Released by the Swedish Prophone label Kruse, who studied acoustic bass and improvisation at the university of arts n Berlin with Sigi Busch, Jerry Granelli and David Friedman and later in Sweden with Anders Jormin and during her time with German youth-jazzorchester BuJazzO took classes with the much missed pianist John Taylor who proved a big inspiration to the German player.

Completing the record line-up are Tjadina Wake-Walker, Uwe Steinmetz, and Christian Jormin. Listen to the title track, with its Delius-like opening, above.
