    Lucia Boffo trio presents NOMADE


    Lucia Boffo: vocals, piano, Ableton live and composition
    Mathilde Vendramin: cello and vocals
    Leo Gerstner: drums

    The Argentinian singer and composer presents music from her first solo album NOMADE with her trio integrated by piano, cello, drums and vocals.

    Her music lives in between Jazz, Argentinian folk, instrumental and experimental music.
    .
    “Nómade is an album of stories that are slightly immersed in various musical genres, but in which the protagonists are the stories themselves. Concocted layers, loopings, mixes of analog and digital sounds, superimposing elements, generating settings so these stories could be told.

    Combined in this body of work, is my youth (Ushuaia), my first experiences with a variety of music styles (Buenos Aires) and my recent training as a jazz singer (Berlín), and now can be heard in what is a new me.” says Lucia.

    inEvitable (changes)


    Evi Filippou – vibraphone, voice, percussion
    Andi Haberl – drums
    Arne Braun – guitar
    Eldar Tsalikov – alto sax, clarinet
    David Helm – bass

    inEvitable is the latest musical endeavor of Evi Filippou. It revolves around experimentation on the forms of Greek folk, jazz and improvisational music.

    The need for personal expression led the percussionist and songwriter into a path of musical research on her listening roots, back to the folk heritage of her home country, with tunes that range between timeless traditional melodies, the modern singer-songwriter tradition and the folk songs of the ’60 and 70’s.

    At the same time, her course in the contemporary and improvisational Berlin scene has mingled with this deep endemic investigation.
    This particular merge of genres and personal experiences, resulted in the creation of inEvitable, a band comprised of Eldar Tsalikov (clarinet, alto saxophone), Arne Braun (guitar), Moritz Baumgärtner (drums) and Robert Lucaciu (double bass).
    On December 2nd, inEvitable shows up with a different Rhythm Section for some invitable changes.

    Bruchgold & Karotte (Schleiermacher/Hochapfel/Rössler/Fischerlehner)




    Johannes Schleiermacher: Tenor Saxophone, Flute.
    Jörg Hochapfel: Piano, Melodica, maybe Guitar.
    Isabel Rössler: Double Bass.
    Rudi Fischerlehner: Drums.

    BRUCHGOLD & KAROTTE is the freely improvising companion to Jörg Hochapfel’s surrealist Jazz combo „Bruchgold & Koralle“, again featuring saxophonist Johannes Schleiermacher, and joined by the brand new rhythm section of Isabel Rößler and Rudi Fischerlehner.
    It’s the first time all four of those genre-defying musicians actually meet on a stage, so be prepared for anything: exciting and unexpected things might happen!

    JOHANNES SCHLEIERMACHER joined the band of Free Jazz legend Gunter Hampel at age 17 and soon after moved to Berlin, where he still lives.
    He founded „Woima Collective“ in 2009 and „Onom Agemo and the Disco Jumpers“ in 2012, releasing 5 albums as band leader and producer.
    He is a steady member of duo TRAINING, Max Andrzejewski’s Hütte, Shake Stew, Bruchgold & Koralle and Rodinia, while also playing with Hermeto Pascoal, Tony Allen, Perry Robinson, Shabaka Hutchings, Jimi Tenor and the Poets of Rhythm.
    https://wordpress.johannes-schleiermacher.de

    JÖRG HOCHAPFEL is a player of keyed instruments and part-time guitarist, based in Berlin.
    Current projects are surrealist jazz band Bruchgold & Koralle, modular synth duo Palais d’Amour with Uwe Haas, exotica Zabots with Nils Kacirek and post-anything-project Hunger.
    He’s also part of Onom Agemo & The Disco Jumpers, Fabiana Striffler’s Archiotic and Max Andrzejewski’s Hütte Plays Robert Wyatt project, as well as having been a long time member of Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra and a short time member of the Jimi Tenor Band.
    www.joerghochapfel.com

    ISABEL RÖßLER is a German jazz bassist and improviser. After studying music in Nuremberg and Tallinn, she moved to Berlin in 2019.
    She is very active in the city’s fluid free improv scene and became a steady member of the Bigband „The Omniversal Earkestra“, performing every Monday.
    Besides her numerous collaborations with local and international artists, she has toured with her trio „Flut“ all over Germany and eastern Europe.
    https://www.facebook.com/isi.bass

    RUDI FISCHERLEHNER lives in Berlin and plays drums in various different musical projects that fall between improvised and experimental music, jazz and post-rock.
    He also composes and produces music for bands, film and performances. His current projects include the drum solo project 15 8 SLUM, Xenofox with Olaf Rupp, Der Dritte Stand with Matthias Müller and Matthias Bauer, and Ohlmeier / Khroustaliov / Fischerlehner.
    He also plays or has played with Gorilla Mask, the Julie Sassoon Quartet, Fiium Shaarrk, Tonia Reeh, Tristan Honsinger, Matthias Schubert, Mia Dyberg, Joke Lanz, Zsolt Sőrés, Erste Stufe Haifisch, the Sound 8 Orchestra and many more.
    As a producer and composer for film soundtracks he contributed to movies by Ella Raidel, Johanna Kirsch and Katharina Lampert and was involved in the art, video or performance work of Wilhelm Groener, Alterazioni Video and Katrin Plavcak among others.

