The Vienna label for fine jazz, Handsemmel Records, is bringing a team of internationally-respected musicians to this year’s Vienna Jazz Fest. The Gräwe/ Koglmann Quintet sails under the leadership of captains Georg Gräwe (p) and Franz Koglmann (tp,fh) for a coastal and transcontinental voyage. Also on board is Holland-based US musician Michael Moore (cl,as); another European-based American, Gerry Hemingway (dr), and German bassist Robert Landfermann. All of these musicians have performed with each other over the years, but this is the first time all of them will be performing together. Under the motto “West of the Sun”, these five experienced musicians will take a contemporary and personal approach to the West Coast jazz era of the 1950s.
