One of the most talented young musicians of Turkey, Bilal Karaman is coming together with Lars Danielsson, one of the most inspiring bassists of the jazz world. Karaman participated to Önder Focan’s Jazz Group workshops and studied flamenko techniques with Doğan Canku, jazz guitar with Donovan Mixon and Wolfgang Muthspiel, Turkish music and fretless guitar with Erkan Oğur and advanced harmony and improvisation with Aydın Esen. He won the Nardis Jazz Guitar Competition in 2009. Collaborating with musicians such as Neşet Ruacan, Aydın Esen, Leon Parker, Jack Gregg, Gustav Lundgren and Ricky Ford in a variety of projects, the guitarist uses modals and melodic motifs, as well as modern harmonies and improvisations in his own compositions. Accompanying Karaman in this concert will be the Swedish contrabass and cello player Lars Danielsson, the founder of Lars Danielsson Quartet in 1980 along with David Liebman who had previously worked with Miles Davis. With this quartet, Danielsson released 10 albums and has given countless performances with famous jazz musicians such as Randy and Michael Brecker, John Scofield, Jack DeJohnette, Mike Stern, Billy Hart and Charles Lloyd.
