This summer I did quite a few recording sessions
with my buddies Stefan, Lothar, Frank and Niclas.
The first result is our new CD:
>Back To The Roots With Some Herbs<
which is out now, december 2020.
It was great fun playing at the >Vinyl-Cafe<. Great crowd, everyone was really listening! It was a gas! Thank you Heinz for having us!
With a little help from my friends: Frank Bergmann/ Niclas Floer/ Stefan Werni/ Lothar Wantia and Pit Podlasly I`ve recorded a new jazz CD with 13 original compositions of my own. On december 5, 2018 at 8 p.m. we will give a CD release concert at the Vinyl-Cafe "Schwarzes Gold" in Hervest-Dorsten.

Along with my long time fellow Stefan I recorded a CD with Jazz Standards,
songs we played a lot in the last decades, it`s called:
>Standard Time In Living Rooms< 2015

I picked up the guitar in the early seventies because of rock music,
especially because of latin-rock. Santana was my favourite Band.
Over the years I learned to play the guitar, but also got interested
in different styles of music. At last I made my way into jazz.
I never really tried to create some latin-rock stuff.
But finally, because I´ve never had the chance to find as many latin-rock albums
as I wanted, I came up with the idea of making one of my own, for myself
and all the other people in the world who would appreciate a new album
in that old style. As a german gringo I tried to reincarnate the
sound and feeling of one of the greatest musical styles I´ve ever heard.
The result is: >Sala Mi Wanida<
recorded over the last years with the collaboration of local musicians.
Special guest (on track 9) is Dave Caswell, the english trumpeter,
formerly member of :
Keef Hartley Band - Ashton, Gardner & Dyke - Paice, Ashton & Lord
He was on world tour with The Who 1979/1980,
toured with Rick Wakeman and many others.
This record could not have been realized without my long time buddy
Peter >Pit< Podlasly, with whom I first played some 35 years ago.
He knows a lot about african and latin rhythms and was a great force
in making this recording possible.
In the year 2000 we travelled to Havana (Cuba), where we took some
percussion lessons from local musicians. A few fragments are heard
in the intro and outro of: Mojito de la Habana.
Pit, you`re my: El Rey del Ritmo
