A treat is in store for Jazz lovers at the end of April when Rainer Böhm brings his ‘Standard Trio’ to the Pantheon. Böhm has been one of the outstanding German jazz pianists on the jazz scene for some years now and has won numerous prizes. He studied jazz piano and jazz arrangement at the Musikhochschule in Mannheim and Cologne and has participated in more than 50 CD recordings both as a bandleader and as a sideman. As a much sought-after pianist, the 40-year-old has made a name for himself in the international jazz scene.
For the concert in Bonn on 29 April Böhm will be joined by Christian Ramond on Upright Bass and Jonas Burgwinkel on Drums. As internationally sought-after sidemen and multiple prize winners, both Burgwinkel and Ramond have made a name for themselves around the globe. Ramond is a master of his trade and has performed alongside Joe Pass, Albert Mangelsdorf, P.Catherine, Kenny Wheeler, Lee Konitz, Ch.Mariano, Thomas Stanko, Bobby Shew, Jon Eardly, Dave Liebman, K.Berger, Itaru Oki.
Burgwinkel is a co-founder of the Cologne Jazz Collective ‘KLAENG’ and nominee/recipient of numerous Jazz awards such as “ECHO JAZZ 2012”, the SWR- and the WDR-Jazzpreis, and the “BEST SOLOIST AWARD” at the North Sea Jazz Festival. He has appeared on numerous CDs; and countless radio and television recordings document the success of his musical work. Like Ramond, Jonas Burgwinkel has performed worldwide, with jazz greats such as John Scofield, Chris Potter, Uri Caine, Dave Liebman, Lee Konitz and John Taylor.
The Standard Trio set-up is one of the favourite projects of Rainer Böhm, and his interest in interpreting the standards of the “Great American Songbook” sets a contrast to his many other musical focuses.
In this project, the trio play the compositions quite unpretentiously – and by doing so bring to the audience’s ears what normally happens behind closed doors in the rehearsal room.
Freedom and joy of improvisation of the completely unarranged original are in the foreground and promise an exciting evening full of surprising moments.
