New Album out on Unit Records

"A skilled navigator of contemporary European jazz sensibilities."
London Jazz News, February 2019

 

"Elements from other genres flow into the music without transitions, but don't dilute the jazz in any way. Rather, they illuminate its modern essence in a new light."
Jazz ‘n‘ more, March 2019

 

„In his original, tasty instrumental compositions, the electric bassist born in 1979, underscores the tonal spectrum of his instrument.“

Jazzthing, March 2019

PANDEMIC DANCE #21

 

In April 2020 I participated in Gene Pritsker's project „Pandemic Dances“, a series of duos for guitar and other instruments. The basic idea is that composers/performers write short pieces for each other and record their parts at home.

 

Check out Gene’s piece "Pandemic Dance #21", mine called „Blues for two“ and all the other ones.

TAKEN FROM THE SKIES

"This is never an end in itself, everything is based on convincing ideas. Conclusion: Tele-Jazz at it's best!"

Concerto 2018

 

"...recorded with Carsten Hein on electric bass (he’s the secret sauce in this album’s sound) and Derek Scherzer on drums, along with guest tenor sax player Finn Wiesner..."

London Jazz News 2018

 

“…in a dream-like interaction and always straight to the point, with precise timing and noticeable joy in playing, the trio shows its great musical experience.”
