[chuck] in Art, Berlin Jazz Festival, Nik Bärtsch's Ronin, zen-funk

This is a clip of Nik Bärtsch's Ronin live at the 2006 Berlin Jazz Festival. The Swiss pianist and his talented quintet play an entrancing brand of minimalist, ethnic jazz that has been termed "Zen funk". Additional videos and music clips can be found here. Nik Bärtsch has been getting a lot of play in my lab this summer. [NOTE: Yes, he is palm muting the piano].
