Klaus Bru

German born Klaus Bru (Ść° = pronounced Kaa) is one of only a few saxophonists performing exclusively on the rare C-Melody and C-Soprano saxes -- instruments which were extremely popular in the 1920’s. These antiquities sound utterly contemporary in Bru’s hands, particularly when he furnishes them with electronic treatment.

His artistic output is characterized by its variety: He brings in the folk music of the world (typically from Eastern Europe and Turkey), Avant-garde ridden improvisation concepts, air sounds and electronic noises, strange meters and odd tempos, plus -- last but not least -- singable melodies over the moving chords of jazz standards or his own compositions.
