Shining star in the German jazz guitar sky!
Arne Jansen (git), Andreas Edelmann (b), Tobias Backhaus (drums)
Jazz guitarist Arne Jansen is considered one of the greatest guitar talents in Germany. Together with Andreas Edelmann and Jan Burkamp he shows that creating debauched superlatives is not everything in jazz. He composes melodies that are as simple as they are varied and haunting, which the trio interprets intuitively on stage with melodic grace and effortlessness. Complex things sound simple here - but it also becomes clear that the simple things often have the greatest depth.
"Finally! Looking skyward, one is tempted to let out a cry of relief. There hasn't been a jazz guitarist of the caliber of young Berliner Arne Jansen in Germany for decades. Maybe never before."
Jazzthetik, October 2008, Wolf Kampmann
