It is phenomenal how fresh Kraan's sound sounds even on their 2020 CD "Sandglass" - the trio effortlessly manages to catapult 70s jazz rock into the present.
It all started in Ulm in 1970, when the brothers Peter and Jan Fride Wolbrandt founded the band with Hellmut Hattler and "Alto" Pappert. With crisp rhythms, catchy melodies and virtuoso solos, Kraan combined jazz and rock, as one of the first bands in Germany and with growing success. An example is the grandiose double album "Kraan Live", on which some pieces lasted over ten minutes. The band broke up, got back together and Hattler in particular achieved world fame as an electric bassist with innovative plectrum technique and a characteristic sound. Besides various side projects, Kraan is currently very active again and also inspires a young audience - with modern elements like samples and electronic sprinkles.
Kraan - a musical legend rises like Phoenix from the ashes and really lets it rip with distinctive grooves!
