Nik Bärtsch's Ronin

Meditative zen-funk

  • Nik Bärtsch's Ronin

this event is part of

Jazz Brugge 2020

jazz / pop & rock / world music
Fri 13 Nov 2020
This event is cancelled.

Swiss pianist Nik Bärtsch is a master of reduction and rehearsal. His stripped-down 'zen-funk' initially seems to be unchanging, but if you immerse yourself in it, you’ll find that even minor shifts can have a major effect. A Japanese ronin is a samurai who no longer serves a master, a fitting symbol for the unique path that Bärtsch and his Ronin are exploring in contemporary jazz. New work by Nik Bärtsch will be released in 2021 by ECM records.

Crazy about jazz or simply curious to hear a bit more? With a day pass for 3 concerts per festival day, you can enjoy all the forms of jazz that Jazz Bruges has to offer AND save money!
