A composing jazz musician - and strictly speaking, that's everyone, since improvisation means “instant composing“ - can draw inspiration from a wide variety of sources: from the characteristics of his instrument, from the music of his predecessors, from experiencing the world, whether as a memory or as a current impression, and more than in any other genre from meeting other musicians. On the first duo album by accordionist Klaus Paier and bassist Florian Dohrmann, one can experience the rare case of everything coming together. As always, Paier immerses himself more sensitively than anyone else in the sound of his bandoneon and his accordion and Dohrmann has a special feeling for the thick strings of his bass - best illustrated by the art object on the album cover, consisting of a bass string and an accordion key. The two virtuosos find their themes in standards by Ellington and Mingus as well as in their own compositions and improvisations. A kaleidoscope of motifs, colours and rhythms reflect their thoughts and feelings. And above it all is the intoxicating flow of their interplay, which can only come from a musical affinity beyond all styles and genres. A duo and an album for which no better title could have been found than: "Inspired Rendevous".
