Cinematic, Improvisation, Soundscapes


Steve Reich, Jaga Jazzist, John Hollenbeck


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.
