Sean Haefeli Trio // Soul-Jazz

In the organizer's words:

Sean Haefeli is at home in both soul and jazz. The American musician, who has been living in Berlin for ten years now, writes strong songs that are deeply rooted in African-American music culture. His fascinating, attractive stage presence is paired with a relaxed nonchalance, his distinctive voice is sometimes reminiscent of the unforgotten poet and singer Gil Scott-Heron. As the singer of the extremely successful Berlin nu-jazz collective Jazzanova, he is in demand worldwide, and in his own trio with bassist Francesco Beccaro and drummer Genius Wesley, he not only shines as a versatile singer and multi-faceted, uniquely talented pianist and keyboardist, but also as a gifted jazz poet. The American poet Kalamu ya Salaam once wrote that Sean Haefeli's lyrics sound "like modern poetry, a cross between Ezra Pound in the metro and spoken word ... He takes unexpected turns, writes lyrics that you have to listen to at least three times to decipher what they are about. Sometimes
it swings, sometimes it grooves, but there's always something in it that moves you emotionally."
