Jazz at JAKI: Johanna Klein Quartett


The new album of the Johanna Klein Quartet - COSMOS - was released in May under the label Berthold Records and is now brought to the stage. Besides the bandleader Jan Philipp on drums, Leo Engels on guitar and Nicolai Amrehn on double bass play and thus three renowned musicians of the Cologne jazz scene. They play their own compositions, which are constantly developed and transformed in the collective. The music moves in the area of tension between modern jazz and free improvisation, but influences from pop and rock are also recognizable. The sound of the band is distinguished by the improvisational handling of parameters such as sound density, dynamics, playful freedom and fixed schemes. Bass, saxophone and drums are handled acoustically and complemented by the electronically distorted sound of the electric guitar. In early 2019, the Johanna Klein Quartet won the Werner Richard - Dr. Carl Dörken Foundation jazz competition and the performance scholarship that came with it. In August 2021, the Johanna Klein Quartet won the composition prize of the Avignon Jazz Festival.
