AMBROSIA & FUN FLOWERS | new CDs

A lot of great music is being released these days. Despite the difficult financial circumstances for Jazz releases many artists keep creating great stuff and put all their energy into making beautiful records. I was lucky to be part of two very special projects that now have been released. On the one hand this is Sebastian Boehlen who has written very challenging and exciting music for quintet. On the other hand Dierk Peters put together a six piece band where I had the pleasure to play only clarinets. Please feel free to check the music out and buy a CD if you like it!

DREAMING OUT LOUD

Klaus Graf and I did a nice quartet concert at Jazzstudio Nürnberg last Wednesday. Marco Kühnl on bass and Julian Fau on drums joined us for a very special evening of Jerry Bergonzi music, some original material and extended soloing. Lukas Diller took some great pictures:
