Gemini Gemini - Jamaaladeen Tacuma & Wolfgang Puschnig

Kulturtreff Altes Kino StFlorian, Wiener Strasse 8, 4490, Markt Sankt Florian, Oberosterreich

Wolfgang Puschnig Jamaaladeen Tacuma Reinhardt Winkler

Gemini-Gemini wurde nach einer Idee von Jamaaladeen Tacuma in den Neunzigerjahren gegründet. Nachdem Tacuma und Puschnig in einigen Projekten zusammengearbeitet hatten, beschlossen sie, den musikalischen Ausdruck auf die grundlegende Form des Duos zu reduzieren und nur mit Bass und Saxophon zu arbeiten. Nach einigen Tourneen beschlossen sie einen Drummer hinzuzufügen um die Energetik etwas zu erweitern. Sie spielten mit Musikern aus Philadelphia, zuerst mit Dennis Alston und später noch mit Adam Guth quer durch Europa verschiedene Programme aus eigener Feder und eines mit Kompositionen von Th. Monk. Dies ist auf drei CDs dokumentiert: „Gemini-Gemini“, „The Flavours Of Th.Monk“ und „Journey Into The Gemini Territory“ Nach vielen unterschiedlichen Projekten (einzeln wie auch gemeinsam) waren sie einige Jahre später nochmals im Duo unterwegs. Jetzt gibt es eine Reminiszenz an diese gemeinsamen Zeiten mit Reinhardt Winkler an den Drums, ein Musiker der sie auch schon bei anderen Unternehmungen unterstützte.

„Gemini-Gemini“ steht für die Sternzeichen der Protagonisten, das + für den Drummer.

Muku - Musik Kultur, Lederergasse 5, 6380 , Sankt Johann in Tirol, Austria

Fetter funkiger E-Bass und Jazzband sind ja nichts Ungewöhnliches, deren Kombination mit alpinen Blasmusiken – wie in Alpine Aspects – oder mit fernöstlichen Musikkulturen – wie in Red Sun & Samul Nori – klangen jedoch schon einzigartig. Jamaaladeen Tacuma und Wolfgang Puschnig betrieben diese Projekte einst gemeinsam und sehr erfolgreich. Im Duoformat mit E-Bass und Saxophon reduzierte man seit den späten Neunzigerjahren den musikalischen Ausdruck auf die grundlegende Form des Duos, Gemini Gemini veröffentlichte seither immerhin drei großartige CDs. Eine extended version dieses Duos erinnert nun an die gemeinsamen fulminanten Lausbubenstreiche der beiden Weltenbummler, mit dem jüngeren Reinhardt Winkler an den Drums noch um eine Spur grooviger!

EARSHOT JAZZThe biggest, baddest bassist in jazz is accompanied by saxophonist legend Gary Bartz — “one of the very best who ever picked up the instrument” (Stanley Crouch) — and drummer Ronnie Barrage. The playing of Tacuma, a key figure in four decades of jazz expansion, is marked by “dancing, racing, and singing with clarity unequaled in the realm of bass guitar” (DownBeat).
