"You can not get tired of listening to this wonderful interplay between compositional and improvisational actions and spontaneous reactions ... It seems as clubs Manu Katche in his game the best essences of classical European music, vital American jazz and even forgotten joy of the African continent." (Wolfgang Sandner, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)
Without empathetic tremendously, always grooving drums arts Manu Katché would the pop world (and not only) significantly Poorer. Although born in Paris drummer occurred already in the late 1970s with the then living in Paris Brazilian pianist and singer Tania Maria and the jazz pianist Bobby Few, however, in the spotlight of the world public he ran until 1986, when he takes on Peter Gabriel's album "So" was heard. Since Katche has played with countless sizes of French and international music world: Sting, Joni Mitchell, Dire Straits, Simple Minds, Tears For Fears, Joe Satriani, Tracy Chapman, Joan Armatrading, Al DiMeola, Jeff Beck, Tori Amos, Youssou N'Dour , Manu Dibango, Gloria Estefan, Noa, Kassav, Stephan Eicher, Nigel Kennedy and more ... Even this extremely abridged excerpt from the list of artists who Katche escorted in and since the mid-80s, is the one its near universal versatility as a drummer, but on the other hand, that he himself has an extremely high standard of quality in the selection of musicians with whom he collaborates.
Particularly intense in all these years was not only Katché cooperation with the pop star Peter Gabriel, Sting and Joni Mitchell, but also those with the Norwegian jazz saxophonist Jan Garbarek. Brought together they had the ECM producer Manfred Eicher, meanwhile, directed the two worked together well for the first time, as Garbarek 1990. For ECM albums "Ragas And Sagas" and "I Took Up The Runes" recorded. In the next twenty years, the way the French and the Norwegian crossed repeatedly. Last in the recordings fOr Garbarek first live album "Dresden", which appeared on ECM of 2009.
Emmanuel 'Manu' Katché was born in 1958 in St. Maur des Fosses, near Paris, the son of immigrants from the Ivory Coast. Before the age of seven learned his first instrument, "enjoyed" it at the request of his mother two years ballet lessons. Since the shy boy among so many girls but not really feeling well, he gave the "Top Dance" after two "endless" years back to and instead began taking piano lessons. For drumming him encouraged, when he was thirteen years old, his grandfather, who is said to have his first drumsticks even himself carved. Less than two years later visited Manu a music school, to get there in the next four years sound classic drum and percussion lessons. Subsequently him a scholarship to the Conservatoire National Supérieure de Musique de Paris was offered, but the Katche beat out to - influenced by plates of Miles Davis and ECM artists such as Garbarek, Keith Jarrett and John Abercrombie - to begin his career as a jazz drummer , His percussion-style denoted Katche himself once as an "amalgam of African rhythm concepts and classical drumming, illuminated by the ad hoc resulting interaction of Jazz".
In 1992, Manu Katche his first and long time only solo album "It's About Time" on, participated at the guest star Peter Gabriel. Then he devoted himself once fourteen years solely its completed activities to accompany other artists and film composer. Until Manfred Eicher him finally asked, record a solo album for ECM: And so Katche 2005 went with Garbarek, Tomasz Stanko, Marcin Wasilewski and Slawomir Kurkiewicz into the studio to record his ECM solo debut "Neighbourhood", for which he both a Jazz Award and the annual prize of the German record critics received. Two years later followed with "Playground" of the second string, in which instead of Garbarek and Stanko their young Norwegian colleagues Trygve Seim and Mathias Eick had time to listen. Guests also had the New York guitarist David Torn on the field again. 2010 has Manu Katche with "Third Round" and a completely new band at ECM in the third round: time supported by the Norwegian saxophonist Tore Brunborg, the British pianist Jason Rebello, super bassist Pino Palladino (in 1992 the way first on Katché Album played had) and guests Jacob Young (guitar) and Kami Lyle (vocals / trumpet).
