Yoko Club

We would like you to present an Artist in Residence project with Jim Black, which is at the forefront of a new generation of musicians bringing jazz into the 21st century. In addition to being one of the most influential drummers of our time, he is also the leader of one of the world's most forward-thinking bands, AlasNoAxis, featuring his longtime collaborators Chris Speed, Hilmar Jensson and Skúli Sverrisson. Based on the foundation of his virtuosic but highly personal approach to jazz drumming, Black's aesthetic has expanded to include Balkan rhythms, rock songcraft and laptop soundscapes. Though he is revered worldwide for his limitless technique and futuristic concepts, what many listeners treasure in most Jim Black's work is the relentless feeling of joy and invention he brings to his performances. Jim Black's smiling, kinetic, unpredictable presence has enthralled and inspired audiences worldwide for over twenty-five years.

At the invitation of the drummer and Dr. Langner Jazz Master student Irakli Choladze, Jim Black arrives as an Artist in Residence at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg and gives a concert at Yoko Club with Irakli Choladze's band: Hulement Quartet, which members are one of the most sought musicians of the Hamburg jazz scene.

Band: Jim Black – drums/electronics, Lukas Klapp – piano/keyboards, Lothar Müller – guitar, Giorgi Kiknadze - upright bass/synth, Irakli 'Kuku' Choladze - drums/electronics
