Clarinettist and composer Steven Kamperman presents a quartet under the name of Carrousel. The CD Mallemolen is an album devoted to the magic world of the funfair. Merry-Go-Rounds, musical quacks, the lady with the beard, a giant Ferris Wheel all pass the revue. Exuberant improvisations and intimate sketches alternate.

World class piano player Jeroen van Vliet (member of Eric Vloeimans’ Gatecrash), versatile bassist Meinrad Kneer (member of Trio Baars-Kneer-Elgart) and the young Austrian drum talent Andreas Pichler (member of Wolfgang Muthspiel Trio) complete the line-up. Steven Kamperman’s Carrousel presents an imaginative collection of sounds in a classic jazz quartet line-up.
