liner notes: A poetic spark of virtuosity, yearning, full of promise and fulfilling at the same time. Four extraordinary musicians interweave a wide musical range to combine modern Jazz with folkloric elements from South Eastern Europe and the Orient with elegance and charm. Kaleidoskop. Roughly translated as seeing beautiful forms, can be heard here literally, as a brilliant shimmer of all spectral colors, focused in a striking musical event. Jazz Guitarist Christian Hammer, thankfully blessed in his search for beauty, found three powerful fellow musicians and thus a congenial cast for his quartet. Saxophonist Dimitrij Markitantov combines modern jazz saxophone with the vibrant, fluttering sound of South Eastern Europe. Embedded and surrounded by Christian Hammer’s guitar, which sometimes contrasts and sometimes complements, sometimes playful, quiet at times, carefully groping, then decidingly, powerful, full stylistic brilliance. Alex Morsey uses the double bass and the tuba to create the impressive foundation of the music and, with his unique playing style, also sets some of the most striking musical highlights. The rhythmic threads hold Fethi Ak in his hands, who with his breathtaking and tempting play set the frame, that opens the space for the interpretation of original compositions and tunes from jazz and world music.
