Tribute To Jaki Liebezeit (RBMA Mix)

Influential drummer, Can member and krautrock pioneer Jaki Liebezeit passed away on January 22, 2016. Kirk Degiorgio honors Jaki’s metronome style of playing with a two hour mix of his finest works alongside Can, Manfred Schoof, David Sylvian & Holger Czukay, Jah Wobble and more.
A founding member of legendary krautrock outfit Can, Jaki has been called “one of the few drummers to convincingly meld the funky and the cerebral” by Jeff Norman. Born in 1939 in Dresden, Liebezeit started out as a jazz musician. Spending the early 1960s in Barcelona, he played with Chet Baker and Tete Montoliu, joined the Manfred Schoof Quintet a little bit later, shaped European free jazz and finally took a ride into the psychedelic realm with Can – a group that always stressed that they were anything but a rock band. The ’80s saw Liebezeit as a member of Phantomband, working with Jah Wobble, Depeche Mode or Brian Eno, and forming drum ensembles such as Drums Off Chaos and Club Off Chaos. In recent years, most of all, his efforts with Burnt Friedman have been the center of attention
