A summit meeting of three jazz cowboys: Kalle Kalima's exploration of Western and country music. Conceptually dense and stripped down to the essentials. Featuring Greg Cohen and Max Andrzejewski.

Kalle Kalima
Kalle Kalima is a musical adventurer. Whether pushing the boundaries of rock, paying homage to his Finnish roots, or engaging in jazz anarchy with his band Kuu!, the guitarist loves to explore the freedom, breadth, and depth of improvised music time and time again. Without compromising the personal atmosphere, a certain creative madness must never be lacking. As both a bandleader and composer, he is undoubtedly one of the most interesting musicians of the modern era in Europe. With the Kalle Kalima Trio, he won the "Neuer Deutscher Jazzpreis" (New German Jazz Prize) in 2008. In addition to his current musical projects like Kuu!, he has collaborated with artists such as Marc Ducret, Simon Stockhausen, the NDR BigBand, and many more.   On his journey through modern jazz, Kalle Kalima remains a constant presence, always ready to surprise and innovate.
