Award-winning London-based saxophone player and composer Kasper Rietkerk worked with John Carrol Kirby, Eddie Chacon and Jean Toussaint among others. His work is rooted in a jazz tradition,but also influenced by rock, hiphop and pop music.

‘The Island’ is his first full length album released under his own name. The album is about the experiences he had during his first two years in the UK. It is about the beauty of living abroad and personal development. But also reflects the dark side in a time of war in Europe and an uncertain future. It will be launched with a big live show at Pizza Express Soho London on the 24th of June.

On this album his sextet KRSIX welcomes Emma Rawicz (Ship of Fools), Anatole Muster (Roll it in Glitter) and Immy Churchill. Kasper also arranged all seven songs for string quartet which gives the album a unique sound.
