Katharina Maschmeyer Quartet feat. Frederik Köster -][- CIRCLE OF ELEMENTS -(MP3)- [Mons Records, 2011]
“Circle of Elements“ – a really philosophical seeming title for the second album of the “Katharina Maschmeyer Quartet“ – which fulfills the musical and compositional variety. Every song of the composers Katharina Maschmeyer and Nils Pollheide is underlined by a
very own compositional story. Stories fed by self experienced moments, experienced situations of real life – the „Circle of Elements“. This leads to the colorfulness, the style of their musical work, on the one hand the thrilling grooves and on the other hand inspired,
Brilliant part on “Circle of Elements“ has invited Guestsoloist Frederik Köster. His virtuous trumpet interweaves the sound of the band, gives inspiring impulses, thinks in a compositional way, creates colorful arcs on energetic grooves – here real interaction happens
between artists with mutual deep musical insight, way beyond the guest role…
Modern Jazz of the Katharina Maschmeyer Quartet – with “Circle of Elements“ we have good reason to expect much from the quartet!
