Martin Sasse & Marcus Bartelt

Martin Sasse — Piano
Marcus Bartelt — Baritone Saxophon, Flute

Here two old musical friends reach out their hands - and offer us a dialogue, which you don't often get to hear. In the hands of Marcus Bartelt, his baritone saxophone produces a truly royal sound, which Jason Marsalis, DePhazz and Chilly Gonzales have regularly appreciated. His sax playing is clear and lively. Martin Sasse guides his hands over the keys with somnambulistic confidence in style - sometimes angular and individualistic like Monk, then again clear and elegant like Sasse himself. Full of the joy of playing these two great jazz musicians from Cologne present their own compositions and their interpretations of the infamous Thelonius Monk.
