Konzert: in der Künstlervereinigung MAERZ
„What makes IgorÂ´s music and playing so unique is its complexity. There is a quality to his playing and compositions that has absorbed the rich traditions of jazz music in this country but has also added something new and unidentifiable. His compositions flow with ease and vitality off odd time signatures. There is also darkness and a mystery to his sound that is all his own. No one else sounds like that – and thatÂ´s one of the highest compliments you can give to a jazz musician. The complex emotions that feed the sounds of great artists in the jazz tradition have to do with the experience of enormous conflicts. You canÂ´t fake that quality, and Igor Lumpert has it.“ Solches sagt Jane Ira Bloom, Saxofonistin und Grammy-Gewinnerin, über den in New York als Partner von John Abercrombie, Reggie Workman, Ben Monder, Matt Brewer, Damion Reid, Robert Glasper, Boris Kozlov, Sonny Simmons u.a. wirkenden Brucknerkonservatoriums-Absolventen.
