    About the album

    A conversation with six-string people – a very ambitious and fascinating project by drummer Peter Weiss, in which he brings together the crème de la crème of German jazz guitarists. Great fun! No senseless noodeling, no posing or other Look-how-fast-I-am. The duos with one of the »Six-String-People« and Peter Weiss are great. From Monkish to Scandinavian expanses, from Tom Waits to Ornette, each one as different, as individual as the protagonists themselves. Peter Weiss belongs to the German jazz aristocracy, he is a drummer of the old guard, as the saying goes. His ride cymbal (and what he does with it) still belongs to the premier league of jazz drummers. He holds the whole project together, is like the big bracket around it. Always helpful to the band and particularly strong with the loose, ternary grooves.

    About the album

    Stylistically, as always with Rupi, the concert album is difficult to classify: a fascinating musical mix of jazz, funk, urban beats, industrial, lounge – the result is club sound with an addictive factor – and with a lot of atmosphere – impressions, visions, memories of that Life in the Ruhr area in the 60s – a life caught in the rhythm of industry – normal everyday life, unsentimental and still gripping – the sounds almost psychedelic – hypnotizing beats – catchy melodies.

    Joscha Oetz – bass

    Drei Jahre nach Erscheinen seines letzten Albums „Steppin Up`“ meldet sich Saxophonist und Weltenbummler Reiner Witzel gleich mit zwei neuen Produktionen zurück.
    Die beiden Alben, die die ganze Bandbreite des kreativen Ausnahme- Musikers, der bereits auf eine umfangreiche Liste von Konzerten und Produktionen ( u.a. mit Lew Soloff, David Liebman ,Defunkt, Alex Sipiagin, Fela Kuti, Third World, The Supremes und vielen anderen …) zurückblicken kann, könnten dabei wohl kaum unterschiedlicher sein.
    „WITZEL/BEIRACH/SCHEUBER/OETZ – „LIVE“ ist eine wunderbar frische und energiegeladene Doppel-CD, live aufgenommen bei einem Konzert in der Düsseldorfer Jazzschmiede im Frühjahr 2019. Ohne Netz und doppelten Boden interpretieren die vier Bandmitglieder ihre eigenen Kompositionen ( darunter Klassiker wie Beirach`s „Leaving“ oder Witzel`s „Northern Fields“ ) sowie Standards mit großer Spielfreude ,mit Mut zum Risiko und durchaus mit Ecken und Kanten. Dabei ist die Musik gleichermaßen klassisch wie zeitgemäß.

    About the album

    The Romano Schubert quartet comprises four musicians dedicated to playing and exploring music, sharing the excitement and tension as they respond to the developing themes flowing between them. The melodies may often sound like old friends, at times dancing happily, at times racing into ecstatic modern jazz. Then again you might think you hear Basie swinging until a floating melancholy infuses chamber music like ballads with a radiating calm before dissolving into infectious funky grooves.
