Ronny Graupe

German World Service radio counted Graupe, who was born in East Germany's Karl-Marx-Stadt (today Chemnitz) in 1979, as one of the "most original guitarists in today's jazz scene", at the same time accrediting his "...rich world of tonal colors". Graupe is known through his work with the Berlin Jazz Collective and such groups as Hyperactive Kid. On Spoom Graupe shows himself first and foremost to be a soulful individual- ist as guitarist and a composer of pieces brimming with substance; pieces that exhibit substantial differences to the hearty barley stew simmering on the stove.
