Rudi Mahall, bcl/cl

14. January 2018 Jazz Portrait

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…

Hayden Chisholm & Kalle Kalima Duo @ Jazz & The City Salzburg 2017

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.
