Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"The young jazz pianist Marie Kruttli hails from the French-speaking part of Switzerland and has gained an outstanding international reputation in recent years with her trio and solo work. Now she presents Transparence, her first solo piano album. After a classical education, she became more and more interested in other forms of musical expression, particularly jazz, in which she discovered a music which allows a different physicality and intuition. Kruttli's music follows an intuitive approach, with a broad harmonic vocabulary and rhythmic finesse. In the liner notes, Jordannah Elizabeth calls Kruttli "a young visionary and a premiere European jazz pianist whose touching, penetrating compositions make waves throughout the jazz community and beyond."-Intakt Records

Artist Biographies

"Marie Kruttli is a swiss pianist, composer, producer who lives in Berlin. She was born in a village in Switzerland, in a family of musicians and started playing the piano at the age of 6. She first learned classical music and then switched to jazz (obtaining later on a bachelor and master at HEMU Lausanne and Hochschule Luzern academies). Marie received numerous prizes for her performance and composition work. The band that she has performed the most with so far is her trio (now with bassist Lukas Traxel and drummer Gautier Garrigue) but the artist is working now on a project called Dragon Life which was born from her producing work. It is a band that has two different constellation (duo and sextet) where she also uses her voice and synthesisers."
