TC Debus, Lömsch Lehmann, Erwin Ditzner @ Speyer 180309

What an exceptional trio: Matthias Debus (b), Lömsch Lehmann (sx, cl) and Erwin Ditzner. This is not only the well known Ditzner Lömsch Duo, but a project by the Mannheim based double bass player Matthias Debus. „Die Motive des Richard W.“, where „W.“ is no one else but famous german composer Richard Wagner. Wagner’s strong motives (Leitmotive) and melodies are transformed by these gifted jazz masters into their own jazz flavoured idiom. Witty and jazz rooted, hope to hear that on a record soon.
