Kurt Rosenwinkel Standards Trio @ Ystad Jazz Festival

Having just finished almost a month of touring Europe with John Scofield’s Hollwbody Band, on Aug. 3 Kurt will take his Standards Trio project to a great and relatively new festival in southern Sweden entitled Ystad Jazz Festival.

With him will be bassist Ugonna Okegwo, who has been performing with Kurt with increasing frequency  lately (Ugonna also plays with Tom Harrell, Jacky Terrasson etc), as well as a very special and dear friend + long-term musical partner on drums: Jeff Ballard. This is the first time in quite a while that Kurt and Jeff have performed together, and the first time Jeff plays in Kurt’s Standards Trio project (even though Kurt, Eric Revis & Jeff toured together trio back in 2004 5 years before Kurt officially started his Standards Trio project), so is quite a special occasion.

Please send us your reports, youtube’s etc back (by posting them here in the comments section) if you happen to be present at the event!
