Purple is the Color. Red is the heart. Blue is the brain. Purple is the Balance. And of course, you need some magic. “’Purple is the Color are the Beatles of jazz,” says Austrian pianist Simon Raab who founded the band in 2016 with a smile. The quartet now has a huge history of concerts and festivals. MICA/Music Austria say: “jazz music of tremendously elegant quality, the kind that does not linger in the classical realm, but rather unfolds many interesting interconnections to other styles.” Their aim is to touch the audience with their music, release deep-rooted feelings and trigger emotions. “I sense that the band will become bigger and brighter “(Jazz Dergisi, Istanbul).
