Karparov & Brunn

Salonmusik / Urban World Jazz

The duo KARPAROV & BRUNN plays Urban World Jazz jazz connecting the diverse sound worlds of East and West. Jazz elements, Balkan folk music, and contemporary influecnes are combined to create an extraordinary sound fusion. In 2011 Vladimir Karparov and Andreas Brunn released their CD "East Side Story". Both musicians were awarded the Studio Jazz Prize by the Berlin Cultural Senate.
The talented Bulgarian saxophonist Vladimir Karparov grew up with Balkan tradition and modern jazz. He is considered one of the most promising artists on the Bulgarian jazz scene and has been the recipient of several awards for his work, one highlight including the International Competition for Jazz Musicians in Monaco where he was awarded a prize. Andreas Brunn’s style combines various influences and his seven-stringed guitar creates the impression of a small orchestra with its ability to imitate the sounds of drum and bass! The guitar’s pickup uses stereo, so the bass and melody strings use different channels, creating a particular sound and the impression of different instruments.
Review @ Jazzpodium - Alexander Schmitz. „The shaping of the repetoire is perfect. The sound of Brunn’s 7-string guitar is varied and breathtaking, especially in the bi-ethnic fantastical piece „Sofia”. Karparov, the Bulgarian folk player and international established Jazz academic, also plays to eliminate the musical boundaries of both worlds. They are in end effect the parallel image of one another. There is no better duo out there. …“
Review @ HIFISTATEMENT NETMAGAZINE, by Hans-Jürgen Schaal: “They may have been only two musicians but you would never have known. In fact, Karparov’s saxophone is able to reach almost every kind of sound, even a walking bass, and with his 7-string guitar Brunn spins a web of solo, chords, bass, percussion and scales. You really have the sensation that you could listen to these songs forever. It is no surprise that they won the “Berliner Studiopreis Jazz”.”
