DJANGO BATES meets WOLFGANG MUTHSPIEL
One can expect improvisation on the highest level during this first ever encounter of these artists.
The Italian press dubbed Django Bates “ the Monty Python of jazz” the French press described him as being “In full Possession of an over active imagination” while the Danes awarded him” The Nobel Prize of Jazz” – The Jazz par Prize in 1997. A virtuoso on Piano and Eb Horn he is treasured for his off beat wit.
Wolfgang Muthspiel is considered to be one of the most influential guitarists of our time. 30 CDs with mainly his own compositions document his work as bandleader and co-leader. Being trained as a classical musician he approaches the acoustic guitar with the same ease as improvisation and jazz. Among numerous „smaller“ awards Wolfgang Muthspiel received the Hans Koller Prize for „Musician of the Year“ in 1997. In 2003 he was voted European Jazz Musician of the Year. Musicians Magazine ranked him among the „Top Ten Jazz Guitarists of the World“.
