Nils Wülker and Arne Jansen; Julia Hülsmann and Christopher Dell
Two artist pairings in one evening: "The Art of the Duo," the title of a new series as part of JazzNights in early 2023, presents two top-class duo lineups.
Trumpeter Nils Wülker and his guitar colleague Arne Jansen enrich their long-standing interplay with spontaneously applied electronic means of production. The "lyricist of jazz" (DIE ZEIT) Julia Hülsmann on piano and the vibraphonist Christopher Dell are different - they make music purely acoustically. By the way, Dell is not only world class on the vibraphone, but also an exciting guy in other ways: teaches architecture at the university, heads the self-founded "Institute for Improvisation Technology" in Berlin and may serve as an example of how broadly positioned musicians are nowadays.
