Claudio Roditi, Klaus Ignatzek and Jean-Louis Rassinfosse prove again and again in their concerts that they are among the greats of the scene. Breathtaking improvisations, daring tempi and the interplay developed over the years, performed energetically and intoxicatingly, make their jazz a special experience, even for non-jazz fans.
The world-famous Brazilian trumpeter Claudio Roditi, the German Klaus Ignatzek, who is one of the top European jazz pianists, and the internationally renowned Belgian bassist Jean-Louis Rassinfosse have played together continuously for almost 30 years.
Their CDs, which have been released by various labels, not only received excellent reviews worldwide, but also spent weeks at the top of the American radio charts.
The three musicians form a unit in which blind understanding and musical equality are a matter of course. The three of them always succeed in kidnapping the listener into their world of sound, unobtrusively, but intensively and crossing borders.
"A musical art that goes into the stomach and caresses the mind and soul at the same time."
In addition to specially arranged standards, the music of the trio mainly consists of their own compositions from the fields of jazz and Latin jazz. Countless concerts in Europe and 20 joint CDs impressively document their long-term collaboration.
Klaus Ignatzek celebrated his 40th stage anniversary in 2015. He can look back on an extraordinarily successful career as a pianist and composer. Without a doubt, Klaus Ignatzek belongs to the top guard of European jazz pianists. During this time he has recorded over 60 CDs on which more than 300 of his compositions can be heard. His diverse teaching experience is documented in three jazz textbooks he has written.
