Chris Kase

Chris Kase (b. Born in 1964, New Brunswick, NJ, Chris Kase is a jazz trumpeter and flugelhornist who has lived in Madrid, Spain, since 1997. He has recorded and performed with many jazz musicians, including Kenny Wheeler and Kenny Nusbaum, Adam Nusbaum, Kenny Wheeler and Bob Mintzer, The Bird of Paradise Orchestra and Steve Coleman. Chris Kase is lucky to have seen his dreams come true. We can also enjoy them. Kenny Wheeler was a major influence on Kase’s understanding of music. With this recording, the dreamer can now enjoy what privacy was left. Kase’s second Spanish album, A Song We Once Knew is a record for trumpet players. Trumpet players engage in an emotional discourse, with sounds that mix and sometimes obscure the meanings of the terms teacher and student. Emotional in the creation of extended solos; solos which confer the virtues of communication on each trumpeter’s improvisational art. Both Wheeler and Kase are able to communicate their feelings, which is mainly expressed in jazz improvisation. These compositions are not just an “excuse” to improvise, but are a reason to listen to the disc. Carlos Perez Cruz * ** * * Kenny Wheeler is included in Tomajazz, a band where the leader is also a trumpet player. This is to set a high standard of perfection that could seriously damage his credibility. Chris Kase created an encounter for his Spanish second release that is collaborative and never antagonistic. This disc is one in which the first tracks establish a mood -in this instance, one of warm melancholy – that keeps the listener captivated until the end. Excellent. Angel Gomez Aparicio MAS JAZZ A timeless, fresh and uninhibited disc where the leader finds an ally in Canadian trumpeter Kenny Wheeler, who, while not overshadowing Kase’s music, displays one of the most round tones in jazz today. This disc is highly recommended, even if it’s competing with the import jazz in Spanish shops. Miquel Jurado, EL PAIS is Spain’s largest news newspaper. Download it from cdbaby
