Trio Kika Sprangers, Martin Fondse, Jörg Brinkmann
January 2020 Dutch trio Kika Sprangers (saxophones), Martin Fondse (piano & keyboards vibrandoneon) and Jörg Brinkmann (cello, electronics) finished recording fourteen instrumental pieces at Splendor Amsterdam, with producer/engineer Chris Weeda (most known for his work with Toots Thielemans).
“Lumen” is their blueprint for searching new paths in modern music, an album rich of themes. This remarkable combination of three composers and performers – with roots in European jazz and chambre music – travels many musical roads. The result is a colorful collaboration with lyrical and melancholic melodies with a minimal and cinematic vibe.
