about

“This is one of the best hip-hop-jazz collaborations I’ve ever heard.”

“Nearly as impressive, these highly appealing tunes are improvised from start to finish, revealing jazzers with deep vocabularies responsive to whatever the moment demands.”

-Shepherd Express, Kevin Lynch

"More than just "Alive," these four tracks exemplify live music in its most liberating and adventurous form, from the alien ambience of "The Beholder" to Breiwick's dizzying trumpet improvisations and knowsthetimes' pulse-quickening turntable skills on "Heatwave", with magnetic verses from rapper CRASHprez throughout the EP."

-Piet Levy, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“Rife with spontaneity and elegance, this KASE record is a perfect foot to start on with the New Year.”

"Classics meet the ahead-of-its-time as conventional jazz elements mesh seamlessly with modern electronica."

-Breaking and Entering

"...the album crackles with the spontaneity unique to a live jazz set — you can sense the musicians playing off each other, reading each other, clearing out space for each other at times and claiming it for themselves at others."

-Evan Rytlewski, Radio Milwaukee

KASE is Jamie Breiwick (trumpet), John Christensen on (acoustic bass), and knowsthetime (turntables and ableton). Alive features special guests Tony Barba (woodwinds), Scott Currier (keybords) and the brilliant CRASHprez (raps). KASE invents textural soundscapes – incorporating live beats, turntablism, electronic elements, free improvisation and extended forms into the music that is crafted and created spontaneously. References for this project run the gamut from the contemporary mainstream to the avant guard to the classic... mixing jazz & hiphop – different branches of the same tree. That said, KASE has created something new and unexpected with this band and with this recording. You are invited to join them on that journey.
