There are two artists with this name; (1) a Danish world/folk/jazz trio (2) an alias for the electronic musician fred debief.
(1) Bazaar was founded in 1976 by Peter Bastian (bassoon, clarinet, ocarina & percussion), Anders Koppel (Hammond organ) and Flemming Quist Møller (Percussion). Their music is inspired by traditional music of Balkan and Turkey, though they have as well roots in the free jazz of Keith Jarrett. They don’t want to be characterized by a specific genre, however they have agreed to the general term “world music”.
Their concerts are known to be empathy-filled and energetic. At the beginning they open with a free improvisation, in which they try to sense and reach a transcendental contact with the audience. Throughout their concerts they keep including new improvisations and interpretations, which makes their performances versatile.
Bazaar has so far released 9 albums. Incl. Bazaar Live (1978)
Gibbon Jump (1980), Nimbus (1983), Gypsy Joker (1986), En Gudedrøm (1987), Live In Concert (1987), Bazaar Musik (1993) & Triology (2006)
(2) Bazaar is an alias for the electronic/experimental musician fred debief (a.k.a. Ascalaphe)
