DARK HORSE is the second album from Tobias Meinhart’s BERLIN PEOPLE. The German saxophonist, based in Brooklyn, has composed a new program for his group featuring renowned guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel. The album’s central theme is the ambiguity of the phrase “dark horse,” which can refer to someone with a secret talent or an unexpected winner. All of the compositions on the album contain hidden elements or double meanings, or reveal their true nature only at the end. The tunes also showcase a range of saxophone and guitar lines, complemented by a tight rhythm section comprised of Berlin’s finest young musicians. After touring the world for two years, playing in countries such as Ecuador, Mexico, and Spain, as well as at the Jarasum Jazzfestival in South Korea, the band decided to capture the group’s energy in a live recording at Berlin’s premier jazz club, A-Trane. Over the course of two weeks in 2021 and 2022, the band recorded every night, and DARK HORSE is the result of these concerts.
