Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Thomas Rückert is a quiet rebel who knows exactly what he wants, especially on his new CD Parvaneh (the Persian word for "butterfly"). On this stunning new album, Rückert updates his artful fantasy world, which he began to construct on his previous album Meera. Along with his partners Reza Askari (bass) and Fabian Arends (drums), he develops an unusual form of dynamics in 11 pieces.
