Last Chance To Misbehave

Concentrated female energy is promised by Julia Hülsmann’s new project “Last Chance To Misbehave” with singers Ayse Cansu Tanrikulu and Mia Knop Jacobsen.


So on one stage united are :
– pianist/composer who has released seven albums for ECM and has been a figurehead of German contemporary jazz for years,
– a singer/composer/performer from Ankara, who has become an important part of the Berlin jazz and improvisation scene and is known for her unusual and rule breaking conception of new projects,
– a Danish singer/composer who is at home in both jazz and alternative rock/pop, traveling internationally with her own projects, and also performing on stage as a backing vocalist with musicians such as Quincy Jones, George Benson and Jacob Collier.

Once again, Julia Hülsmann proves her great instinct for selecting voices she would like to work with, bringing together two completely different and yet perfectly attuned singers. This female trio creates a musical cosmos around poetry, lyrical images and landscapes, moving freely within the surprisingly generous frame that two voices and a singing piano can set.

Each member composes specifically for this instrumentation. The very different compositional styles of the individual band members flow together to create a unified band sound, which is reflected in the original compositions and occasional cover songs – whilst the latter ones are given a new and often ironic and ambiguous touch. The focus is on originality, and the trio creates music between jazz, folk and experimental music while working with lyrics from Shakespeare to Beaumont – a unique style that hasn´t been heard before.
