FIRST-EVER DIGITAL RELEASE ANYWHERE!
DIGITALLY REMASTERED. Known mostly by collectors willing to pay large sums on eBay, "Pink Pong" is a remarkable album by a 21-year-old wunderkind who was equally comfortable in the worlds of rock and Schoenberg. This is adventurous chamber jazz that tweaks the tradition, explores new sonic textures, and strategically embraces beauty and structure.
Immediate download of 11-track album in your choice of MP3 320, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.
"An agile and tremendously gifted improviser, Gräwe has one of the most advanced harmonic sensibilities in contemporary jazz; he's a serious student of Schoenberg but also has some of the wavelike linearity of Lennie Tristano, filtered through the more energetic intensity of '60s free music." - Rough Guide to Jazz
