Modern Jazz / Mainstream Jazz

The quartet around the Essen double bass player Caris Hermes unites friendship and perfection with depth. With multi award winners Jerry Lu (piano), Niklas Walter (drums) and Lennart Allkemper (tenor saxophone), the bassist has brought three of NRW's most successful young jazz musicians to her side. At the PENG-Festival in Essen the audience experiences a new kind of freedom through energy, joy of playing and creativity. Each of her pieces tells a stirring and intimate story from a sensitive, detail-loving perspective on a racing (music) world.
