‘Tis the Season – Of Weddings

This is the 30th year of my music career – in the summer of 1988 Peter and myself sold our belongings, bought one-way tickets, and left our German home to make music our careers and take advantage of a one year exchange scholarship to the University of Alabama. We quickly realized that playing club gigs for the door with our original music would not generate enough income to pay the rent and groceries. (more…)

Time Flies LP Release Tour

We’re very excited to announce the release of the Time Flies LP, recorded last July in Germany and featuring new takes of tracks with legendary saxophonist Bob Berg as well as collaborations with German saxophonists Peter Lehel, Sandi Kuhn, und Lutz H√§fner. The initial release tour is May 30 – June 9 in Europe, followed by a series of concerts in the US. As many are aware, Bob Berg was killed in a car accident during a New York Blizzard in 2002. We had the fortune of recording three of our originals with him in 1996. During last year’s recording session, we reworked those tracks and added new music featuring some of Europe’s leading players. The LP was produced by Michael Fetscher and Lothar Landenberger – here are the concert dates – and a taste from our Germany concert with fog machine! (more…)

Spring Tour Diary

Dear Diary

I’m in Pennsylvania at the Farmhouse Retreat run by vocalist and healer Barbara Montgomery – the final stop of our Spring Tour – before heading into Philadelphia for a weekend of Jazz and Poetry. It’s time to take a deep breath after seven days of non-stop driving, concerts, clinics over five States with some of the world’s most amazing jazz musicians and write down the memories while they are still fresh.

What goes up must come down – laws of physics – I sure hope I don’t have to come down from this wonderful experience of creating musical magic for these past three days. While it’s still fresh in my memory I’ll try to capture some of the moments. (more…)

Berlin – Symbolism

We just returned from a week in Berlin attending a conference, performing two concerts, and other lectures and activities. This is the third time over the course of one year that I ended up in Berlin – a concert and workshop last July at the IU Gateway Office, a week working on creativity and jam session research in October and this past week. Even though I grew up in Germany, I had been to Berlin only once before – in 1985. Yes, that was before the wall came down and we had to travel there on a highway that was enclosed by barbed wire and were forced to exchange a certain amount of money into DDR currency for a day visit to East Berlin.
