Johannes Mössinger Quartett Live

With Joel Frahm, Calvin Jones and Karl Latham

In 2008 Johannes Moessinger came up with the idea of starting a new quartet and later in this year he found the ideal musicians for his project. Joel Frahm and Calvin Jones came in the band and formed together with drummer Karl Latham and Johannes Moessinger his current quartet.

Already the first live concerts indicated that the chemistry in this group is perfect, that a new real band had started. And this quartet got the chance to work a lot, to play many concerts together and to get into a deeper level of group communication. New artistic levels opened.

During these tours the CD Live was recorded. The music of this album shows again the important factors for Moessingers music: The improvisers freedom and the form of music and melody. Both sides are important for Johannes Moessinger, and on this album they work together constantly. First of all the quartet is improvising and creates the beauty of its music, while playing the ideas, which develop from the miracle of the moment.

At the same time the group takes care for the formal architecture and composed structure in melodies and songs and creates the music between the elements control and creativ chaos.
