Kaufmann / Moore / van der Schyff

Kaufmann / Moore / van der Schyff: Kamosc (Red Toucan)
Label: Red Toucan    
Released in: Canada    

"Blurring the boundary lines between jazz and classical music, German-born pianist Achim Kaufmann draws from a variety of styles as this improvising trio's founder and principal writer. Recorded at various locations while on tour, both in and out of the studio, Kamosc features an amalgam of European folk traditions, contemporary chamber music, primitive funk, blues and even Dixieland, providing these skeletal tunes with an abundance of history to draw from.

The album and tour were initially conceived by Kaufmann after collaborating with multi-instrumentalist Michael Moore and percussionist Dylan van der Schyff on the latter's recent quintet recording, Definition of a Toy (Songlines, 2005). Both long-term Amsterdam residents, Moore and Kaufmann have a shared history behind them, and Moore is a current member of Kaufmann's quartet.

As a member of the ICP Orchestra, Moore has also spent time with trombonist Wolter Wierbos, and it shows in their hearty interaction on Wierbos' two guest spots. Vancouver's Dylan van der Schyff is quickly becoming a ubiquitous presence, capable of handling both free and structured situations in equal measure, and his colorful contributions to this trio effort far exceed mere timekeeping."-Troy Collins, All About Jazz
