I’m very excited about my new project PYJAMA. It features wonderful musicians from the Cologne jazz scene I have played with in different contexts over the last years. Our first concert will be at the Loft in Cologne!
This summer I have been working on a fantastic Chris Potter Solo. It’s on one of my all time favorite records PAUL MOTIAN & E.B.B. - MONK & POWELL. Below you can find a version of me playing along with it and there’s also a pdf version of the solo for you to download.
From our recent GOLDEN SPHERES release tour I have created a youtube playlist with 4 videos from our gigs in Mannheim and Cologne. Feel free to subscribe to the channel.
The second part of our GOLDEN SPHERES release tour started in Mannheim last week. We had a wonderful time at Klapsmühl'. Great pictures once again by Uli Templin and nice review in the "Mannheimer Morgen".
SCHMID's HUHN is releasing its second album GOLDEN SPHERES on shoebill music, Berlin. We will be playing a couple of release concerts in the next days. Hope to see you around!

The last couple of weeks I spent some time practicing a beautiful solo by Stan Getz on the Jazzstandard 'Out of nowhere'. It's an absolutely amazing solo! Stan is on the left, myself on the right channel:
