British saxophonist Jasmine Myra plays her only German concert in Berlin


Wenn ein Instrument in den letzten Jahren seine Renaissance feierte, dann das Saxofon. Was auch an herausragenden Musiker:innen wie Jasmine Myra lag, die am 6. April 2023 ins Berliner Gretchen kommt. Die Komponistin aus Leeds veröffentlichte 2022 ihr Debüt »Horizons« beim britischen Label Gondwana Records – was folgte, waren Lobeshymnen nicht nur von Jazzkennern.

The saxophone, fluffily played

Because Jasmine Myra combines jazz with an electronic substructure and modern compositions on the eight tracks. Accordingly, »Horizons« is characterised by its cinematic sound, although every melody drifts along easily, everything remains so casual and relaxed. The violin alone in »Words Left Unspoken« carries the listener into other worlds. And again and again the discreet saxophone of Myra. Seldom has anyone played this instrument so finely, so precisely and fluffily. What the artist and composer will show at her one and only show in Germany in April.
