Before the storm...

Hello again!

During the last months I did a lot of recordings , including a complete album for the New York based singer Audrey Martells, a russian production, an EP for a slovakian progrock project and several songs for the Cologne based artist Helmut A. Wiemer . Talking about concerts I traveled around Germany, France and Switzerland a lot. Furthermore I had the anual Summerjazz and Vocaljazz workshops, which turned out successfully as well.

Opening up my new studio and producing a lot of stuff I was very glad to spend three weeks on a vocal jazz workshop as a rhythm teacher and playing drums where I could recharge my batteries again ;-) Due to that I was absent from the WWW a little while.

It was highly necessary due to heavy touring coming up. Til mid December I will play about 50 concerts throughout Europe with Beat Kaestli, Marianne Solivan, Audrey Martells and the fabulous rhythm section consisting of Walter Fischbacher and Petr Dvorsky We will share the stage with Joshua Redman or the Yellowjackets on some festivals . I am really looking forward to that.

Check out my dates, maybe there are some concerts in your area...
