The jazz trio led by the Hamburg double-bass player performs music from its new album at the Elbphilharmonie.

Lisa-Rebecca Wulff was born in Hamburg in 1990, and studied double bass and electric bass in Bremen and Hamburg.

In addition to her own bands and projects, she can also be heard regularly in the NDR Big Band, and she tours with artists like Nils Landgren, Christof Lauer, Rolf Kühn, Caecilie Norby and Wolfgang Haffner. 

In 2019 she won the Hamburg Jazz Prize which is awarded by Jazzbüro Hamburg to artists who have made an especially valuable contribution to the Hamburg jazz scene.

Since 2013, Lisa Wulff has been playing with the drummer Silvan Strauß, who has a well-established reputation as a sideman (e.g. with Monica Roscher, Maria Joao) and bandleader (urban academy, Pecco Billo) and with sax player Adrian Hanack (e.g. Meute, we don’t suck we blow), who is always good for a surprise ranging from avant-garde solos to imaginative and airy ballad interpretations.

As the Lisa Wulff Quartet they are releasing the album »Beneath The Surface« in April 2020.
