Sa, 25. Juni 

Matthias Schwengler – Trompete
Matthew Halpin – Saxophon
Reza Askari – Bass
Philipp Brämswig – Gitarre

Mit “Soulcrane” präsentiert Matthias Schwengler einen Klangkörper, der es glänzend versteht, Retro-Feeling und neue Ansätze unter einen Hut zu bringen. Bei ihrem dritten Album „Soulcrane & Strings“ (Mons Records) arbeiten die Musiker abermals gemeinsam kompositorisch an einem klanglichen Werk und bleiben mit dem warmen Charakter dieser Musik stets auf einem kammermusikalischen Niveau. Geschafft wird eine Atmosphäre, die einer Unterhaltung unter Freunden gleicht. Soulcrane überzeugt mit einer fast familiären Persönlichkeit und verdeutlicht, wie eindringlich insbesondere die leisen Töne wirken können. Jedes Instrument ist gleichberechtigt und die vier Kölner Musiker verstehen es, den großen Spielraum stets musikalisch wertvoll zu füllen.Gemeinsam treten sie ganz natürlich als Kollektiv in Erscheinung und strahlen dabei große Harmonie und innere Ruhe aus.

„Fast schon wehmütig schwebt der Klang der Trompete durch den Raum…“
(Jazzthetik – Sep 2020)
„This album is highly recommended!“
(Jazz in Europe – Jul 2020)
„Another Step We Take ist für jene ein Must, die die Essenz von Tönen spüren und genießen wollen.”
(Jazz ’n’ more – Juli/Aug. 2020)
