“Uroš Perić and Austria’s leading jazz trumpeter”, fourth concert from the cycle
Vocalist and pianist Uroš Perić, known for his extraordinary voice, is preparing a cycle of four concerts of the Ljubljana Castle. He has gained a reputation both in Slovenia and abroad with his interpretation of compositions from the golden era of soul, blues and jazz. At the concerts, he will appear with celebrated guests: popular and versatile Slovenian vocalist NUŠKA DRAŠČEK, his own vocal trio THE PEARLETTES, blues harmonica player ROBERT IVAČIČ, and superb Austrian jazz trumpeter THOMASOM GANSCHEM. Uroš Perić, whose busy schedule this year includes appearances in USA, France, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Austria and Poland, will be accompanied at the Ljubljana concerts by his own ensemble The Bluenote Quartet.
A concluding concert of the cycle promises to be a real musical treat, as Uroš Perić will be joined by unique Austrian trumpeter Thomas Gansch, a genuine musical aficionado with a broad field of activity. He is regarded as one of the most innovative and creative musicians in Austria, and he is constantly seeking new challenges in his work. He is open to all musical forms and styles, but his greatest love is undoubtedly jazz. He is a founding and active member of the internationally popular ensemble MNOZIL BRASS, which performs regularly throughout the world. From 1998 to 2006, he was a member of the Vienna Art Orchestra led by Mathias Rüegg, and in 2001 he founded his first jazz ensemble Gansch & Roses, which conveys jazz to the audience in a completely unique way, with a healthy dose of humour. In 2002, he received the “Hans Koller Jazz Award”, the highest Austrian award in the area of jazz music, as the best new artist of the year. He performs on an unusual Schagerl trumpet that he designed himself.
You are warmly invited to an evening of first-rate jazz, blues and soul!
