JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2015 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Julia Hulsmann Trio at Rochester International Jazz Festival

The Berlin based Julia Hulsmann Trio at the Lutheran Church was a real treat. Iimagine the first ECM album you ever heard, that smart, European take on jazz and that pristine Sunday morning sound. Hulsmann is a fabulous piano player. They played a great version Kurt Weil's "Alabama Song," a tribute to Monk and a gorgeous song she wrote called "The End of Summer." My favorite tune, a real romp led by the bass player, was back announced as a song they had played for the very first time.
