Solo Jazz Piano Master Series vii : Barney Wakeford : Casper Tromp

Casper Tromp : Barney Wakeford Casper Tromp : Barney Wakeford

Casper Tromp is a Dutch industrial designer turned jazz piano player (he plays pop and classical pianos as well).  He's been living in Sydney the last few years, working with his improvising trio, experimental quartet, and playing lots of other formats.  Following from Gary's beautiful accordion tunes last week, Casper is also a big fan of Messiaen.

Barney Wakeford is an endlessly creative improvisor whose understanding and experimentation with form and harmony and the mechanics of playing piano has reached profound depths.
