Saso Popovski Saso Popovski

The music of Saso Popovski is music of pure lines, concluded structures and lush imagination. Rhythmically and also melodically, his music alludes to Oriental patterns, which makes it a bit mystical. But there is nothing hermetically in it, as some of these kind of music excursions to Orient can be... Popovski organizes his compositions around a beautifully derived, clear, appealing melodious line, which is unmistakably supported by a bass player with a velvet sound and a drummer with consistent, concentrated rhythmization. Popovski finely enhance the basic river-like melody, carefully meanders through its possible by-paths and streams, but never loses the basic thread. With its strong suggestiveness - thanks to the repetitiveness of certain motifs - Popovski's music has dreamlike and cinematic effects. One another thing to be stressed is the coherence of members' musicianship and the very sound of trio - which is smoothed and crystal clear, but at the same time it does not work artificially; instead, it is completely organic and “present”. – Mario Baletic Cerkno Jazz Festival

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
