The group is deeply rooted in tradition but also dares to look out for new musical paths

"Jazz is supposed to be the most unselfish of art forms. In jazz, you give yourself completely to make somebody else play their best. You try to do something to make them, inspire them to do something. So it is a matter of sacrifice." - Dizzy Gillespie

In this brand new cross-continental collaboration, acclaimed Swiss drummer Florian Arbenz joins the sensational Dutch hammond organ wizard Arno Krijger and US sax legend Greg Osby to launch the 9th album in the 'Conversation' series entitled "Targeted". Florian first collaborated with Osby back in 1998 and, whilst the professional relationship has now lasted over 25 years, this is their first project together featuring a hammond organ! 

Raised in St. Louis, Greg grew up with the hammond sound but never really used it in his own music. Arno is one of the few Hammond specialists who can play the bass with his feet perfectly! This gives him more freedom with his hands to shape the Hammond sound using the built-in effects, making his playing sounding more like an orchestra than a single musician! In addition to the listening pleasure, it is a real feast for the eyes to watch Arno Krijger master his Hammond! The jazz conversation continues!
