Franz Hackl’s  IDO


IDO stands for Idiomo di Omni and means dialect for everybody. Franz Hackl merges ‘Tyrolean Folktunes’ the musical dialect he grew up with, with the music and sounds of New York, the town he calls home for almost 20 years. Music isn't an universal language. Music has as many dialects as the human language. But the  Global Village aka New York makes it possible to develop a universal language. 
In music and living together.
 





Franz Hackl – trumpet, flugelhorn
Trumpeter, Composer, Producer, Artistic Director

Franz Hackl was born in Tyrol, Austria and at the age of eleven he followed in his father’s footsteps by becoming a trumpet soloist; he began to tour internationally. Growing up with traditional Austrian brass music as a soloist with the “Original Tiroler Kaiserjägermusik”, he soon became interested in playing Jazz.
 
He is an alumnus of the Conservatory of the City of Vienna and received a M.S. degree from the Manhattan School of Music where he studied with Lew Soloff. After frequent collaborations with leading international artists in the jazz field, he focused more and more on composition and leading his own projects. His stylistic versatility grew to include works for full orchestra, chamber groups, choral works and multi-media events. He was commissioned to write original music for the “Year of the Mountains” launch event at the United Nations, Trialog @ Hangar 7 (Red Bull), the opening of the Austrian Cultural Forum in New York, as well as composing for numerous other festivals and ensembles such as Tiroler Festspiele, Europ. Forum Alpbach, Klangspuren, Festival der Regionen and the Absolute Ensemble.
 
 He leads his own group: Franz Hackl’s IDO . A Quartet with Mino Cinelu on percussion, Matt Garrison on bass and Adam Holzman on keyboards. IDO means dialect for everybody and brings Tyrolean Folk tunes, the music he grew up with, to the world stage by developing his own international musical language by combining his tradition with Jazz, world grooves and electronics.
Franz is a Col Legno Artist, a leading record label in the contemporary music field. He is also co-leading the brass trio B3+ (with Dave Taylor on bass trombone and John Clark on French horn), which just released their debut CD on Col Legno.



 
Adam Holzman – keyboards, piano

Keyboard player Adam Holzman was a member of the Miles Davis Band from 1985 to 1989, and he performed with the trumpet legend in more than 200 concerts worldwide and can be heard on the albums "Tutu," "Live Around the World" and "Complete Montreux Box Set" (Warner Bros.). In 1988 he became Miles's musical director. For his session and live performances, Adam was praised by the New York Times for "innovative keyboard work," and by Keyboard magazine as "one of the most promising synth soloists."
Adam has also performed and recorded extensively with Grover Washington, Jr., Chaka Khan, Wayne Shorter, Michel Petrucciani, Steps Ahead, Wallace Roney and many others. Adam was nominated for 'best electric jazz keyboard player' by Keyboard magazine.
