Das Vibenbass Das Vibenbass

From Seattle to New York to Berlin, audiences have been fascinated by the musical sound of Das Vibenbass. The group has independently released four full-length records, all of which have garnered tremendous support from the indie jazz community. They have sustained numerous spots atop Seattle’s critically acclaimed KEXP 90.3 jazz chart, as well a prestigious nomination, alongside Wayne Horvitz, for Best Jazz/Experimental act in the Seattle Weekly’s Best of 2006. Constant tours of the United States, Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic have spawned a devoted fan base whose discriminating tastes welcome only the best into clubs. Venues include Seattle’s Triple Door, Hamburg’s Birdland and Pianos in New York.

DVB has a knack of stunning its audiences with their precise, uncompromising timbre. Geoff Larson and JC Bockman structure the groups’ prime sensibility with flooding bass and raucous drums. Josh Clifford lends his versatile tenor saxophone to passages that require both ferocity and elegance, while Justin Sorensen assertively haunts the sound with his contemporary approach on the vibraphone.

Over the past year Das has shifted its musical ideals and finds their focus on compositionally based instrumental songwriting. It has seen them become much more lyrically grounded with the ability to paint giant canvases of sound. Imagine a movie score being created on stage with the ability to aurally induce strong emotions in its audiences

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
