Eva Kess Sternschnuppen – Falling Stars

The bassist, composer, and bandleader Eva Kess has created an arrestingly beautiful body of music that sounds unlike any other in the jazz-string canon. Kess’s fourth album, Sternschnuppen - Falling Stars, is an ambitious departure from her previous projects. She has gained attention on the European and New York scenes as a rising force on her instrument, and Sternschnuppen - Falling Stars marks her ascension as a composer/arranger with a strikingly integrated vision that treats all of her collaborators as equals within a single septet. Encompassing the post-bop continuum, chamber music, and jazz’s kindred South American traditions, the music showcases her big sound and commanding presence as a player, but Sternschnuppen - Falling Stars is most impressive as a statement by a composer who has found a voice as distinctive and personal as her compositional mentors, British pianist/composer Django Bates and Argentine pianist/composer Guillermo Klein.
