|"In a time of much destruction, the creative act is more important than ever. Thankfully we still have artists such as Klaus Suonsaari and Frank Carlberg, who continue to create work of startling and surpassing beauty".
"OFFERING (KSJAZZ) is an intriguing duet project between Finnish musicians Klaus Suonsaari on drums and Frank Carlberg on piano. Cutting a wide stylistic swath while flaunting an obvious command of their instruments, Suonsaari and Carlberg run the gamut from gentle, ECM-ish textural pieces like "Suker," "Motion" and title track to dense, whirlwind pieces like the aptly named "Whack!" and "Frantic" to a humorous, Zappa-influenced jazz parody, "Broadway," from the bizarro circus music of "Tivoli" to an avant-garde deconstruction of the jazz standard "Tea for Two." From track to track these two kindred spirits demonstrate an easy chemistry together marked by a healthy blend of humor and fearlessness."
