Moving on Music is thrilled to present the debut UK/Ireland performance from the Dave Gisler Trio feat. Jaimie Branch.

Switzerland’s Dave Gisler is a free-thinking force in contemporary jazz with a unique approach to the electric guitar. Joined by Raffaele Bossard (bass) and Lionel Friedli (drums), the Dave Gisler Trio veers effortlessly between punchy rock sensibilities and calmer worlds. The result is a brew of collective and distinct sounds, mixed with otherworldly textures.

Jaimie Branch is a Chicago-born-Brooklyn-based artist, shaking up the world of improvisation and composition.  Through her musical practice, Branch is particularly interested in extending and expanding the limitations of the trumpet and the musical language of free jazz, with a personal focus on social justice and gender and racial equality.
Her classical training and “unique voice capable of transforming every ensemble of which she is a part” (Jazz Right Now) has contributed to a wide range of projects not only in jazz but also punk, noise, indie rock, electronic and hip-hop. Branch has released three albums on Chicago’s acclaimed International Anthem Recordings, amassing a worldwide fanbase along the way.

In 2019, these kindred spirits combined for a series of live performances leading to the release of the ‘Zurich Concert’ album on Intakt Records in 2020. We are delighted to welcome this remarkable outfit to Belfast for what promises to be an incredible night of music.

“An inspired match, as both Gisler and Branch combine a thorough grounding in jazz with a penchant for punk attitude and alternative energies. There’s mellow moments of stoner vibes and a heavy free-form bash not unlike Peter Brötzmann’s Full Blast in full flight. If you’re pining for the glorious and unpredictable joy of live performance, give this one a try!” – Jazzwise

“furious and impassioned, dejected and chaotic – Branch’s bursts of searing trumpet are a unifying narrative force.”Guardian
