Christian Krischkowsky Quartet – pulsating acoustic jazz
Music with depth and humour, soulful, wild, fresh, lively and surprising – the quartet of Ulm drummer Christian Krischkowsky and his Berlin teammates Peter Ehwald (sax), Marc Schmolling(p), Roland Fidezius(b) expresses a broad spectrum of feelings. After „DIGITAL IMMIGRANT“ (nominated for the Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik 4/16), the quartet has moved even closer together musically and is now releasing their second album „THE END OF MELANCHOLISM“ (Doublemoon/Challenge international). The drummer’s expressionist compositions and arrangements playfully combine jazz tradition and modernity. Angular swinging influences of Thelonious Monk can be heard as well as contemporary, partly hip hop inspired rhythm structures or idiosyncratically interpreted pop classics e.B. of the Beatles. All with the very own expression of this quartet.
