Inspired by the legendary American jazz trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, Jakob Bänsch shows us the skill needed to be known all over the world with the rather special Repression.
Jakob Bänsch is a Pforzheim, Germany-based indie trumpeter who creates the kind of classics which are intertwined with so much skill and love.
”The two biggest inspirations for the beginning of ‘Repression’ were the beginning of John Coltrane’s ‘Countdown’ and the beginning of Philip Dizack’s ‘Grow’ (from 2012’s End of an Era). “Dizack is also one of my biggest trumpet idols. And with this piece I wanted to challenge the band’s ability to listen to each other and to feel free while playing.” ~ Jakob Bänsch
Featuring pianist Niklas Roever, bassist Jakob Obleser and drummer Leo Asal, Jakob Bänsch has made a jaw-dropper to glide highly with. There is a warm glow of luminance just waiting to be unwrapped with joyous happiness. Goodness me this is so good and deserves more than a few listens.
Repression from Pforzheim, Germany-based indie trumpeter Jakob Bänsch is the type of song which has the power to change lives. There is an expert level on offer which is such a blessing to witness for all fans of genuine sounds.
In a world packed with music without much meaning, this is a reminder that timeless anthems are always around to save our souls.
