IBRAHIM ELECTRIC INTERACTIVE QUIZ RELEASE CONCERT AND YOU’RE INVITED

During the last couple of years IBRAHIM ELECTRIC has been one of the most popular European jazz groups… These 3 personal instrumentalists have – besides the popularity with this group – made a name for themselves as some of the most striking on their respective instruments in Scandinavia

The Danish trio IBRAHIM ELECTRIC never disappoints.
Their quirky – provocative – extroverted – original music sticks its fingers into just about every musical cookie jar… and sends cascades of pearls from the speakers.

IBRAHIM ELECTRIC’s style is not for the pedantic. There are elements of old fashioned soul/jazz – AFRObeat – 60’s acid-power-beat – and of course the trio’s trademark: the fast, almost-punk passages in which the three musicians merge into one playful organism.

Each of the band-members possess an extremely high level of musical ENERGY, and they have a mutual love for the pure energy in the music… This has made this unit extraordinary!

Whether Niclas is playing a guitar solo in the spirit of Ali Farka Toure…Jeppe is playing a solo that leads your mind to the Hammond-icons of the 1960’s…or Stefan is playing a drum-solo with avantgarde elements, the one thing that overshines it all, is their love for playing and performing, and the sheer intensity of their expression!

This trio is a fantastic live experience ! An experience which has been delivered in following countries so far: USA – Canada – Morocco – Brazil – Denmark – England – Ireland – Scotland – Poland – Sweden – Norway – Finland – France – Germany – Lithuania – Latvia – Estonia – Netherlands – China – Korea – Thailand !

The Ibrahim Electric Interactive Release Concert is scheduled for Saturday, 18 April at 20.00 hrs (8pm) CET or 2pm EST. For more information visit musicgems.live

BLICHER & HEMMER ARE HOSTING STEVE GADD’S 75th BIRTHDAY PARTY AND YOU’RE INVITED

Celebrate With Steve! Bandmates Stream Live Concert From Nordsø Records, Copenhagen —

Copenhagen, Denmark: Steve Gadd, one of the greatest drummers in music history, will be celebrating his 75th birthday on Thursday 9 April. In honor of this occasion, Blicher Hemmer Gadd, the renowned jazz trio who have starred on four album releases (three in cooperation with Brinkmann Audio), will celebrate in a very special way. Like most of us, these brilliant musicians have been “grounded” but miss performing together and sharing their music with audiences around the world. Band leader Michael Blicher has found a solution.

In cooperation with Brinkmann Audio and Nordsø Records, bandmates Michael Blicher and Dan Hemmer will broadcast a live-streamed birthday concert for Steve and their many fans. Drummer & percussionist Eddi Jarl, a great friend of the band who often joins them on stage playing percussion, will take the place behind the drum kit. Michael, Dan and Eddi will be playing music from all Blicher Hemmer Gadd albums while Steve, celebrating in Phoenix with his family, will deliver a special message to his fans.

The performance venue for the live-stream will be Nordsø Records, a boutique pressing plant in Copenhagen, Denmark. At Nordsø Records a crew of record- and art collectors are focusing on high quality record manufacturing.

Although live-streaming is becoming ubiquitous, the Steve Gadd Birthday Concert will distinguish itself through superior sonics and dynamic cinematography. Thomas Vang from The Village Recording will be in charge of sound quality. The Village Recording is one of Europe’s finest studios and has produced many landmark recordings for such prominent artists as Oscar Petersen and Roger Waters. The concert will be live-streamed on YouTube and Facebook. Following the live-stream, the concert will be available in MQA on TIDAL Masters: an MQA-enabled Brinkmann Audio Nyquist MK II Streaming DAC will also be used for playback monitoring during the concert.

Blicher Hemmer Gadd’s “Special 33” album, the trio’s first partnership with Brinkmann Audio and Nordsø Records, sold out before its release in 2019. To celebrate Steve’s birthday, a limited-edition, MQA digital version of this album, will coincide with the concert, to be released on 9 April and made available for 33 days.

The event will be the start of the Music Gems Live series of online concerts streamed from Nordsø Records and The Village Recording in cooperation with Brinkmann Audio.

The Steve Gadd Birthday Concert is scheduled for Thursday, 9 April at 21.00 hrs (9pm) CET or 3pm EST. For more information visit musicgems.live

Please join Blicher Hemmer Gadd for an evening of friendship, fun and unforgettable music.
