Bandapart China Tour

This one just came in by Jon of YGTWO, who is actively promoting jazz and rock events in China: Bandapart, a Danish band is coming over (again) for a 5-city tour.  Here are the details:

Bandapart has been compared with Chicago’s avant-rock scene, the Icelandic “sound”, experimental jazz and Bill Frisell. The four band members are veterans of the Danish jazz scene, and all four musicians share a predilection for the playful and improvisational aspects of performing together. The band describes its music as a constantly varying journey through a colourful sound landscape. Guest musicians from The Danish Royal Symphony Orchestra, the Copenhagen jazz underground and New York’s downtown scene assist in adding nuance to Bandapart’s musical universe.

Bandapart乐 队(分离乐队)是一支堪与芝加哥前卫摇滚、冰岛“声音”、实验爵士、以及Bill Frisell相提并论的乐队。乐队的四名成员均是丹麦爵士乐坛的宿将,热衷于合作演奏过程中的轻松交流和即兴发挥。他们希望通过他们的音乐呈现给听众一 幅色彩斑斓、鲜明生动的音响画卷。Bandapart乐队经常与来自丹麦皇家交响乐团、哥本哈根地下爵士、以及纽约市区音乐等团体及流派的 嘉宾乐手进行合作,从而使其其音乐风格更加丰富细致。

What the press is saying about Bandapart:
“Bass, guitar, drums and keyboards are instruments equally suitable to rock and jazz, and Bandapart operates constantly in the borderland between the two.” GAFFA (Danish music magazine)
“贝司、吉它、架子鼓、和键盘等乐器不但适合摇滚乐的动感演奏,同时也适合爵士乐的表现形式,分离乐队的很多作品都融合了摇滚与爵士的精华。”
GAFFA(丹麦音乐杂志)

“Fans of early ECM-era Bill Frisell, Tortoise, Godspeed You! Black Emperor. The Chicago Underground and other Post-Rock ensembles will find much adore in Bandapart” – Cadence Magazine, New York
“Bandapart乐队的成员热衷于ECM时代早期音乐家的作品风格,如Bill Frisell,Tortoise,Godspeed You! Black Emperor。在Bandapart乐队身上可以看到Chicago Underground和其它后摇滚风格乐队的影子。”
纽约Cadence Magazine
