Description :Let's start by addressing the elephant in the room: this combination of musicians hardly makes sense. On paper, at least. Even though both Kaja Draksler and Terrie Ex are experienced improvisers, their methods and characters are so different that a sensible merger of their considerable forces seems out of the question. But then you realize that entire scenes and band catalogs were built on nonsensical premises. Don't they say that opposites attract?

Extremes can also cancel each other out and lead to something entirely new and thrilling. That's exactly what happens here. What you need above all, is a kinship. Mutual trust. Something that starts before you step on a stage. Witnessing Draksler and Hessels together, before and after a concert, it was obvious they felt at ease with each other. Different ages and personalities, but somehow compatible. That is a huge bonus if you commit yourself to creative interaction. This performance offers proof that in improvised music, expectations can be turned upside down and creativity comes in many disguises.

Over the past few years, pianist Kaja Draksler has turned into one of the consistently interesting musicians of her generation. Before her recent move to Copenhagen, she became a crucial member of the Amsterdam scene and she remains one on the international platform. With her own Octet, or musicians like Susana Santos Silva and Onno Govaert, she always manages to impress with her quick thinking, versatility, and a rich language that combines the (free) jazz tradition with elements from (contemporary) classical music and folk with a casual aplomb. Draksler retains her elegance even during dizzyingly complex interaction.
