Alba is the premiere recording of trumpeter Markus Stockhausen’s duo with pianist Florian Weber, a formation in existence for some six years now. Though very different in their connections to the language of jazz, both musicians share a deep interest in the process of creative expression: of looking inwards and outwards with intensity at things, for echoes, resonances, insights.

Robert Rich & Markus Reuter are well-known for their many musical journeys - from the back of beyond to the brink of the mainstream. On Lift a Feather to the Flood they mainly explore tonality, and many of its subtle shades and moods. With Rich at the grand, and Reuter breathing out atmospheres and textures from his touch guitar and synth, this duo realizes eight subtle thought zones meant for pondering and questioning - more so than assurance and confirmation. On Lift a Feather to the Flood we do find the dignified, stately procession of reverberant piano notes walking thoughtfully through a cloudy haze of digital mist…

Following the Matthias Goerne Schubert Edition for harmonia mundi, a venture that has revealed his stature as the foremost interpreter of lieder, especially at its darkest, Matthias Goerne has now selected 19 gems, lovingly fashioned by Schumann in the year of his marriage (1840). They are contrasted with those of the Düsseldorf period (1849-52). From the fragrant flowers of the bouquet of 'Myrtles' to the nocturnal atmosphere of the 'Six Poems and Requiem' the mood spans Schumman's joy in his marriage to his beloved Clara but also the darkest despair: in which he erects a worthy monument to his soulmate, the poet and arch-melancholic of his time, Nikolaus Lenau.

Markus Stockhausen, einer der weltbesten Trompeter, hat mit seiner Formation Quadrivium, das sind Pianist Angelo Comisso, Perkussionist Christian Thomé sowie Cellist Jörg Brinkmann, mit seelenvollen Balladen, kammermusikalischen, atmosphärischen Klängen und Jazzrock-Anmutungen ein eingängiges, dabei vielschichtiges Album aufgenommen, das er der kürzlich verstorbenen Tonmeisterlegende Walter Quintus widmet. "Far Into The Stars" evoziert eine einzigartig schwebende, dabei geradezu kinematographisch wirkende Stimmung, die ergreift.

The re-release of Hans Koller's 1966 Relax With My Horns (MPS, Germany) shows a master at the top of his game. For the listeners, the disc is composed, arranged and produced with a sense of cheekiness… Trio of jazz musicians, with overdubbing of up to four saxophones on the session. The sum is a tidy little package of swing, blues and multi-tracked sax that echoes the iconic group Supersax.

Vision I portrays canonically overlaid sax parts played at breakneck speed before moving into a relaxed bluesy groove, then turns to blistering multi-horn solos. The dirge-like For Dolphy, with the plaintive vocal cries of the altos, was dedicated to the great alto saxophonist Eric Dolphy. The med swing and skewed bluesy feel of For H.G. features the tenor out front. Tryptichon is a challenging angular composition in 3 parts with free improvisation moving from slow to up-tempo and back. With its Dolphyesque melody, Music For Jule is a frenetic excursion with an oblique reference to Monk. For Koller, Ballad For Marlies evokes the essence of a ballad. A Different Theme comprises three phrases played in different times – perfect food for the soloists. Vision II is a free-form ballad with Rittenbacher doubling piano and Koller’s expressive sax solo.
