Artpipes e.V. presents NORTH BY NORTHWEST:
Mike Walker (Manchester) meets Tria Lingvo (Cologne).
Artpipes e.V./Inc. uses culture as a vehicle to connect and unite people in our world. The organisation, founded by Australian musician Maryanne Piper, cultivates a truly global Arts perspective through international artistic co-operations, exchanges and outreach. Their highly anticipated collaboration NORTH BY NORTHWEST brings together award-winning Cologne based TRIA LINGVO and Manchester guitar virtuoso MIKE WALKER to present what is sure to be an especially unique meeting of established contemporary Jazz personalities in 2018/19.
MIKE WALKER is one of the most prolific British musicians of his generation with his talent widely acknowledged among notable international Jazz peers. WALKER has built a distinguished performing, composing and teaching career in the UK and Europe spanning almost fourty years, featuring international touring and many highly recognised collaborations. A long list of distinguished collaborators and esteemed colleagues who have all recognised the breadth and wealth of WALKER'S talent include Steve Swallow, Dave Holland, Steve Rodby, Palle Danielson, Arild Anderson, Peter Erskine, Adam Nussbaum, John Marshall, Bob Moses, Bill Frisell, John Taylor, Kenny Wheeler, Vince Mendoza, Mike Gibbs, Mark Anthony Turnage, Tal Farlow, Palle Mikkelborg, Mica Paris and Norma Winstone.
TRIA LINGVO, winners of the 2014 New German Jazzprize, offers an innovative and highly creative approach to the traditional trio format. At home with exploring the endlessly fascinating ground found between Modern Jazz, energy-laden improvisation and ethnic music, TRIA LINGVO - minus harmony instrument - provides an excellent platform for new musical encounters. Johannes Lemke (Saxophones), André Nendza (Bass) and Christoph Hillmann (Drums, Prepared Drums, Udu, Garrahand and Kalimba) have performed with the likes of Dominique Pifarély, Zoltan Lantos and Ramesh Shotham at festivals such as Leverkusener Jazztage, Enjoy Jazz Festival, Vive le Jazz, and are highly respected in their home scene.
The perfect beginning for a musical encounter of the highest calibre. Artpipes e.V. and NORTH BY NORTHWEST offers a tour formation including new quartet music written for the collaboration, award-winning repertoire from the featured trio, plus Walker's guitar mastery.
