A top-class line-up has gathered in the newly founded YAMABIKO QUINTET.
The five musicians demonstrate their high virtuosity and musicality with dense, intense and tension-filled improvisations and compositions.
Michel Pilz, Reiner Winterschladen and Frank Paul Schubert are three great wind players, all actionists of a clear line that combines Coltrane's ideal of sublime tonality with the rigor of new music. The interactions among them work perfectly.
Christian Ramond plays his bass with chamber-musical clarity, and Klaus Kugel is as light-handedly sensitive a percussionist as one could wish for in such a soloist ensemble.
Recorded February 22 & 23, 2022 by Christian Heck at LOFT, Cologne, Germany.
