Thomas Rückert – Piano
Johannes Lemke – Soprano & Altosaxophone
Impressionistic landscapes of sound, full of lyrical intensity, presented with pulsating ease and freshness. Thomas Rückert/piano and Johannes Lemke/sax let their experiences in classical music and their encounters with other musical cultures gently flow. While doing so, they remain firmly rooted in the jazz idiom and sometimes play all the way to the borders of tonality.
