Carl Zinsius Project

The Carl Zinsius Project is a chamber ensemble, improvisation collective and groove machine all in one. And plays its very own version of European jazz in the 21st century.

On their debut album “Five Banana – The music of Carla Bley” the international ensemble interprets the repertoire of the US-American composer with great curiosity and open ears.
Absurdly funny themes with the typical Bley-wink meet dreamy, beautiful melodies with plenty of room for improvisation and joy of playing.
Daring? Yes, but worth a listen.
