Biography

With her very own musical language, Julia Kadel has become a regular talking point in recent years and established herselve as an expressive jazz piano artist - also beyond Germany's borders. Releasing the first two records at Blue Note/Universal the Julia Kadel Trio was nominated in 2015 for the prestigious German Music Award Echo Jazz as “Newcomer of the year” and Julia Kadel as “Female instrumentalist of the year”. Just recently the Trio released their latest work Kaskaden. Julia Kadel's variable competitions, her imaginative playing and the band's striking improvisations became more courageous over time. On Kaskaden they have now reached a new dimension of detail and intensity. More determined than ever, the trio balances the fine line between harmony and atonality, intuition and reflection, poetry and austerity."Stylistically, we have become a bit more extreme again," outlines the undogmatic bandleader their latest artistic development, "we have taken more liberties and discovered new harmonies for ourselves." Unpredictable turns, the playful and tonal richness of variation of all participants as well as long, nuance long arcs of suspense motivate to a repetitive listening which is rewarded with always new impressions.
