about

KLARO!

[‘klärō] (adj., dial., Ger.: 1. clear, lucid, obvious 2. right, true, real) started a long time ago as a play on words with my nickname “Karo”. Ever since I was little, “Klaro-Karo” was a word of encouragement used by family and friends. So it was only natural to name my band and my debut CD as a leader after it – simply KLARO!

This group is the result of living in one of the most creative and musically stimulating places – New York City. It is also a consequence of having had the opportunity to meet, work with and learn from some of the finest musicians in the world. Ultimately, it is the collaboration with the wonderful musicians in the group – their tremendous talent, imagination and enthusiasm.

Recorded at Systems Two Studios in Brooklyn, NY, by David Baker.
