Godse’s program for September 25 will remind listeners of Coltrane’s remarkable pupil Albert Ayler.
Godse, led by Sergey Khramtsevich, are a young band that have brought the 1970s new wave movement with its synthesis of avant-jazz, funk and post-punk to Russia. Despite their radical approach, Godse are not only popular with the younger audience from Dich Bar or GAZ-21 in Saint Petersburg, but also with the more sophisticated listeners at Alexey Kozlov Club and Leo Fest—supported by the cult label Leo Records. Godse are open to collaborations and have played with Christoph Erb, Luis Lopes, Fred Lonberg-Holm and Michael Zerang among other masters of improvisation. Every Godse concert is an amazing journey to the world of intuitive sound.
