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 ...

Hammer Klavier Trio: Rocket In The Pocket

Read "Rocket In The Pocket" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Power piano trios willing to plug-in are not the norm in jazz, but Hamburg's Hammer Klavier Trio, thankfully, never received that message. 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 ...

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.
