A quest for musical spirituality in the twenty tens. Four young musicians transform their musical faith into C.A.R. They have developed a trip-like melange of jazz and electronics, improvisation and experimentation, science fiction and film noir, krautrock and cyberpunk. Gleaming energy, kaleidoscopic thoughtfulness, subtle finesse and an undeniable love for the beat — capitalization of an intoxicating mix: C.A.R.
This is C.A.R.:
Founded in 2011 by Johannes Klingebiel and Kenn Hartwig in Cologne, Germany, C.A.R. was originally a quintet playing wild experimental jazz with a pop approach. They eventually kicked the guitar and found their strength to be a subtly flowing melange of kraut-like arrangements infused with electronic and jazz sounds. Featuring drums, double bass, a wurlitzer stage piano, korg and oberheim synthesizers as well as an alto saxophone heavily altered by electronic effect devices, their tunes leave a lot of space for improvisation, but not in classical jazz way with one soloist dominating the music, but always as a delicate web of sound which has a potential to take their audience on an enticing trip.
