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: Anthony Cox, Cornelius Claudio Kreusch, Johannes Tonio Kreusch – HOTEL CASABLANCA

At its best, a music album is a journey, for the musicians as well as for the listeners. Like hardly any other subject, music offers the chance to get from here to there and from yesterday to tomorrow without preconditions or borders, with one’s thoughts as well as one’s feelings. As a universal world language, it can take everyone with it. The adventure is all the greater when the tour guides come from different genres, but freely and impartially seek a common path. Like the avant-garde bassist Anthony Cox, the groove-oriented jazz pianist Cornelius Claudio Kreusch and the classical guitarist Johannes Tonio Kreusch. On their new album, the three now invite you to check into the “HOTEL CASABLANCA” as the basis of a remarkable expedition.
