Happy Release Day: Henning Sieverts – Bassolo


Henning Sieverts – double bass


“Henning Sieverts is a brilliant bassist who has the stylistic means of new music as well as those of jazz at his disposal.” (FAZ)

All alone, but together with his double bass – that is the new solo program of the Munich star bassist Henning Sieverts. Sometimes it is extremely delicate, sometimes grippingly groovy – plucked, bowed, stroked and tapped – everything seems possible in this “one bass show”. The album “Henning Sieverts: Bassolo” was recorded in the fantastic acoustics of Munich’s Auferstehungskirche.

All pieces of the recording are collected in a music booklet “Henning Sieverts: Bassolo”, in two versions each: plucked and bowed, with and without improvised parts.

Henning Sieverts is in demand worldwide as a bassist, cellist and composer. His discography includes over 150 CDs. Concerts and tours have taken Sieverts to all five continents. He has received numerous awards, such as the “Echo Jazz”, the New German Jazz Award (even 2x!), the first prize at the Jazz Competition of the “International Society of Bassists” and the State Promotion Prize of the Free State of Bavaria.

Henning Sieverts regularly gives composition and instrumental workshops in bass and cello, among others at the music academies of Zurich, Lucerne, Bern and Nuremberg. He is a lecturer in jazz bass at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Munich.

Sieverts also works as a jazz presenter for Bayerischer Rundfunk.

Happy Release Day: Izabella Effenberg – Impressions in Colours

“Izabella’s latest project combines the sound of vibraphone and harp with very special, unusual instruments such as glass harp, sundrum, array mbira, marimba, steel drum, crotales
or Waterphone, which rarely appear in jazz and improvised music. This creates completely new worlds of sound. Inspired by impressionism. The listener gets a chance to experience a new, different sound experience. The album features the extraordinary Polish – Japanese singer Yumi Ito from Basel (CH).

Happy Release Day: Nicole Heartseeker & Mulo Francel – Moon River

In their brand new fourth album, the duo Nicole Heartseeker & Mulo Francel offer a new perspective on the Great American Songbook when its melodies sound like Chopin or Erik Satie.

When “Fly me to the Moon” dances a nocturnal waltz with Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, when “Lullaby of Birdland” unfolds a baroque flair.

A new listening experience is created when a piano refreshes these old hits with classical patterns and a saxophone flavors them with elegant jazz improvisations.

Happy Release Day: Matthias Well – Maria Well – Vladislav Cojocaru Zingarissimo

The trio Matthias Well, Maria Well and Vladislav Cojocaru joins a special tradition with this album: Hungarian folk music.

Already in their early childhood, the siblings Matthias and Maria Well came into contact with this musical genre through their maternal grandfather. The grandfather, who came from the Hungarian town of Balas-sagyarmat, grew up above a lively coffee house where musicians stopped in every day and played typical Magyar folk melodies with their instruments. As a young boy, he was handed a violin one evening with the words “Hegedüljed” (‘Play!’). This event awakened his love for Hungarian music, which was passed down through generations.

But decades earlier, Hungarian folk music had already conquered the world’s great stages: between 1869 and 1880, Johannes Brahms published his 21 Hungarian Dances. Influenced early on by his former touring partner, the Hungarian violinist Eduard Reményi, he appropriated motifs and passages to adapt them in his own style and create new melodies.
