Info zu Fearless Friday

Mit "Fearless Friday", seinem sechsten Album, präsentiert der Pianist Omer Klein sowohl seine neuesten Kompositionen als auch das neue Line-Up seines Trios mit Bassist Haggai Cohen-Milo und Schlagzeuger Amir Bresler, eines der bemerkenswertesten jungen Talente aus Israel. Dieser Personalwechsel Anfang 2014 von Drummer Ziv Ravitz zu Amir Bresler läutet gleichzeitig eine Art Richtungswechsel für das Trio ein. Im Laufe des Jahres tourt das Trio weltweit und Klein stellt seine neue Formation dem internationalen Publikum vor. "The three of us clicked from the first moment. I got very inspired to write new music for this band, and explore new directions", sagt Klein.

Nach einem gemeinsamen Jahr auf Tour und der mit Fug und Recht als magisch zu betitelnden Aufnahmesession in den Bauer Studios Ludwigsburg, ist das Album "Fearless Friday" sowohl grandioser Höhepunkt als auch richtungsweisend für die Zukunft des Künstlers Omer Klein und seines Trios. Das Album enthält neun Originalkompositionen von Klein - die meisten der Stücke sind explizit für diese Produktion entstanden und ein Cover von Duke Ellington's "Azure".

"Das Album ist in vielen Tracks hoch energetisch und der Muskelkater in den Beinen vom rhythmisch-zuckenden 65-minütigen Aktivzuhören wird frei Haus mitgeliefert. Manche Stücke sind aber auch ganz ruhig, wirken durchdacht, durchlebt und geradezu errungen." (Claus Friede, kulturport.de)

The album was chosen as an Editors' Pick for December 2010 in Downbeat Magazine. The Trio performed a successful European tour in September 2011, and recorded a new album in New York in October.
