KLARO! the quartet I co-lead toured extensively in 2013 celebrating the release of our new recording Small Moments. We were happily digging' deep into the music and discovering! We will continue this journey into 2014.
Joining saxophonist Karolina Strassmayer and me on our musical adventures were our dear friends and colleagues, vibraphonist Stefan Bauer, guitarist Cary DeNigris, bassists John Goldsby and Ingmar Heller.
From world renown jazz writer - Doug Ramsey's review of Small Moments...
"This international quartet’s blend of consistent quality and adventurousness give it staying power.
It is one of the most interesting small groups at work today."
I was recently offered a full artist endorsement from the ZILDJIAN cymbal company. I am very proud to be endorsing these great instruments….They give me much joy! I also endorse VATER Percussion….great sticks, brushes.
Aside from my performing activities scheduled for 2014, I have been invited to do 3 or 4 "jazz drumming & technique workshops" around Germany. For drummers….!
Some personal sentiments……from KLARO!
"We give thanks to the musicians who have touched our souls and sparked our love for music. This love continues to grow and drives us to create. We hope to move your spirit and warm your heart with our songs".
