Jazz music concert held in capital

A Jazz music concert by the German band Tubes & Wires held on Tuesday evening at the Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in the capital. Goethe-Institut Bangladesh, in cooperation with the BSA, organised the concert for the local audience.

Niels Klein’s quartet Tubes & Wires, currently on a jazz tour in South Asia, present a unique instrumental line-up based on electrified clarinets and analogue synthesizers to create a strangely diffused analogue-electric sound.

As a quartet band who play forceful rock music in the attitude of jazz musicians through implementation of their instrumental techniques, their’s is a version of indie-jazz-rock music that transcends stylistic borders.

Niels Klein’s quartet Tubes & Wires is not your everyday line-up. With Lars Duppler on e-piano and synthesizers, Hanno Busch on guitar and bass, Ralf Gessler on drums, and the bandleader on various clarinets, Klein presents forceful rock music that is played with the attitude of jazz musicians when it comes to instrumental technique. Saxophonist, clarinettist and composer Klein named his band and new CD somewhat jokingly Tubes & Wires. ‘Tubes’ stands for the various clarinets that Klein plays and ‘Wires’ represents the many electronic, analogue and digital devices that connect with cables and drive his ‘effect clarinets’.

Klein’s Tubes & Wires quartet in fact sounds as if he, together with his band mates, transported Joe Zawinul’s motto for the 1970s group Weather Report, ‘We always solo, we never solo,’ into the present for contemporary improvisers from Europe. Klein explains, ‘I step back from the position of a soloist, and act with my effect clarinets more like an electronic ‘wind organ’. My band mates offer a flexible set of instruments that consists of guitars, basses, keyboards and drums in order to create a strange analogue-electric sound.’
