Timo Vollbrecht Showcasing Originals at the Indaba Loft

As a musician it is a vital skill to be able to process personal and musical experiences in order to channel them into performance. Saxophonist and Indaba Artist in Residence Timo Vollbrecht recently brought his New York Group–Keisuke Matsuno, Sam Anning, and Jason Berger–to the Indaba Loft on Bowery to showcase his mastery of this essential element to modern jazz.

Timo’s original composition “Tale of Jordan” which is featured prominently (1:00-4:03) was composed before a tour through the Middle East with his band. The composition, which has ample space for improvisation, grew throughout these performances and has gained a certain mystique which encapsulates the experiences of the tour.

Please watch, enjoy, and look forward to Timo’s future performances around the world!
