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!!

Groove Galore - Daniel Stelter comes up with new album!

17. February 2012 - 16:51 -- Timothy Davies
On his new album ‘Krikelkrakel’, Daniel Stelter links to the tone colour he developed on his last CD ‘Homebrew Songs’ (both released on Herzog Records). This music has its roots in Cool Jazz, Mississippi Blues and subtly rough, rolling grooves and those are not explicitely made for inveterated jazz fans! Well defined melodies as well as comprehensible musical structures that are reduced to the essential – that’s the key to lead the four energetic and adventurous musicians to come down to business!
