Jochen Rueckert Quartet


(Monday, 17 June, 8:00PM)

Venue:  HK Arts Centre

JWLS is bringing Jochen Rueckert Quartet to Hong Kong on 17 June 2019. Jochen Rueckert will perform at the Shouson Theater, Hong Kong Arts Center with Lage Lund acclaimed as one of the finest guitarists of his generation, one of jazz’s music most in demand bassist Matt Penman and legendary saxophonist Mark Turner.

Jochen Rueckert is a German drummer who deliberately avoided formal musical education, which is very interesting in the writing and sounding of his music. Together with Mark Turner he has been touring for over 8 years, reaching a greater depth of musical interaction. Jochen is also known for his play in the Marc Complendo trio (mid 2000) and in the Nils Wogram & Root 70 groups, the Kurt Rosenwinkel Group. He also performed with John Abercrombie, Ignaz Dinné, Pat Metheny, Matt Penman, Kenny Werner and many other well-known jazz performers.

Mark Turner is considered one of the most prominent American saxophonists of the modern generation. He is compared to John Coltrane and Varna Marsh. His Fly trio is best known for the best post-bop / neo bop albums. Mark works with such stars of modern jazz as Aaron Goldberg, Kurt Rosenwinkel, David Binnie. His improvisations cover several octaves at once, and they are characterized by rhythmic complexity of execution. This is what creates the unique Turner style.

About JWLS

Pelago Events Hong Kong JWLSJazz World Live Series : << After starting my CD shop, I remember thinking back to one day when I was helping Eric Marienthal with his Asia tour and he said to me, “Hey Clarence, you are taking us to all these jazz festivals in Asia, why don’t you take us to a jazz festival in your country?” And I said to myself, that’s it, that’s what I’m going to do next.  I started the first jazz festival in Hong Kong in Oct 2008 with acts including Bob James, the Yellow Jackets with Mike Stern, Alain Caron with Frank Gambale. >>
