Sizzling duos

Dave Douglas & Joey Baron

Made up of four of the best ears in the business, this American jazz duo provides satisfying fireworks. Like diving into a creative conversation that has been going on for decades. In it, standards (Monk), their own compositions and improvisations flow together seamlessly.

"Douglas poised thoughtfully stage left, Baron quiveringly alert to this every peeled off phrase and half-squeezed note. Their instant intimacy made the cavernous canvas space feel like the fines kind of jazz club. (…)" - London Jazz News

Kamilya Jubran & Werner Hasler: ‘WA’ 

This extraordinary duo unravels a musical universe all their own. With complementary timbres and cultures, they delve into a wealth of verses, modes and languages. Presenting their fifth throw WA (2019, Everest Records), they continue the exploration of new sonic and phonetic territories.

Palestinian oed player Kamilya Jubran is one of the most respected figures of the contemporary experimental and alternative Arabic music scene within her generation. She collaborates with her longtime musical partner; Swiss trumpeter and electronics wizard Werner Hasler.

It began in 2002 as an experiment to bring together different cultural and artistic roots. It led to imaginative interpretations that they are far from exhausted after 20 years.

'Mature, moving, emotional and layered music full of urgency and presence, captivating music that neither dramatizes nor glosses over anything, that is thoroughly honest and plays just above the ground of everyday life - a work of art.'


‘It feels a bit like falling into a dream, where the boundaries between things start to dissolve and language takes on an amorphous quality.’
