About the album

I’ve selected each song on the album because it speaks to my heart in a very personal way. Making music takes my mind to a special place, filling me with an awareness of being a link in a chain; a chain of ideas and musical approaches that I’m treating with great care while trying to keep them going.
Ich habe jeden Song auf dem Album ausgewählt, weil er mir auf eine sehr persönliche Weise zu Herzen geht. Musik zu machen bringt mich an einen besonderen Ort und erfüllt mich mit dem Bewusstsein, ein Glied in einer Kette zu sein; einer Kette von Ideen und musikalischen Ansätzen, die ich mit großer Sorgfalt behandle, während ich versuche, sie in Gang zu halten.

... Absolute straightness, almost blind trust in the common ability, playing art of captivating virtuosity and inventiveness, which does not awaken nostalgic memories...
Concerto Austria, 01-10-2022

... Elegantly the tunes dance, it swings fine and in the ballads there are the big feelings..., 25-8-2022

... Besides popular evergreens like "Moonlight Serenade" or "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", Bossa Nova classics like "Samba de Orfeu" complete the delightfully swinging session.

... Tenorist Scott Hamilton, located in the mainstream, realizes an airy variation to this, which continues in the actions of the pianist and rhythm team...
Stereo, 01-11-2022

... this is absolutely cultivated entertainment with a balanced mixture of different styles of jazz.
Musikansich, 12-9-2022

... here with heart and soul world-famous melodies are brought into a actually no longer contemporary, melodious and swinging context...
NaDann, 31-8-2022

You can accuse the leader of moving in a somewhat derivative aesthetic, but at the same time you have to admit that he can put his stamp on it...
