Nenad Vasilic

Allgemeine Information

Geburtsland: 

Musical brilliance and lived inspiration: there is no other quite like him-a double bass player, a composer, an arranger and a complete rhythm section refined and rolled into one person: Nenad Vasilić has long been at the forefront of European jazz and is highly acclaimed throughout the continent. Born in Nis, Serbia, he grew up surrounded by a rich tradition of Balkan folklore. Traditional music, Roma music and a love of jazz were strong influences in his younger years, when he was playing mainly piano and bass guitar. From sixteen onwards, he played throughout the local jazz scene and was considered one of the most talented double bass players. After jazz studies in Graz, he moved to Vienna and has since been one of the most sought-after contrabassists.

Pressestimmen

This music is quite an education. There's power in music of one's homeland. Somehow, it transcends all opinions, criticisms, language and cultural limitations.


Denai Burbank, Jazz Review

There's a palpable sense of joy in the face of great sorrow, optimism despite a series of crushing defeats, and a real beauty that can be terrible and magnificent simultaneously.

Bill Barton, All About Jazz
