Laubrock, Ingrid: Sleepthief (Intakt)
Label: Intakt    
Released in: Switzerland    

"Over the past years Ingrid Laubrock has gradually come to the limelight of the current jazz scene. She has won several awards and prizes with a jazz that is boldly modern yet deeply rooted in tradition. The music of her trio Sleepthief is born from the very moment, yet the compositional consciousness of form seems to guide the free improvisations here. Born in the Münsterland region in a musical family Ingrid Laubrock took off to Berlin as soon as she finished school. In Berlin she eked out a living on odd jobs and went to London. Jean Toussaint was her first saxophone teacher. A book by David Liebmann made Laubrock travel to the USA where she attended a one week masterclass with the Miles Davis saxophone player. The impact was overwhelming. Laubrock took a 6 months sabbatical, she practiced frenetically to take in all the new impulses. After this she went to study jazz for one year. The polystylistics of the 1990 jazz have formed Laubrocks musical view of the world. "Even today I try to listen to many different styles and to absorb as many new influences as I can. You have to be receptive, all sensors ready to pickup. That opens one's senses for new sensations" says Laubrock. With her trio Sleepthief she acts on this maxim."-Intakt
