“A dark, mysterious realm shot through with rare blasts of pure, white light…” – Clash
Jan Roth released his brilliant debut album L.O.W via cutting edge Berlin based label Sinnbus in the Summer of 2013, and he’s about to round off 2014 with his latest EP, Jan Roth Quartett Live.
Jan Roth’s video for album track ‘Einundzwanzig’ is also available to watch now on the Sinnbus YouTube channel.
You can also download ‘Kleine Freiheit’ for free from the Sinnbus Soundcloud page.
Since the release of his debut album L.O.W., the fond tribute to the sunny side of melancholy, Jan has had many irons in the fire. Between jazz, classical, pop and electronic music, Roth strolls back and forth around the keyboard, only looking to see if there are any more spaces between the black and white keys.
The tracks on this Live EP were recorded as a quartet in Erfurt’s technological museum and the music is a great counterpart to the pleasantly quirky surroundings of the location. Along with two tracks taken from L.O.W., Roth presents for the first time the unreleased track ‘März’. In its reworked and broken-up form, the music has evolved and highlights an inner, inherent beauty when performed live.
Jan Roth Quartett Live is released 8th December 2014 via Sinnbus.
