About the album

Only a person who has a stable and navigable ship goes "Offshore". And who has a goal, even if it is only a vague one in the sense of "exploring new things". The quintet Offshore from Cologne also started their journey at the "Côte de Cologne", i.e., on the banks of the Rhine. The five students and graduates of Cologne Music College, where they obtained a solid basis for their excursions, joined together in 2009 and had an amazing start: Finalists and first-place winners of the contest "Startbahn Jazz 2010" (Straubing), winners of the "Convento" prize, finalists in the "European Jazz Prize 2011" (Burghausen) and the soloist prize for Dierk Peters there. Quite a respectable list! And quite something worth listening to! A somewhat unusual mixture with vibraphone, saxophone and piano trio enables sound textures, which attract your attention. The stylistic openness makes lyrical moods and groove-oriented, modern arrangements possible.  Modern jazz, which has very clear roots in jazz history, but just as clear stimuli from classical music and from current trends in jazz and pop, and consequently extends the horizon as far as possible – the reference to the open sea fits here too.
