Description

In 2016 the Eva Klesse Quartet (led by the German drummer) released their second album 'Obenland', establishing its status on the European jazz scene. Excellent reviews followed, as well as invitations to festivals and international concert tours, which took the band to Asia and Central and South America. And now begins the third chapter in this artistic success story: 'Miniature' - ten songs for chamber jazz quartet

JazzThing described 'Obenland' as "wild, romantic, elegiac and tantalising," while the Weser Kurier picked up on the band's "impressively precise interaction". The FAZ wrote: "The pieces develop fluently, and typical boundaries between composition and improvisation blur imperceptibly. The Eva Klesse Quartet's jazz is rich in interesting melodies and harmonies, attracting different kinds of listeners, yet is far removed from the mainstream."

The title of the new album indicates the band's aesthetic direction this time. While Obenland captivated the listener with its extended tracks and featured sweeping dynamics and wide arcs, the new album is more intimate and reduced. What has not changed, however, is the impelling interaction of different approaches to playing and the members' different characters, which add significantly to the quartet's appeal. The fellow performers attentively listen and give space to each other while showing a keen intuition for storytelling without words.
