About the album
"For his new album, Maik has put together a variety of moods and grooves. Technical extravaganza pairs with musical instinct and cunning. His partners Constantin Krahmer (p/rhod), Oliver Lutz (db), and Leif Berger (dr) offer relentless support and make for an exciting listening experience. Seamus Blake adds his own particular vibe and eloquence to some of the tunes. Maik's immaculate trumpet playing thrives on influences of the great heroes of the instrument, today's and yesterday's. His compositions switch from intricate to thoughtful revealing an intellectual musical mind. My compliments for a strong jazz album."