    Antti Virtaranta doublebass

    Re: 2nite is a new Berlin-based free improvisation quartet that takes itself and the listener on a journey into the moment. Re: 2nite reflects the many rhythms and movements of city life.
    Acoustically distorted yet tuneful trumpet/saxophone lines weave in and out of each other intertwined with clear percussion beats and expanding use of the double bass, and suddenly Re: 2nite turns the direction in a split second.
    A deep arching bass tone leads the listener into a circular calm universe. The next city corner could show you hypnotizinging dance parties, construction work or the wind moving the leaves of the city trees.

    Fink 70s Revisited


    Die Frage ob sich wohl die Charaktereigenschaften wie Sensibilität, Humor und Sympathie, durch die sich die drei genialen Musiker auszeichnen auch auf die klangliche Grundschwingung des von ihnen fortwährend hingebungsvoll ausgeführten musikalischen Prozesses widerspiegeln, darf nach ersten positiven Hinweisen während der ersten Probenphase guten Gewissens mit ,Ja’ beantwortet werden.

    Die vorgetragenen Eigenkompositionen Fink’s, welche sich teilweise mit Wah-Wah-Sound am Cello Anleihen aus der 70er Jahre Funkmusik bedienen, vereinen über eine unsichtbar transzendentale Verbindung exzentrisches mit klischeehaften Material welches dem Zuhörer unterbewusst an die Konzertante Aufführung bindet und das Ereignis zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis machen.

    ENGLISH:
    Johannes Fink assembled this band to perform his latest compositions. Complete with wah-wah effects on the cello, the tunes borrow from 1970s funk while mashing up material that ranges from the eccentric to the clichéd.
    ”Fink’s fingers sing so sensationally that you want to see it because you can’t believe your ears.”” (R Dittmann, Bad Alchemy)
    “”Johannes Fink plucked and stroked his 5-string cello with a smile of amazement, as if his hand was being held from a higher place.”” (K Gohlke, TAZ)

    Marco Mlynek – guitar, vocals
    Max Andrzejewski – drums, synth, vocals

    Companion Songs is an experimental folk-rock project by guitarist Marco Mlynek with Max Andrzejewski on drums.
    An ongoing collection of stripped back instrumentals and songs, with simple melodies and repetition at their heart. Honest music, infused with energetic outbursts, light-footedly moving between stubborn singalongs and states of deep rest.

    Their debut “”EP I”” was released in April 2021 on Akkerbouw Records, a first full-length album is coming up in spring 2023.

    Lisbeth Quartett


    Charlotte Greve – saxophon
    Manuel Schmiedel – piano
    Marc Muellbauer – bass
    Moritz Baumgärtner – drums

    Mit «Release» legt das hochgelobte Lisbeth Quartett auf Intakt Records ein mit Spannung erwartetes Album vor. Nach zwölf Jahren und fünf Alben verließ sich Charlotte Greve, die soeben mit dem Deutschen Jazzpreis in der Kategorie Künstler:in des Jahres ausgezeichnet wurde, auf ihr intuitives Gespür, um die neue Musik für «Release» zu schaffen. Entstanden ist ein von einem einfühlsamen Zusammenspiel geprägtes Album voller subtiler und vielschichtiger Stücke, die zugleich sanft und kraftvoll fliessend sind.

    Obwohl die Musiker:innen zwischen Berlin und New York City leben, alle stets auf Reisen sind und an ihren eigenen Projekten arbeiten, scheinen sie aufgrund ihrer gemeinsamen Geschichte und der gegenseitigen Kenntnis ihrer instrumentalen Stile mit Leichtigkeit zu verschmelzen und zu harmonieren. “Sie alle haben die Fähigkeit kultiviert, ihre Instrumente sanft und rein zu spielen, was dem Stil der ausgeglichenen Sounds und Klangfarben entspricht, den sie im Laufe ihrer gemeinsamen Reise verfeinert haben.

    Zwölf Jahre sind eine lange Zeit, und die Spanne Tausender Momente, die sie miteinander geteilt haben, hat sie dorthin gebracht, wo sie heute stehen: als Einheit zu arbeiten, neue Musik in dieser postmodernen Ära zu erschaffen und ihr Vermächtnis als führende Band in der internationalen Jazzlandschaft weiterzuführen”, schreibt Jordannah Elizabeth in den Linernotes.


    2022 German Jazz prize artist of the year, saxophonist Charlotte Greve, shows how far her 12-year-old Lisbeth Quartett has come in its chamber-musical confluence of reedily murmuring wistfulness, minimalism, improv outbursts and effortless collective interplay on Release (Intakt). — John Fordham, The Guardian, July 8 2022 (EN)
    Best of Jazz on Bandcamp, June 2022

    “Whereas conventional melody tends to light the path that’s directly ahead, in the hands of the Lisbeth Quartett it instead casts its light in all directions, illuminating the environment in which the ensemble operates. The effect is one of melodic echoes, fragments that interact with harmony and percussion. I’ve been championing the music of Charlotte Greve for the better part of 10 years, and the saxophonist’s quartet with pianist Manuel Schmiedel, bassist Marc Muellbauer, and drummer Moritz Baumgärtner is one facet of Greve’s compelling recorded history to date.”
