Tobias Meinhart - Natural Perception (with Ingrid Jensen) Short Info

Natural Perception is Tobias Meinhart’s debut album for ENJA Records. After spending five years living and playing in New York City, the saxophonist has compiled a series of original compositions that he feels represent his personal exploration of the spiritual power of music.

The concept of the album was heavily inspired by Alejandro Jodorowski’s book, The Spiritual Journey, and especially the mental and emotional state that Jodorowski describes as “Empty mind, full heart.” To make a performance of such proportions possible, Tobias put together a band with whom he feels completely free, and thus capable of reaching a level of playing that is transcendent.

Along with Ingrid Jensen, Yago Vasquez, Phil Donkin and Jesse Simpson, Tobias explores a wide range of styles and moods, culminating in a singular, captivating body of work.
Recently, the band was invited to the German consulate in New York, where they played a sold-out performance. They will release Natural Perception and play an extended tour in Europe in autumn 2015.

Personnel: Tobias Meinhart – tenor & soprano saxophones, Ingrid Jensen – trumpet, effects, Yago Vazquez – piano, rhodes, Phil Donkin – bass, and Jesse Simpson – drums.
