Released in: USA
"Karl 2000 plays music by combining elements of Tradition Russian Folk tunes with Albert Ayler enthusiasm, original compositions with the humor and playfulness of The Bad Plus, arrangements of solo piano repertoire for Saxophone-Bass-Drums and a David Cassidy cover of "I Think I Love You." Karl's primary influence is The Alexandrov Ensemble, taking choral music and presenting it in the power-trio format. With Daniel Rovin on tenor saxophone, Austin White upright bass & Dave Miller drums, Karl plays hard, free-swinging jazz with a passion for the masses.
