KAJA DRAKSLER - CHRISTIAN LILLINGER - PETTER ELDH
Intakt CD 318 / 2018
Rigobert Dittmann, BA 100, Oct 2018
Featuring Kaja Draksler on piano, Petter Eldh on bass and Christian Lillinger on drums. Slovenian pianist, Kaja Draksler, has come a long way in a short amount of time. Ms. Draksler moved to the Netherlands 10 years ago and has kept busy collaborating with a handful of European musicians: Ab Baars, Susana Santos Silva and Eve Risser. More recently, Ms. Draksler organized an octet, whose 2 CD set on the Clean Feed label is one of last year's best under-recognized treasures. Earlier this year, Ms. Draksler was part of a trio with Ab Baars (saxes)and Joe Williamson (bass), with a CD on Relative Pitch. Ms. Draksler's own trio features Petter Eldh on bass, who has worked with Django Bates & Peter Evans, and the ubiquitous, Christian Lillinger on drums, an in-demand percussionistic who has appeared on some 30+ releases so far.
