About The Event

Jazz-center-of-the-universe-based, exiled German-born drummer Jochen Rueckert presents a LA version of his quartet. Jochen is mostly known for his work in 12 years of the Marc Copland trio, the mid-2000 Kurt Rosenwinkel New Quartet, all of Nils Wogram's Root 70, recent work with the Melissa Aldana trio, his electronic music programmed under the alias "Wolff Parkinson White" as well as his series of ebooks aptly titled "Read the Rueckert- travel observations and pictures of hotel

rooms".

His compositions contain surprisingly more optimistically swinging sections rich with chords than one would expect from a teutonic drummer, sprinkled with the occasional 3/8 bar for good measure. Jochen's deliberate avoidance of formal music education, albeit initially for budgetary reasons, provides a great lack of erudite nonsense in his writing. He's celebrating his 4th album, titled "Charm Offensive" (Pirouet records, 2017).
