Man is not well known for his foresightedness. That's why we want to help a bit. In exactly one year from today, the VIVA ALTONA! Festival will take part at the Fabrik Hamburg. On the occasion of Herzog Records' 10th Anniversary. So we want to surprise you with a "Night of Groove" on March 18th 2016, brought to you by the brass band Marshall Cooper and the electronic-jazz group Nighthawks. And the day after, on March 19th 2016 the "Night of Soul" will end the festival.
The Nighthawks have many different airways. A prestigious and pleasant venue will be approached on 03/14 however. It's about the "Grillo Theater" in Essen, Germany! Be there or be square!
Reiner Winterschladen is nominated for the German "Echo Jazz" - Award as "Best Instrumentalist of the Year / Brass Instruments National". Reason for this nomination is the last Nighthawks record 'Rio Bravo'. Herzog Records congratulates trumpet player Reiner Winterschladen on this, and congratulations to the band as well.
The Nighthawks can be seen in Poland time and again. Wether in Gdynia, Krakow or in Katowice - like on Febuary 24th. The band has a lot of fans in Poland, who will make this a wonderful concert at the marvellous philharmonic hall in Katowice. Begins at 7 p.m.!
What else does a singer have to prove himself, if he already released three successful soul jazz albums? Jeff Cascaro was looking for another challenge and found one. Olaf Stötzler, the manager of the hr- Bigband, brought Jeff Cascaro together with his bigband again. This collaboration resulted in a rhythm'n soul night, that has been performed twice and will partially be released online on decembre 5th. Jeff Cascaro & hr- Bigband - Soul Town. Open your ears - this is just terrific! Soul music cannot be more captivating.
What does a band do when its tour is over. Imagine three musicians sitting in a café and musing happily about the ten has-been concerts. People came to see them anywhere. This music is too thrilling obviously. And of course the band recorded every concert of the tour on harddrive, like professionals certainly do. I think there's enough reason to look forward to 2015. There will certainly be live versions available for purchase. But first of all a little break. Thanks to the fans, the band says: bye for now!!
The day has come... The long-awaited release of "Moving Parts"! Benny Greb, internationally succesful drummer presents his new project on tour! (dates in our "LIVE"-section) On those days we are checking the charts, obviously; iTunes has become an institution in this field, too. The Internet is a fast moving media, rankings are constantly changing. But: Benny Greb's "Moving Parts" stands its ground emong the top3 and justifiably so!
Benny has made up his mind to concentrate on his band. It was his fine musical instincts that brought him together with the UK musicians Kit Downes (keys) and Chris Montague (git.). Kit Downes was nominated ‘Rising Star’ by the Downbeat Magazine in 2013. Aside from being an excellent guitarist, Chris Montague also...

On October 18th German music TV VIVA broadcasted Fantastische Vier's second (!) MTV Unplugged with its totally impressive atmosphere of the Balve Cave. They were featured by our fantastic flamenco guitarist Rafael Cortés. And one will be surprised how well these two sound properties fit together...
Jessica Gall did enter the jazzcharts on #11 with her new album Riviera and even our a-capella ladies Les Brünettes could celebrate a charts-entry on #26 with their first album! Together with Nighthawks' Live in Hamburg and Jeff Cascaro's The Other Man they're Herzog Records' chart entries no. 3 and 4 in 2012. Cheers to that and great thanks to you!
