A quest for musical spirituality in the twentytens. Four young musicians transform their musical faith into C.A.R. With flaming empathy they develop a trip-like melange of jazz and electronics, improvisation and experiment, science fiction and film noir, krautrock and cyberpunk. Gleaming energy, kaleidoscopic thoughtfulness, subtle finesse and an undeniable love for the beat — capitalization of an intoxicating mix.

C.A.R. was founded in 2011 by Johannes Klingebiel and Kenn Hartwig in Cologne, Germany. Originally a quintet playing wild experimental jazz music with a pop approach, they eventually kicked the guitar and found their strength to be a subtly flowing mélange of kraut-like arrangements infused with electronic and jazz sounds. Featuring drums, double bass, a wurlitzer stage piano, korg and oberheim synthesizers as well as an alto saxophone heavily altered by electronic effect devices, their tunes leave a lot of space for improvisation, but not in classical jazz way with one soloist dominating the music, but always as a delicate web of sound which has a potential to take their audience on an enticing trip.
