The Westfalen Jazz Preis 2017 is awarded to the drummer Eva Klesse. The award will be handed out Sat, 7th. January 2017 during the 26th Internationalen Jazz festival Münster.

The musician originally from Werl (Westphalia) is regarded as the ‚Rising Star’ of the European Jazz scene. She is due to perform at the Jazz festival with her quartet. It is one of three concerts in relation to the accolade. It is quite rare to see female drummer in the world of Jazz. Eva Klesse is one of them. Quoting the credentials given by the artistic director of the festival Fritz Schmücker, the program presenter Waldo Riedl (domicil Dortmund) and Lena Jeckel (Bunker Ulmenwall Bielefeld) you find the following line : „Eva Klesse beeindruckt mit einem dynamischen Spiel, beherrscht feinste Nuancen und zarteste Töne. Sie überzeugt als Schlagzeugerin, Bandleaderin und Komponistin. In ihrem seit vier Jahren bestehenden Quartett prägt sie die Musik, eröffnet aber zugleich ihren Mitspielern alle Möglichkeiten, sich zu entfalten. Am Ende entsteht ein eigener Gruppensound auf Augenhöhe. Eva Klesse ist kreative Gestalterin mit identifizierbarer Handschrift und kongeniale Partnerin zugleich.“

Eva Klesse started with drumming at the age of 11. She studied medicine first but changed the subject and decided to be a trained drummerby studying at conservatories in Leipzig, Weimar, Paris and New York. „Xenon“ (enja records) was her debut album and got the Echo Jazz 2015  „Newcomer of the year“.  Her second album „Obenland“ made quite a splash in Europe too.
