Goethe Pop Up Kansas City partners with The Blue Room Jazz Club in presenting the Berlin-based jazz band Der lange Schatten (Håvard Wiik/piano, Michael Thieke/clarinet, Antonio Borghini/bass). The Berlin-based trio is a collective project exploring improvisation in the wide field of jazz through original compositions brought by each of the musicians involved. Piano, reed, and string instrument, a line-up deeply rooted in chamber music tradition, is capable of shaping a strong counterpoint, either of melodic lines or abstract soundscapes.
Kansas City is designated UNESCO Creative City of Music since 2017.
