Ronny Graupe`s “Spoom” was founded in 2004. After the trio initially concentrated on jazz standards, the group began to work with compositions written by Ronny Graupe. In contrast to traditional jazz standards, these compositions follow elements of classical music.
The musical context is limited – unlike traditional jazz – not just to short musical themes, on which improvisations are based; musical ideas are molded and processed so that a longer compositional arch can be recognized.
