International Ensemble Focusyear Band 21 From Basel Presents Multi-faceted Album 'Bosque' - Out on Neuklang Records 4/29
(Published: April 17, 2021)

The Focusyear Band 21 is an international group of students with an exciting new project. These musicians include: Vocalist Tatjana Nova (from Dresden by way of Moscow); saxophonists Joshua Schofield (England) and Gianni Gagliardi (Spain); trumpeters/flugelhornists/valve trombonists Yakiv Tsvietinskyi (Ukraine) and Sebastián Greschuk (Argentina); pianist Lorenzo Vitolo (Italy); bassist Ethan Cohn (New York, by way of Montreal); and drummer Áron Tálas (Hungary). Ensemble members were selected from a large number of applications.

As heard in the music, the Focusyear Band 21 found its own sound, with an emphasis on improvisational risk-taking. After many intensive weeks with prominent instructors, the eight young musicians crafted a selection of original compositions created throughout the year. They are interactive, sonically aware and original, devoted to discovering - and advancing - the language of jazz.

THE FOCUSYEAR AT JAZZCAMPUS BASEL

The Focusyear is a one-year course featuring an internationally-curated ensemble of up to eight musicians, mentored by recognized masters of the international jazz scene. In 2020/21 the annually- changing jury of experts consisted of Kurt Rosenwinkel, Guillermo Klein, Malcolm Braff, Jorge Rossy, David Virelles, Lionel Loueke, Django Bates, Ethan Iverson, Ben van Gelder, Jeff Ballard, Linda May Han Oh, Ingrid Jensen, Luciana Souza, Marilyn Mazur and Miguel Zenon.

Selected students receive a full scholarship to cover tuition and living expenses.

Under the artistic direction of Austrian guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel, the ensemble develops concert programs throughout the year and records an album, which is produced in the school's own recording studio. The band is regularly booked for performances at the Jazzcampus Club. A club tour is organized for the spring and a festival tour for the summer. [Please note COVID-related cancellations.]

Now in its sixth year, Focusyear again invites all instrumentalists, singers, composers to apply for this scholarship, regardless of their formal training or age.
