descriptions, reviews, &c.

"With Jason Kahn and Axel Dörner, two versatile and independent musicians meet to combine different traditions to a radically individual form of expression.

The musical spectrum of the German trumpeter Axel Dörner ranges from classical bebop over new music to free jazz and free improvisation. In his virtuosic playing these influences find their echo - beautiful sound in the free change with spooky sound surfaces and wafting marginal vibrations.

Jason Kahn's artistic oeuvre moves in the broad field between graphically noted compositions, installation works and free improvisation with voice, drums and electronics. From language, image and sound, the artist born in New York and living in Zurich forms a holistic cosmos. Where Jason Kahn's installations address the perceptions and concepts of space, his musical expression is a sign of physical presence. In particular, his vocal performances are characterized by a tremendous physicality. Kahn takes the vocal organ back to its basal sounds - from the throaty groaning to the sonorous cry - and thus creates a language of shattering primal strength."-Zoom In Festival


Artist Biographies:

"Axel Dörner (born 26 April 1964 in Cologne, Germany) is a German jazz musician (trumpet and piano) and composer.

Dörner studied piano in the Dutch town Arnhem (1988-89) and at the Music Academy in Cologne (1989-1996). From 1991 he studied trumpet with Malte Burba, and during his studies he collaborated with trumpeter Bruno Light in the "The Street Fighters Duo". At this time he also joined the ensembles "The Street Fighters Quartet" and "The Street Fighters Double Quartet" together with Matthias Schubert, Bruno Leicht, and Claudio Puntin. In addition the "Axel Dörner Quartet" was initiated (with Frank Gratkowski, Hans Schneider and Martin Blume). With saxophonist Matthias Petzold. he participated on the albums Lifelines and Psalmen Und Lobgesänge.

Dörner has resided in Berlin since 1994, and occurs in the most diverse settings like "The London Jazz Composers Orchestra" and with "Hedros" (together with Mats Gustafsson, Günter Christmann, Barry Guy and others). Since then he has contributed on more than 50 album recordings.

Dörner is distinguished mainly by his versatility. He bouth play the more traditional Bebop, just like he fits in to classic Free Jazz or electronic music. He playd with Otomo Yoshihide at the Donaueschinger Musiktage in 2005. Dörner play both solo concerts and collaborates with his trio "TOOT" (together with Phil Minton and Thomas Lehn) and "Die Anreicherung" with Christian Lillinger, Håvard Wiik and Jan Roder, and in Ken Vandermarks "Territory-Band". Dörner is an integral part of the Berlin scene of experimental new improvisational music. Dörner was given special attention for his interpretation of all compositions by Thelonious Monk, with the pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach and his own band "Die Enttäuschung" released on a three CD album (Monks Casino, Complete 2005)."-Wikipedia
