INFOBOXGenre(s): Jazz/Improvised Music
From: Vienna, Austria
On its eponymous debut album, Little Rosies Kindergarten is trying to tread new and formerly unexplored paths. The big band’s expansive pieces run the gamut from minimalistic to broad, from quiet to loud, from straight to crooked, from soft to energetic, from melodious to experimental. Wearing many hats, the band members create an idiosynchratic mix of free jazz, rock, and chamber music, at once strange and fascinating. Audiences can hardly extract themselves from the pull of these multilayered and tension-laden musical stories which evoke different moods of varying intensity.
