One-Eyed Daruma

«With the virtuosity and furiosity of an unfulfilled wish»

Otis Sandsjö SaxophonLukas Traxel BassMoritz Baumgärtner Drum Kit
With One Eyed Daruma – born out of a Carte Blanche project at Moods – Swiss double bass player Lukas Traxel (Kurt Rosenwinkel, Ralph Alessi, Lionel Loueke) presents his own compositions for the first time and since March this year the long-awaited record of the same name is finally here. In the Swedish-Swiss-German trio with saxophonist Otis Sandsjö (Y-Otis, Speak Low, Petter Eldh) and drummer Moritz Baumgartner (Melt Trio, Tau 5) the eyeless Daruma awakens. Painting one eye on the Japanese lucky charm stands for a wish, the second eye for its fulfillment. Traxel's Daruma remains one-eyed - the energy of the unfulfilled wish slumbers in the compositions of the double bassist, which drift along with virtuosity-furiosity as well as longingly to melancholically and sprout from the intersection of John Coltrane, ADHD and Agnes Martin. The band functions as a collective in which each of the three exceptional musicians steers the concert in unexpected directions.
