About the album

One might be inclined to call Compulsion a classic BeBop quintet. However, the combination of violin and trumpet (replacing the traditional tenor sax and trumpet) opens up completely new possibilities in the front line, creating a rarely heard and refreshingly original sound texture.
The arrangements are characterized by their simplicity and transparency. Intelligently orchestrated, energetically interpreted and undeniably swinging: this is the unmistakable sound of Compulsion. Even after repeated listening, new tasty details continue to reveal themselves.
Jazz violinist Adam Taubitz in particular sets new improvisational standards for his instrument, which otherwise is almost totally absent in modern jazz. In doing so, he fills a stylistic gap, which will undoubtedly attract a lot of attention.
Thomas Dobler
