John Ghost (Gent, BE), the sextet around guitarist / composer Jo De Geest, draws influences from jazz, rock and contemporary classical music. Minimalism, electronics and a cinematic atmosphere characterize their instrumental music. John Ghost is ingenious and accessible, often described as a symbiosis between the sounds of Steve Reich, Nils Frahm and Jaga Jazzist . In autumn 2019 they will be releasing their second album, ‘Airships Are Organisms’, through Sdban Records. Herein the band was accompanied by Jørgen Træen, producer of, among others, the Norwegian electro-jazz group Jaga Jazzist, Kaizers Orchestra, Hubro and Sondre Lerche.
