Fly Magic is the signature band of German saxophonist Timo Vollbrecht. Together with a who’s who of Brooklyn-centric stars, Fly Magic will perform music from their new album “Faces in Places,” in which each song is inspired by a human encounter that took place in different countries all over the world. Through a confluence of influences, this ensemble tells a story that transcends the limitation of musical genre. Combining elements from jazz, post-rock, experimental and folk, their music is as visual as it is sonically beautiful.
