Works from the album »It’s Still Autumn« etc.

Kayhan Kalhor is the world’s most celebrated grandmaster of the kamancheh, a four-stringed, vertically held Persian spiked fiddle. With it, he gets together with Dutch jazz pianist Rembrandt Frerichs’ trio, who specialise in playing historical instruments. They play the fortepiano and violone, the forerunners of the modern grand piano and double bass, as well as the »Whisper Kit«, a collection of ethnic percussion instruments and atmospheric sound and rustling machines. According to Kalhor himself, this fusion cannot be defined: "You can't categorize it, it's not jazz, it's not classical music". So what connects them so well? Improvisation! And so, two very different cultures are mixed together as the trio's historical jazz rich with overtones blends into perfect harmony with the heartrending, melodic sound of Kalhor's instruments. Immerse yourself in an expressive, transnational experience full of enticing and mysterious sounds, where interactions between musicians evolve spontaneously!
