The "Linntett" is the sextet of baritone saxophonist and composer Kira Linn.
After releasing two modern jazz albums (2017 "Nature", Double Moon Records, 2020 "A Traveller's Tale", Laika Records), the band is taking a different musical path.
For the new program, Kira Linn has been inspired by electronic and pop music. They play jazz music with elements of neo-soul, indie and avant-garde pop. In doing so, the Linntet combines the acoustic sound of alto, tenor and baritone saxophone with the electronic sound of electric bass, synthesizers and Rhodes and electronic effects.
Through the multi-layered arrangements and expressive improvisations, the jazz background is recognizable. In addition, pulsating beats and synthetic sound clouds take the listener on a musical journey through different emotional worlds.
For the first time, Kira Linn uses her voice as a sonic element and lyrics as another stylistic device.
The Linntett tours regularly and has already played more than 40 concerts. The new album "Illusion" will be released later this year.
