Nobody plays the Saxophone quite like Norwegian Jan Garbarek. His haunting sound has become an unmistakable trademark from collaborations with Keith Jarrett and Zakir Hussain, to best-selling releases on the iconic ECM label or with the Gregorian chants of the Hilliard Ensemble.Nothing can prepare you for the sheer beauty and power of his saxophone tone: pure, keening, sharp edged and crystalline. Hearing it in the context of his live group is quintessential Garbarek - hymnal and sparse, playful and serious, immersed and exceptionally open yet intense. He is joined by his keyboardist of many years, Rainer Brüninghaus, the e-bassist from Brazil, Yuri Daniel and master drummer Trilok Gurtu from India.WHEN: 13th July - 7.30pmWHERE: Festival Theatre Tickets priced £27-£38.50 incl. £2.50 booking fee are on sale now from www.tinyurl.com/JanEJBF19 or in person/phone via The Hub - Edinburgh's Festival Centre (0131 473 2000)
