Jazzexcess present a great double bill at Aeden in Kreuzberg this March with Y-Otis and Dragon Life both performing live. The perfect jazz topping for you Shrove Tuesday pancakes!
Otis Sandsjö, known for his physical, yet melancholic style of playing, has in recent years grown to become one of the more sought after young saxophonists on the European progressive jazz and pop circuit. Berlin-based Sandjsö returned with his new album “Y-OTIS 2” on 24 July via Helsinki’s We Jazz Records. An inspired sequel to his 2018 debut ‘Y-OTIS’, the album takes the concept of beat-driven ‘liquid jazz’ created by Sandjsö and his close associate producer/bassist Petter Eldh (Koma Saxo) onto the next level. The lead track ‘Tremendoce’ is based on an infectious flute loop which features Swedish jazz greats Jonas Kullhammar and Per “Texas” Johansson. The core group also includes Dan Nicholls on keys and Tilo Weber on drums.
Marie Kruttli was born in Switzerland in 1991. She started playing the piano at the age of 6. After spending years playing classical music, she discovered jazz as a genre that resonated more with her body and soul. Marie studied at the jazz music department of the University of Lausanne (HEMU) with Emil Spanyi, where she received her bachelor’s in 2012. She then completed her master’s studying with Hans Feigenwinter in Lucerne.
