Tim Sund Trio – Kailash
Tom Christensen tenor saxophone, english horn, oboe, bass clarinet
Tim Sund piano
Tomas Ulrich cello
The Kailash Trio uses a classical trio format of piano, cello and a woodwind instrument. On its first album the trio presents a fresh look at jazz and improvised music through a unique balance of composition and improvisation that erases the borders between classical music and jazz.
The instrumentation with Christensen doubling on various woodwind instruments, which include instruments as rarely heard in Jazz as oboe and English horn, and Tomas Ulrich on cello give Sund in his compositions a grand palette of sound to draw upon.
"Schon die ungewöhnliche Besetzung signalisiert Musik im Grenzbereich von Klassik und Jazz. Tatsächlich erinnern Sequenzen des Albums an Mstislaw Rostropowitsch und andere an Jimi Hendrix."
