Munich. On February 28 and March 20, 2016, the BMW Welt Jazz Award will present the final two of a total of six free Sunday matinees at the Double Cone of BMW Welt. Featuring Latham-Carniaux-Egan: Constellations and Indra Rios-Moore, both hailing from the USA, this event will showcase two top acts of the international jazz scene. Following the final matinee, a panel of expert jurors will select two of a total of six ensembles to perform at the grand finale on May 7, 2016, at the auditorium of BMW Welt.

 

Latham-Carniaux-Egan will dedicate their concert on February 28 to Icelander Björk, whose inimitable voice and unconventional performances made her into her country’s most famous musician and generated fans from outside the pop music scene worldwide. Among them is 54-year old American drummer Karl Latham, who was joined by bassist Mark Egan, trumpet player Ryan Carniaux and keyboarder Nick Rolfe to form a quartet and to interpret and record an entire album of songs written by Björk. “Constellations” brings together Björk’s unique musical cosmos and her typical timbre creating a broad range of synthetic sounds reminiscent of Japanese Isao Tomita or Miles Davis’ electric bands.

 

For singer Indra Rios-Moore, who grew up in New York as the daughter of a Puerto-Rican social worker and jazz bassist Don Moore, her new album “Heartland” is an exploration of her roots. With her reduced retro sound, she refers to icons of the pop and rock world such as David Bowie or Pink Floyd. She currently lives in Denmark with saxophone player Benjamin Traerup, but for the recordings under the direction of star producer Larry Klein she made her way back to the USA. This quartet, winner of the Danish Music Award 2012, is completed with bassist Thomas Sejthen and guitarist Uffe Stephen and will perform on March 20 at BMW Welt.

About BMW’s Cultural Commitment

For more than 40 years now, the BMW Group has initiated and engaged in over 100 cultural cooperations worldwide. The company places the main focus of its long-term commitment on modern and contemporary art, jazz and classical music as well as architecture and design. In 1972, three large-scale paintings were created by the artist Gerhard Richter specifically for the foyer of the BMW Group's Munich headquarters. Since then, artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Olafur Eliasson, Jeff Koons, Zubin Metha, Daniel Barenboim and Anna Netrebko have co-operated with BMW. The company has also commissioned famous architects such as Karl Schwanzer, Zaha Hadid and Coop Himmelb(l)au to design important corporate buildings and plants. In 2011, the BMW Guggenheim Lab, a global initiative of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, the Guggenheim Museum and the BMW Group celebrated its world premiere in New York. The BMW Group takes absolute creative freedom in all its cultural activities – as this initiative is as essential for producing groundbreaking artistic work as it is for major innovations in a successful business.
