Vol. 16 of the series with extraordinary reputation, "jazz thing next generation"

"The poetic tenor saxophonist Jochen Baldes ... sounds somewhat fragile and lyrical despite his virtuosity, and his ornamental-like improvisations, always searching for beauty, remind one of Charles Lloyd." (NZZ)

We again have the pleasure of a Swiss band in this series, which documents the high level of the jazz scene there. This will certainly not be the last time due to the fact that the internationally renowned Bern Jazz School is located in Switzerland. Jochen Baldes also studied there (under Andy Scherrer among others), but he also developed his skills further and continually at workshops with Mark Turner and Wynton Marsalis, among others. But he is certainly not a one-dimensional person despite that. In addition to music, he is also an ambitious and successful painter and sculptor
