Mahall Rupp TomRudi Mahall is a legendary figure on the international jazz/avantgarde scene. As a member of Schlippenbach’s Globe Unity Orchestra, Monk’s Casino and Die Enttäusshung he has gained a reputation as one the great European improvisors and a unique communicator on the bass clarinet.
Olaf Rupp plays the guitar like no one else. His very personal style of playing mixing complex extended techniques with a strong melodic sence and his great command of the guitar, makes him a strong musical voice and a perfect partner to Mahall.
Over the past decade, Kasper Tom has made his name on the European improv- and advantgarde-scene. Kasper’s playings draws inspiration from modern music, but is also imbued with a great deal of tradition and a unique sense of melody and flow.
Together the three improvisers join forces on the release ”Rudi Mahall Olaf Rupp Kasper Tom” out June 28th 2019 on Barefoot Records.
