CHRISTOPH BUSSE

According to the press, pianist Christoph Busse "is among today's best piano players in German modern jazz."
After his top score exam at Hilversum Conservatory of Music (NL), he has first been working as sideman, among others with Gunther Hampel's "Next Generation"(Hiphop-Jazz) from 1995-96, before he established his own trio in 1998.
With this group he draws upon the whole bandwith of stylistic possibilities of jazz, using a repertoire which includes both original compositions and rarely performed, newly arranged compositions by other musicians. His special preference for ballads cannot be overheard and makes hilarious highlighs happen on his live performances. His current program features songs by Sting "The Police" and Donald Fagen which he has arranged to fit the acoustic line-up.
