Jazz at JAKI: Ellington Trio feat. Frederik Köster
With the Ellington Trio, the three musicians have achieved a rare feat: they have formed a band with its own sound, which at the same time consists of three expressive soloists. As the name suggests, they refer to the great master of swing jazz, Duke Ellington. The trio draws inspiration from his repertoire and - just like the Duke himself - straddles the line between tradition and avant-garde.
The chamber music instrumentation consisting of piano, double bass and vocals offers the three artists very special freedom. Together they work out sophisticated and sensitively interwoven arrangements and have developed their very own and very delicate playing culture. In doing so, they showcase their outstanding soloistic skills and at the same time create an unmistakable overall sound that has developed organically in the band's history, which now spans several years.
The lineup, which has been in existence since 2015, has invited a special guest for their current program and second album, "Things ain't what they used to be." Frederik Köster on trumpet. Together with him they enter into a lively conversation and enter new, exciting sound spaces.
Barbara Barth (vocals), Gero Körner (piano), Caspar van Meel (bass), Frederik Köster (trumpet)
