Potenzial erspielt er einen zentralen Platz in der Landschaft der zeitgenössischen akustischen Gitarre.

Die beiden Ausnahmemusiker legen mit Mars ihr erstes gemeinsames Duo-Album vor. Alle Songs stammen aus der Feder von
Tim Berne und verzaubern die Hörer:innen mit einem intensivem Interplay: verspielt, poetisch und von einer umwerfenden Klanglichkeit. David Torn, verantwortlich für den grandiosen Sound, schreibt in den liner notes: "Space Music? no, nope: Earth Music? well, yeah. Folk Music? well… i dunno, could be, but these songs on Mars are written by Tim & reimagined in-real-time by he & Gregg: them 2 being edified by, appreciative & respectful of those who've come before, & especially those ones who stayed lit and busted their own asses & spirits in order to continue initiating the kinds of flames that push us all to strive to express & to feel things of life & lives that may otherwise be functionally inexplicable, and may even be ineffable, somehow."
