Morbu - Jazz Thing Next Generation Vol. 92


Longing and grief, laughter and pleasure - all of this can be found in the music of Jonas Timm and his band, who have come together with an unusual line-up on their debut album "Morbu". Lorenz Heigenhuber and Diego Pinera play bass and drums, nothing out of the ordinary in that respect, but there are three harmony instruments on board with the bandleader and pianist Jonas Timm, the acoustic guitarist Bertram Burkert and the accordionist Tino Derado.

The dancing lightness in the music of Timm's band stems from his passion for Latin American music. "I've always been attracted to Latin American styles," he said with a shrug. "On the one hand, I want to combine them with fat, heavy grooves and have a very light and fragile melody at the same time. Of course, three harmony instruments are pretty awesome, but that suits my piano playing. I am not the pianist who constantly plays all over the keyboard, but instead I also like to leave room for others and sometimes just don't play but instead listen to the others."

The interconnectedness of the five musicians results in an ensemble performance in which interplay is clearly in the foreground. Brilliant solos are rather inconspicuous, and the complex rhythm only really stands out when you pay more attention to it. You almost would like to say that these are five friends who play music together. That is at least the credo of Jonas Timm. "The instruments are linked to the personalities of the musicians playing them," he said, delighted about the organically grown coexistence in his band. "I have been connected and friends with all four musicians for a very long time, and I have been playing with Bertram for seven years." This makes "Morbu" - the word comes from Catalan and means something like passionate obsession - a light-footed pleasure.
