Jazzthetik – November 2020 – Hans-Jürgen Schaal on “Late Night Kitchen

Jazz sometimes bores me – that`s why the Insomnia Brass Band excites me all the more. (…) a fun line-up, nothing is harmonically padded, nothing is prettified. The two wind players and the one drummer romp in earthy grooves, there is polyphonic improvisation, boppishly torn themes are blown, it swings and stomps as if unleashed, the saxophone plays buzzing riffs, the trombone makes funny vocal sounds – who would have thought that such a reduced line-up can produce such a variety of forms and rhythms! Hands-on, unaffected, it’s a lot of fun, you want to dance pogo to it. More of this please!
