May 2013

GUT CD presentation and lots of studiowork

A lot is new in May!

It was a big pleasure to be on stage and in the studio with the new project of trumpet player Florian Beckmann at the beginning of this month. In addition to that I recorded some drumtracks for the Ep of saxophone player Angela Puxi and we had a great CD release concert with GUT, presenting our new album "Le chien du jazz" All people in volved in the production were present! Furthermore I was in the jury of a jazz drum competition, the niveau of playing was really awesome! Ind the end Cologne based drummer Silvio Morger made it. 

The rest of the month will be fairly quiet, playing some galas etc. so I can enjoy some time for myself, hopefully...
