About the album
"Rüdiger Baldauf's album "Own Style" is one of those rare and beautiful cases when jazz lovers and non-fans are in agreement; cool music, excellent playing, top-class production, and "very sexy" overall.”
Bestselling author Frank Schätzing’s clear and enthusiastic verdict is beautifully reflected by the meteoric rise in Rüdiger Baldauf fans.
Arguably one of the most versatile trumpet and flugelhorn players in the business, Baldauf proves that jazz is as diverse and expansive as the people who play it with his solo debut "Own Style".
For anyone who hasn’t had the pleasure of hearing the sonic fireworks that he ignites with his top band live on stage, it is all presented here in this sensational CD/DVD package!
After only a few bars of the "Trumpet Night - Live" CD/DVD, you’ll be caught up in the fantastic atmosphere of a Baldauf concert. The CD/DVD recordings were made in the summer of 2011 at a concert in Cologne’s "Alten Pfandhaus", and give you first-hand experience of Rüdiger Baldauf and his star guests Ack van Rooyen, Joo Kraus and Andy Haderer making the air pulsate with their sounds. When you hear what this crème de la crème of brass and rhythm sections brings to the stage, you’ll wish you’d been there!
(And for those who were there, what a way to remember a great live experience!)
