  • Ben Kraef - Rainer Böhm

    The creativity of the cosmopolitan tenor saxophonist Ben Kraef commutes between the pulsating jazz energy sources of Berlin and New York. The result, created together with one of the most sought-after young German pianists Rainer Böhm, is pure jazz that can seldom be heard today with this degree of purity and clarity. In terms of compositions and sound, Kraef does not adhere to the high-power, expressive Coltrane school, but rather to the rarer and more bluesy tradition of Sonny Rollins, although with his own lyricism and often with the warmth of Ben Webster.
