The Jam Session and Southampton Arts Center
's latest collaboration will bring The Martin Fabricius Group featuring Steve Swallow to Live from SAC
on Saturday, April 7 at 7 p.m. The evening will feature Martin Fabricius on vibraphone, Brad Shepik on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Claes Brondal on drums.
Fabricius is a Danish vibraphonist and film composer. His music has been described by many as image creating, story telling, beautiful and even healing. The calm melodies and friendly harmonies invites the listener inside the music which at times resembles classical or electronic music. All of this mixed with intriguing rhythms and improvisation makes the end result both calm and energetic, grand and intimate.
Fabricius graduated Suma Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music with a major in film scoring in 1996. While at Berklee, Martin studied the vibraphone with multi Grammy award winner Gary Burton. His first album as a bandleader and vibraphonist, When Sharks Bite
(2008), was hailed by JazzNYT
as one of the 10 best Danish albums that year. Since then the trio has performed all over the world attracting a growing audience of listeners both familiar and new to jazz. Today, Fabricius lives in Copenhagen, Denmark where he teaches percussion, composition, and film scoring when he's not on tour.
"We are very excited to present Martin Fabricius Group with legendary bassist Steve Swallow and guitarist Brad Shepik," said Brondal, Founder of The Jam Session, who curates the series. "The repertoire will reflect original compositions by Mr. Fabricius and Mr. Swallow. The music is part of the Nordic Sound and inspired by the famous ECM recordings."
