Live: Tom Kessler Trio

Tom Kessler Trio | 31.Oktober | Klunkerkranich

„Intriguing voicings on guitar, buzzing melodic lines on bass and an understated percussive structure…..“

“It’s nice to see that the traditional guitar trio format is far from done being explored and still has plenty to offer, without necessarily undergoing a radically modern-electronic approach.”

by Friedrich Kunzmann-All about Jazz
