About the album

Günter 'Baby' Sommer is at the height of his musical career. After 'Song for Kommeno' (Intakt CD 190)
Sommer, one of the architects of European jazz drumming, now presents his Solo masterpiece.
The nine songs on the album tell stories and draw the listener into this exhilarating wonderworld of rhythms.
Tubular bells, hang, gongs, xylophone and an array of unusual percussion instruments plus his voice, transform his carefully chosen drum set into a percussive orchestra of rare intensity.

Günter 'Baby' Sommer, who lives in Dresden, East Germany, has dedicated this album to the great drummers of jazz: from Baby Dodds, from whom Sommer got his nickname, to Philly Joe Jones, Ed Blackwell, Max Roach, Pierre Favre, Han Bennink and Paul Lovens. From the first beat of the album you enter the world of swing, bebop, drive and pulse. This is a breathtaking adventure in sound and an exciting guide through the art of jazz drumming.
