Jazz at Jaki: Lars Duppler Unbound

Lars Duppler's new trio with his long-time colleagues and friends Denis Gäbel and Jens Düppe is a logical development of his solo program "naked" with the support of saxophone in the melodic and drums in the rhythmic area. "Unbound" refers to the freedom of the instrumentation, the musical concept remains open: Thus, the bandbook contains compositions that could also fit into a piano solo program, but the trio also puts pressure in the lower frequency range, because despite the missing bass, vamps and rocky parts are not neglected.

"The Fender Rhodes gives me completely different sonic possibilities, such as creating "sound spaces" in connection with the fellow musicians: the music can breathe atmospherically, but also be rocky. Harmonically, I'm still unbound and keep all options open - and the saxophone grounds the music in the direction of jazz." The three musicians make skilful and conscious use of the "free" spaces that the line-up opens up for them on the one hand and that they create for themselves on the other. The transparency that this freedom offers them is what makes the trio so special - self-sufficient and unbridled, "unbound".
