Music happens: musicians come together, one has an idea, the others join in and let things happen. Unpredictable, very personal things: the goal is beauty and expression. Contrabassist Matthias Akeo Nowak and tenor saxophonist Sebastian Gille, drummer Bill Elgart and pianist Achim Kauffmann - very different in age and life paths but amazingly close together when the flow of their ideas is put in focus. With Elgart's drums displaying a richness of colour, Kaufmann's potential for sudden changes of direction and rich harmonies, Nowak's great clarity and calmness linking the various melodic threads and Gille's striking, almost breathless tone, this is improvisation as high art.
