Edgar Knecht Trio

Edgar Knecht is a professionally studied pianist and composer. In the course of a highly successful career, this ‘piano sensation,’ who was already concertizing at the age of fourteen, arrived at a musical sujet that has developed into his own personal language. In an entirely unique manner, Knecht combined jazz and folk tunes from a variety of sources with folksongs of his native Germany. He succeeded in reviving wonderful old songs, which had been almost forgotten because of the difficult times in German history. “An essential aspect of what I do is exposing my own musical roots. Whilst this is common in other cultures, in Germany it's not easy to use folk songs because of our special history“ the Kassel- born musician explains. Together with Rolf Denecke on upright bass and Tobias Schulte on percussion, Knecht has gained a world-wide reputation with his unique brand of music.

Playing along with the Trio are trumpet player David Cooper and Jamie Kember on trombone.
