Biography

Since Michael Wollny released his ACT debut album “call it [em]” in January 2005, the critics have been raving about the young pianist: “Young enough to not have to drag around the burden of jazz history with him and alert enough to re-discover something old everyday,” wrote the Zeit newspaper. Eleven albums later and Wollny is today regarded as “Germany’s ... Read more in Amazon's Michael Wollny Store

Product Description

Whatever you do, question everything around you and don t simply follow authorities. While this attitude might be associated by some with punk music, it was also adopted by jazz visionaries like Miles Davis and Albert Mangelsdorff. Reinventing yourself, discovering something new, making a clean sweep, being a bit of a rebel and always being driven by creativity this outlook also applies to Michael Wollny, Eva Kruse and Eric Schaefer. Michael Wollny once said that they wanted to have some punk in their jazz. Breaking boundaries is the philosophy of the trio and certainly holds true on Wasted & Wanted . European jazz tradition, indie rock, Western and contemporary art music, sound experiments and some punk attitude this all merges effortlessly and uniquely together and makes the trio one-of-a-kind. The potential of the band was discovered early on and they took the jazz world by storm. They have been highly acclaimed ever since their debut album Call It [em] was released in 2005, and the German newspaper DIE ZEIT even called them the world s most exciting piano trio". Their album [em] live at Jazzbaltica from 2010 was hailed as the finest jazz album of the last quarter of a century by Jazzwise's Stuart Nicholson. Wollny, Kruse and Schaefer take us along on a high intensity musical adventure, full of enthusiasm. It is an adventure that changes its colours like a chameleon: it s about tracing new sounds and experiencing different emotions. Energetic and ecstatic, mysterious and contemplative, melancholy and overwhelming, performed with heart and brain, powerful and wild - the album is all of this and more. The bonus CD comes in a separate slipcase and contains four tracks Live at JazzFest Berlin 2011.

Format: Audio CD
Eva Kruse's bass playing is wonderful, full of surprises and powerful musical lines that make sense. The first time I heard 'em' I was moved to tears by their integrity. Every note is played with conviction. This trio is dynamic, passionate, fearless and playfull. Their compositions are fresh, full of surprises with many twists and turns. I have all their cd's and seen them play live. em's approach is refreshing.

The music on this CD felt rather stark and cold to me. Think John Lennon and his early work with the Plastic Ono Band as opposed to his work with the Beatles. This meant that the off-key descants on some of the early tracks were unsuccessful, because in a production so bare they need to be more subtle. But later tracks are more melodic and the penultimate track is a delight. The group loosen up in the additional CD where they play live.
