Rudi Mahall (oh yeah, one of a few musicians without a website) is one of my most photographed motives. He just plays in too many bands I like: Underkarl, Fossile 3, Der rote Bereich, Monk’s Casino, Die Enttäuschung – just to name a few. This series is something special: Rudi’s speech at the award ceremony for the SWR Jazzpreis 2014, which he received 2014. Some “instrumental photos” will follow in another gallery…
It was an impressive and unique concert at Jazz & The City Salzburg: Hayden Chisholm (sx) and Kalle Kalima (gt) for the very first time together as a duo. Two outstanding improvisers in a very special setting at “Braugaststätte Krimpelstätter“, with a mixed audience: jazz afficionados and “normal” people. The latter maybe surprised to hear this improvised music by two true jazz greats and still enjoying their beer and rustic meals.
Heinz Sauer (saxophone) and Uwe Oberg (piano) played their cd release concert for “Sweet Reason” (Jazzwerkstatt Berlin) at Jazzinstitut Darmstadt on 17/12/15.
