LEO KREPPER

Realities

 

Young up-and-coming jazz guitarist Leo Krepper, currently a precocious student at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, has shown early signs of a rare gift as a melodic and inventive improviser as well as composer of jazz music. Krepper's debut-album Realities showcases an impressive body of work from the guitarist's pen, supported by a top-notch jazz ensemble of Swedish elite jazzers, spearheaded by the world-renowned trumpetist Gustavo Bergalli. Enhanced by a beatifully mixed recording, the sublime efforts of Krepper's crew as well as his choice to include tracks of spoken passages make this album stand out as a very extraordinary listening experience, as the last track says: Something Special!
