Bass clarinet player Ziv Taubenfeld’s new band is rooted in Amsterdam’s creative music community. Ancient cultures and jazz pioneers inspire the graphic scores, vibrant grooves and improvisations. Full Sun was founded by Ziv Taubenfeld with Amsterdam’s improvised music scene as its point of departure.
Stories of ancient Natufians and modern culture beings resonate in its improvisations and compositions. The ensemble translates graphic scores into melodies, conduction, grooves and dedications to influential jazz artists John Tchicai, Jemeel Moondoc and Sunny Murray.
