THE ROLF KUHN GROUP - TOTAL SPACE VINYL RE-ISSUE (LP)
Release Date: 25th February 2022
"For a German jazz musician to find international recognition as a major player has been and remains a rarity. Clarinettist Rolf Kühn belongs to this elite class. No one sounds like him on the clarinet; warm, round and masterful, his tone remains unmistakable no matter what style he may be playing at any given moment. His play resonates with a maturity and wisdom gathered from a long and rich life of musical experiences. At MPS, Rolf Kühn was allowed free rein to choose the team for the recordings and so he decided to get Wolfgang Hirschmann on board, one of the most interesting sound engineers in jazz at that time. Having a free jazz background, Kühn breaks out in a new direction towards jazz fusion with this album."
