Upcoming tour with new Album PEGASUS!
Dear Jazz lovers,
Johannes Bigge (piano), Moritz Baumgaertner (drums) and Attika Kontou (bass) start their debut album tour through Germany!
The eight pieces on PEGASUS reflect all kinds of influences, but avoid adapting structures or even familiar melodies directly. Instead, the Johannes Bigge Trio finds their own topics, meanders from catchy motifs to flowing lines, circling repetitions or edgy riffs, playing sometimes gently, sometimes impetuously.
Johannes Bigge sees his compositions as stories that have become sound. It is about a mood and a musical narrative flow in which a part of the composition passes into the next, guides the dynamics of the piece through various modifications and ultimately again to the beginning, or ends up somewhere else.
A while ago, the journalist and festival curator Bernd Noglik put it like this: “Johannes Bigge is on his way to creating his own musical language. His highly nuanced way of shaping sound from the piano does without the fashionable; instead, it proves to be highly talented, sensitive, original and innovative."
The album PEGASUS, the debut album of the trio, lives – among others – from these particular interactions.
