    Jure Pukl, one of Slovenia’s most prominent and celebrated saxophone players (a Prešeren Fund Award laureate), lived and worked in New York for nine years and recorded numerous acclaimed albums (according to The Guardian’s John Fordham, he is “a rising star of the creative new generation”). Just before the pandemic, Pukl played the US (Winter Jazz Festival) and Europe with an all-star quartet featuring slightly different personnel (here, vibraphonist J. Ross has been replaced by P. Evans).

    As a reconfigured line-up, the AnoRoK quartet (an anagram of ‘korona’) returns with its first post-epidemic tour and music that “draws inspiration from the chaos and unrest in present-day sociopolitical situation. In its core, it is based on jazz, improvisation, and contemporary classical music. Enhanced by electronic sounds that mirror the sonic realm we are currently living in, it is a tribute to Earth and us, its inhabitants.”

    Due to the cancellation of his European tour Ben LaMar Gay will not perform at the 64th Ljubljana Jazz Festival.
