Equilibrium is not the absence of force but a perfect balance of all forces on a body. This statement is certainly not a new one, but has had an intriguing influence of Andreas Rapp’s thinking about musical interaction within an ensemble as well as in the process of composing new pieces. Neither in music nor in life balance is static, but a very dynamic process of constant change and adaptation. It is these ideas that have coined “Equilibrium”. Pairing a traditional jazz quartet and a string trio is dealing with two forces and at the same time creating a constellation that asks for interaction. Composition and improvisation form a foundation for each other. The spectrum of the mostly groove-based rhythm section is enhanced by the overarching aesthetics of the strings, while those boundaries are crossed more than readily. At the same time two musical ideals amalgamate as classical chamber music and contemporary jazz sounds form a perfect blend – a mixture that is deeply rooted in Rapp’s very own musical socialization and at the same time is one of the predominant motivations for this project.
The young German newcomer Andreas Rapp studied in New York with Vincent Herring and George Garzone. His tone is flawless and the arrangements are simply brilliant. (Jazzthing Germany)
