Aki Takase – piano
Christian Weber – double bass
Michael Griener – drums

For the second time in Bucharest, after the extraordinary performance Takase – von Schlippenbach, presented at Jazz in Church in 2015, Aki Takase is ready to capture again the Bucharest audience, with a brand new “cooperation” program, alongside Christian Weber (db) and Michael Griener (dr). Their project – “Auge” (eye in German) – can be translated musically as a perfect balance between virtuosity and improvisational talent, qualities that consecrated the three musicians. One of the most prestigious names on the Swiss jazz scene, Christian Weber is performing all around the world with a plethora of outstanding representatives of the genre. The excellent German drummer Michael Griener is known as one of the leading performers of free improvisation and New Music in Berlin.
