Timo Vollbrecht Fly Magic

Country: Germany

Based in Brooklyn, rooted in Berlin, focusing on composed and improvised music: Timo Vollbrecht is what the New York City Jazz Record calls a “luminously-fine” saxophonist-bandleader, whose music is “blessed with rhythmic fluidity and intricate twists.” Acclaimed for his “warm blanket of sound” (JazzThing), A musical omnivore, he organically combines jazz with elements of post-rock, indie, new music, experimental, and instrumental songwriting.

FLY MAGIC is Vollbrecht’s signature ensemble. The band has released two albums, tours worldwide and appears at major festivals in Europe, the US, Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and South America. It comprises four spectacular improvisers that emerge from the scenes of New York and Berlin.

It is their love for the element of surprise and their search for the paths less traveled that keep this music at the cutting edge of contemporary improvised music.

The concert will be held with the support of the Goethe-Institut in Ukraine.
