The Klaus Graf Quartet

After having played with different national and international jazz formations, alto saxophone player Klaus Graf founded his first own quartet in 2001. The music largely consists of the band leader’s compositions, which were written to reflect the quartet’s concept: jazz with a soul character, melody-based and groove-driven music. The musicians of the Klaus Graf jazz quartet are internationally recognized jazz soloists and regularly collaborate with different jazz stars.
