Uber-sharp swirl. KUU! finds its way on paths paved with two guitars: Frank Möbus plinks delicious raindrop notes, and like something out of a dream, guitarist Kalle Kalima carves the very air. The magnificent jazz-punk cascades of drummer Christian Lillinger. Singer Jelena Kuljić sings supreme with a voice of steel and dark chocolate. This music is its own theatre, hectic modern noir. Touch it now! KUU!’s debut album “Sex gegen Essen” was released by Shoebill Music in March 2014.

Free Jazz ist einerseits ein historischer Begriff für freies Improvisationsspiel im Jazz seit den 1960er Jahren,

andererseits ist es ein bis heute ausstrahlendes Paradigma, das die Möglichkeit zur freien Entfaltung immer neuer Formen im Jazz und auch darüber hinaus bereithält.

Der Begriff selbst kann zu Missverständnissen führen, da eine Freiheit in Bezug auf die herkömmlichen Spielhaltungen des Jazz nur bedingt genutzt wird und es neben einer völligen Freiheit in der Form durchaus Improvisationen gibt, die auf Kompositionen und kompositionsähnlichen Absprachen über Strukturen beruhen.


Free jazz is an approach to jazz music that was first developed in the 1950s and 1960s as musicians attempted to alter, extend, or break down jazz convention, often by discarding fixed chord changes or tempos. Though the music of free jazz composers varied widely, a common feature was dissatisfaction with the limitations of bebop, hard bop, and modal jazz that had developed in the 1940s and 1950s. Often described as avant-garde, free jazz has also been described as an attempt to return jazz to its primitive, often religious, roots and emphasis on collective improvisation.
