Human Element (USA)

Wednesday 02/05/2018 od 21:00

As part of the American Spring festival, we will present our fourth major concert this year at Jazz Dock: Human Element. “In the tradition of Weather Report and the Joe Zawinul Syndicate, two powerhouse pan-global bands that have greatly influenced generations of musicians around the world, Human Element is staking out a new corner of the musical map…Comprised of keyboardist Scott Kinsey (Tribal Tech), electric bassist Matthew Garrison (Zawinul Syndicate, John McLaughlin’s Heart of Things, Herbie Hancock), percussionist-vocalist Arto Tunçboyaciyan (Al Di Meola’s World Sinfonia, Joe Zawinul, Marc Johnson’s Right Brain Patrol) and drummer Gary Novak (Alanis Morissette, Sting, Chick Corea’s Elektric Band), Human Element incorporates elements of fusion, funk and Armenian folk tunes into a potent 21st-century brew that defies easy categorization.” - Bill Milkowski (Downbeat). Human Element has a unique vision. Their electrifying performances and recordings speak of a forward-thinking tradition begun by Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Weather Report and the Mahavishnu Orchestra to name a few, moving these traditions to a totally new place. They blend rhythms and feelings of Funk, Electronic, Improvisation and Folk to create a rich, new sound that ebbs and pulls on the very edges of the listening experience. Human Element is propelling music in a direction as fresh and historical as the musicians themselves. And while the Zawinul influence may be apparent at times, with Human Element the four kindred spirits boldly stride into distinctly new territory.
