Kirk Knuffke & Jesse Stacken “Satie” (SCCD 31822)

SCCD 31822 Kirk Knuffke & Jesse Stacken “Satie”

The music of the early 20th century French Avant-gardist Erik Satie for a jazz album makes perfect sense when its interpreters/performers are cornetist Kirk Knuffke and his long-time partner pianist Jesse Stacken. They both share their musical background in unconventional new/free jazz as well as classical training.

The Knuffke/Stacken duo has released a series of highly acclaimed albums with music by renowned composers of jazz.

“This is nostalgia made vibrant, played with precision, depth, good taste and a leisurely refusal to overcrowd its sonic space.”
(Martin Longley – AAJ on SCCD 31677 Mockingbird)
