Benjamin Koppel & The European Jazz Factory

When Danish piano player Carsten Dahls variations between the poetic improvisations and free jazz energy, meets drummer Daniel Humair, who has been one of the absolute biggest Free Jazz stars in Europe for more than 40 years, you are in for a musical treat out of the ordinary.
