Event description

Description

BRUNO RÅBERG is an internationally renowned bass player and composer. Since coming to the US from his native Sweden he has made nine recordings as a leader, about 30 as a sideman, and has performed/recorded with numerous world-class artists including George Garzone, Sam Rivers, Donny McCaslin, Kenny Werner, Chris Cheek, Ben Monder, Ted Poor, David Gilmore, Mick Goodrick, Bruce Barth, Jim Black, Matt Wilson. Råberg has toured throughout Europe, USA, Japan, Africa, India and Central America. He has lead several groups of his own: the Lifelines Quartet with Chris Cheek, Ben Monder, and Ted Poor; and his current Triloka Ensemble featuring Mike Block, Layth Sidiq and others. Råberg is a senior professor at Berklee College of Music in Boston and has traveled as a clinician/performer to Italy, Brazil, Japan, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Mexico.

The Triloka Ensemble, which features Råberg’s compositions for strings, shows the unique, intimate and creative musical language he has developed. The music is personal, evocative and truly original and it uses rhythmic and melodic structures from traditional Carnatic (S. Indian) music. Triloka means “three realms” and could be an analogy to the overall influences on this recording which are S. Indian music, jazz improvisation and classical. The result is compelling music that showcases Råberg’s compositional prowess and his musical companions’ inventiveness, musicality and accomplished solo work.

What the critics say about the Triloka – Three Realms CD

“Lush orchestral waves and a quietly mesmerizing solo from Råberg introduce "Triloka—Three Realms….Råberg's compositional élan—the deft weaving of multiple voices through the prism of classical and folkloric pastures—and the individual freedoms that permeate this contemporary, yet timeless sounding music. Never less than compelling” Ian Patterson – All About Jazz

“Triloka is a captivating album with an almost orchestral flair to it; at times dark and foreboding, yet at other times playful and light.” Marithe Van Der Aa – All About Jazz
