With double bass, saxophone, guitar, synthesizers and drums District 5 distill an ultra-contemporary interpretation of jazz from various musical influences. Ambient soundscapes meet the unbridled energy of free improvisation, stumbling grooves, electronics or quotes from post-rock, and sometimes even within the same piece. With this openness, they have played their way to the top of the young Zurich jazz scene in recent years. Most recently, District 5 saxophonist Tapiwa Svosve caused open mouths as support for Moor Mother at the Kaserne, and that's why we're very happy that he's coming back with a full band to present the album to be released on "Tree in a Field" in 2022 as part of the Jazz Festival.
