Got an email from my dear friend  Axel Schlosser the other day. Axel is a great trumpet player whome I´ve known for quite some time now. His and drummer Jean Paul Höchstädter´s LP “Northbound/Southbound” is ready to be released on the very fine label “Edition Longplay”. The music was recorded last summer at Hansa Studios in Köln. We also did a few concerts in the Frankfurt area. The band features Rainer Böhm piano, Arne Huber bass, J-P Höchstädter drums, Axel Schlosser trumpet and myself on tenor and soprano sax.


Had a great week in Johannesburg, South Africa the last week of April. Did a recording and a few gigs together with great pianist/composer Nduduzo Makhathini. He picked me and fantastic norwegian bass player Magne Thormodsaeter up at the airport in Joburg. Basically we went straight to the studio recording. The album will soon be released. I´m very happy and proud to be a part of this project! You can watch videos on my video page from the recording. More gigs together with Nduduzo is coming up…I´m excited!
