Bassist Robert Lucaciu and drummer Philipp Scholz are from Leipzig and are long term collaborators on many projects. Recently they met Cologne based pianist Jürgen Friedrich and saxophonist Hayden Chisholm from New Zealand which resulted in the formation of the quartet Nautilus.
All four have made a name for themselves in various jazz contexts and reach a whole new collective sensibility in Nautilus. As they search for sound together, the music they make is incredibly soft and organic The care with which the band approaches not only their music, but also themselves is nearly unprecedented in contemporary jazz.
Join them on their UK tour of select dates here at the Blue Lamp.
