Unfortunately, The Omniversals‘ Big Blow-Out with jazz legend Gunter Hampel, originally programmed for May 23, has been postponed to a later date. We’ll keep you informed about further developments on this page.
“You cannot learn Gunter’s music at any school, real life is his teacher“
– Anthony Braxton
The legendary jazz composer, bandleader, vibraphonist, bass clarinetist, flutist, baritone saxophonist Gunter Hampel is one of the most influential musicians, composers and pioneers of the world wide jazz evolution. He is the major investigator of the European jazz movement since 1958, and when he moved to New York in 1969, the album „The 8th of July 1969″ with Gunter Hampel – Anthony Braxton – Jeanne Lee – Willem Breuker – Steve McCall formed a new jazz era as a timeless new model for future jazz to come and still stands out today as a new way of improvising even beyond free jazz.
