Momentum is a piano trio led by the Estonian bassist Peedu Kass, who is a sought after sideman and a prolific musician in the European jazz scene. The direction of this ensemble is contemporary piano trio jazz, with adventurous rhythms, a clear sound and a dashing stage performance. If you’re looking for a piano trio with a spark, then this is your choice! The music they perform is compositions from all group members, with a focus on Peedu’s tunes.
The pianist of the group is the brilliant Kristjan Randalu, the ambassador of Estonian jazz in the western hemisphere. A member of the oudist Dhaffer Youssef’s band, he also performs with jazz giants like Ben Monder, Ari Hoenig, Nguyen Le and Nils Petter Molvaer. Kristjan brings plenty of sparkling virtuosity and rhythmic intensity to the group. Drummer Toomas Rull is the keystone of Estonian jazz drumming. A sensitive musician and a prolific songwriter, who knows how to enrich any group’s sound. His extensive sideman career has taken him to recordings of more than 100 albums.
The special guest of the concert is a popular Latvian singer Intars Busulis.
