Live at JGTT Festival in Hradec Králové
Innovative Czech-German duo using remarkable instruments and sound objects.
Formed in 2019, the duo of German percussion magician Klaus Kugel and Czech saxophonist and clarinetist Pavel Hrubý thrilled audiences at the two Czech festivals in two unforgettable improvised concerts. Klaus Kugel is one of the leading drummers of the European jazz and experimental scene. He not only plays classical drum sets, but also creates remarkable percussion instruments and objects, which he innovatively integrates into his playing. Pavel Hrubý is a versatile woodwind player who has held a prominent position in Czech modern jazz for more than twenty years.
The concert in Hradec Králové at "Mezinárodní Hudební Festival - Jazz Goes to Town" was recorded in high quality and will be released in 2022 on the renowned label HevHet.
