Boomkat Product Review:
There are many connections between bass clarinetist/soprano saxophonist Klaus Gesing, bassist Björn Meyer and drummer Samuel Rohrer. The experience of playing together and sharing their innovative spirit is a prerequisite for the artistic co- operation of this new trio, in which the love of adventure and improvisation takes precedence over the pre-composed.
"In this music a unique sound structure grows from within itself, layer by layer, and involves and enchants the listener. It is broadly emotional and without mystique or pretension. How else could these delicate dialogues develop such gravitational pull and magic? Acoustic and electronic sounds, sensuous rhythms, sumptuous woodwind-songs, earthen and ethereal bass lines, grooves and vibrant atmospheres all merge with one another and graciously rise from silence to hypnotic beauty. The inner logic of the trio’s interaction is compelling for it neither strives for attention nor takes the listener unawares. It grows and spreads coherently like a natural organism.
The three of them have, each in their own right, worked with outstanding vocalists. Samuel Rohrer with Laurie Anderson and Sidsel Endresen, Klaus Gesing with Norma Winstone, Björn Meyer with Asita Hamidi – all of whom are vocalists that can evoke textures with delicate poise, avoiding trends, and express them in an entirely personal way.
It also characterizes the unique quality of this trio’s instrumental music: richly coloured, highly concentrated and finely balanced, it develops a life of its own without ever imposing itself on the listener."
