Dan Tepfer and Kirk Knuffke are two musicians that, despite being being only in their thirties, have already become reference players on their respective instruments. Known for their versatility, which allows them to be equally at home with the repertoires of Johann Sebastian Bach or Erik Satie as well as with all-out improvisation, they have a capacity to make their collaborators shine. This mixtape features some highlights from their already extensive discography as leaders or sidemen.

Happy listening!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
