A fusion of the vivacity of jazz and world music with the elegance of classical composition and the depth and ­clarity of ancient folk melodies.

'Conceptually this album is faultless - some of the tunes are refracted through the prism of bebop, 'Froiing', or the latin inspired 'Gedankenfreiiheit', but the album's centre is Knecht's interperetive mastery, eloquent musicianship and sheer creativity that makes this album sing. In Europe, the critics have been falling over themselves with delight since this album came out a few months ago, "Sometimes it's so good, it makes you cry," said Hessische Allgemeine, and you can understand where the reviewer is coming from. Edgar Knecht is a special talent.'  Stuart Nicholson, Jazzwise

 

On their new album 'Dance on Deep Waters', the brilliant quartet continue their forage through the 'Old German Songbook'. As a result, some of the most popular songs of the romantic era are turned into works of spine-tingling, mesmerising ­intensity, including Latin-flavoured 'Gedankenfreiheit' or lightning-speed bebop-piece 'Frühling'.

With his unique and refreshing approach, Edgar Knecht has both raised the bar for those following in his trail and opened up new gateways to long-lost traditions. Thanks to their airy, playful magic, his songs are suspenseful spaces for the imagination to run wild and seeming paradoxes to co-exist; 'Der wilde Wassermann' ('Wild Aquarius') is both minimal and classically rich, while tragic love story 'Es waren zwei Königskinder' ('Once there were two king's children') seems to ­dispense with time and space altogether.

Piano, bass and drums are dancing on the waves of deep waters, rhythms and melodies are rising like ecstatic fireworks. 'And all of this', according to newspaper Hessische Allgemeine, 'is done with plenty of Innigkeit, a boisterous joy of playing, a love for improvisation and spontaneity. Sometimes it's so good, it makes you cry.'
