Info for Here and Now
The combination of tenor saxophone and trumpet has a long tradition in jazz. In order to explore the sound of these two instruments as purely as possible, this instrumentation does without "harmonic accompaniment" by piano or guitar. The sound is reduced to the four voices of trumpet, saxophone, double bass and drums and offers a special charm and open sound through its simplicity. The compositions are largely penned by Nösig and Erian and reflect the approach to improvised music of the two, who are united not only by their Carinthian origins, but also by the years they spent studying together in Holland. The styles range from free improvisation to bop to folk-inspired pieces and rubato parts. While the quartet ENJ looked backwards in their first album production "The One's Before Us", the current production deals with the present, i.e. with the here and now.
