Kind of Stue

Our new series "Kind of Stue" is a tribute to jazz and its artists, whose improvisational art emanates their very own nonchalance.
The title is based on one of the albums of the jazz story: "Kind of Blue" by Miles Davis, recorded in 1959, but timeless as ever. The series was opened on 02nd March 2017 by the German jazz legend Rolf Kuehn, who enchanted the listeners with his wit and elan.

Kind of Stue | Every 14 days from 9:30pm on

    chris adams TRIO ’68

    The TRIO `68 - has been playing warm for several years, unmistakable due to its tonal variety, authenticity, stylistic versatility, as well as its fancy and extensive repertoire - slowly but surely develops into a class of its own.

    Obliviously by all artistic and cultural dictates, fashion trends and media formats, but always self faithfully, it winds where art becomes entertainment and entertainment to art – friendship with both, but never married - always fresh, with a wink and
    sleepwalking security of classy and pop music.

    Next to fancy, well pointed instrumental compositions and sharp cut songs in German, also counts jazz literature, American songbook as well as exquisite Brazilian Repertoire to the “state of the art” of the trio.

    Céline Rudolph & Helio Alves

    The love of Brazilian music led the vocalist and songwriter Céline Rudolph on a global journey around the world. You may find the rather effortless musical floating and drifting of Céline Rudolph’s vocal artistry above a mellow mixture of rhythmic inspirations, all in all deceivingly relaxed but nonetheless highly sophisticated. She was lucky to share her passion for improvisation early on in her career during vocal encounters with Lauren Newton, Bobby Mc Ferrin, Jay Clayton and Judy Niemack. Céline is beyond happy to now play her first live gig at Kind of Stue with spectacular musician Helio Alves as the duo connects the ease and natural flow of Brazilian rhythm with the great jazz tradition and Céline’s own songs.

    Namdi

    Berliner with German and Nigerian roots, Arenor Anuku’s music has been driven by African, Latin American and Caribbean rhythms. His overall repertoire ranges from bouncy pop and mesmeric ethno to melancholic ballads with lyrics divulging the drifts of his private reflections and revealing his abundant interpersonal encounters “on the road”. Since 15 years ago, it’s been a musical journey spurred by Arenor’s deep longing for a peaceful coexistence of all cultures. Nnamdi is Anuku’s current project which also and in an equal measure implicates Matthew Bookert on sousaphone and drummer Paul Teschner. Influenced by the likes of Fela Kuti and Wes Montgomery, together they are dropping the kind of Afrobeat jazz that is contagiously ecstatic and manifests musicianship of the finest order.
