The five musicians from Bulgaria, the U.S.A. Germany, Turkey and Switzerland originally met to study odd-time rhythms. From that came a gold mine that constantly yields new ideas and musical impulses.
Gary Barone’s Orientet plays world jazz that combines the old music of Turkey and Bulgaria with jazz and improvisation elements. With attention to the fine details, the quintet plays a kind chamber music that is very entertaining. The musical focus is on listening, alert interplay and communication.
The program features traditional Oriental pieces alternating with new compositions of Gary Barone.
