(Bundeskunsthalle | 15.5.2015)

For his newest project, the Swiss trumpeter Franco Ambrosetti has surrounded himself with a whole group of great jazz virtuosos, including the legendary musicians Greg Osby (alto saxophone), Buster Williams (bass) and Terry Lyne Carrington (drums). The title of their jointly recorded CD is ‘After the Rain’. The pieces that the sextet is going to present here are mostly compositions by the Swiss Ambrosetti, but the natural, spontaneous and fresh sound gives you an idea of the influence from the young John Coltrane. It is the style in which the deepest emotions are expressed in music and other innovations in tone, interpretation and intonation, which revive reminiscences of this great artist of the 1950s and 1960s.
