Hammer Klavier Trio

BORIS NETSVETAEV (p), PHIL STEEN (b) und KAI BUSSENIUS (ds). They have the features necessary to give this so complex and traditional trio setting an original character: they are devoted to the music as a whole, they are virtuosos on their instruments, they are young and at the same time have collected a huge wealth of experience. And … they are friends. Since the founding of the Hammer Klavier Trio in 2002, their individual personalities miraculously melt together when they head to the improvisational journey with an interlude of Prokofiev, an African folk song or an ostinato funk groove

Wolfgang Schlüter Quartet & NDR Bigband: Visionen

Read "Visionen" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Visionen may be the best big band recording that went largely unheard in 2012. The music itself was hiding in plain sight, available for purchase from the usual on-line mega-stores (i.e. Amazon.com) and download sights (i.e. iTunes), but the record received scant attention in jazz circles, and the majority of the attention it did receive came ...

The music that they present completely erases the dividing lines between traditional piano trios, hard hitting threesomes like The Bad Plus, and genre-blending Euro-stars like the late Esbjörn Svensson Trio. This band has all ...
