JazzAhead! 23.04.2020 – Expectations vs Reality

This year I had A LOT planned for jazzahead!

Two new albums and live shows. With my main project ABYSS with Igor Osypov, Povel Widestrand, Tom Berkmann and Fabian Rösch and the Space Big Band with Kenneth Dahl Knudsen and a heap of amazing musicians! Add a few collabs and an electronic solo project – no doubt, I was looking forward to hanging, networking and just catching up with friends and musicians!

In reality, things don’t always go our way.

What hasn’t changed is me having hands full of music to play and write + still keeping up with a positive attitude. And my “Perfect timing” shirt now fits both my musical as well as the mental state I aim for… a good attitude these days ???? If you want one, see my merch shop.

Now I’m looking forward to next year! Thanks to #jazzahead! organisers for offering artists a full refund. Looking forward to 2021 being a blast!

See you soon next year, JAZZin, Jersika Records, JAZZ9TUS and all my jazz friends!

A new quarantine collaboration and some ewi action! Here it is! My tune “Whiskey-Wine” ????????with my Bordeaux friends!

It’s crazy to think that less than 2 months ago I was touring and travelling across the South of France and now – exclusively from my shed. Super happy I met Félix Robin music and other musicians on this trip. Great to keep in touch with friends even when miles away. Especially now.

Felix on the vibraphone, Louis Laville on upright bass and Simon Lacouture on drums. The project is called Exchange of Happiness, check them out!
