Caspar van Meel 5tet „On The Edge“




In an interview the bass player Caspar van Meel describes what jazz should be like as he sees it. „Jazz muss kochen“ is one central phrase. – And of course Jazz artists need assistance by the audience not only during live sessions.

Caspar van Meel and his band are looking for support to release a new album called „On The Edge“. Crowdfunding is the keyword.
