The foundations for the trio Robinson, Freitag & Caruso were laid at the Enschede Conservatory. The three Germany born musicians - pianist Christoph Mac-Carty, bassist Uli Wentzlaff and drummer Yonga Sun - concoct a thrilling mix of the three F’s: free jazz, folk and fast funk. Last year they won the Dutch Jazz Competition at the North Sea Jazz Festival. As usual the winner is allowed to join the Young Vips Tour, showcasing ‘extraordinary Dutch talent with an eminent self-penned repertoire.’ Furthermore Yonga Sun won the Solist’s Prize in the same competition for his unconventional way of playing. Robinson, Freitag & Caruso is comprised of three equal musicians who inspire, defy, complete and, especially ‘feel’ each other. Or, as they’ve stated themselves: the amalgamation is more important than the solo trips.
